Steven Lovci (Executive Vice President of Capital Projects, NYCHA) called ACEC New York to provide an update on the capital program:

  • NYCHA plans to proceed with the program they put in place over the last two years with no major disruptions expected.
  • They are monitoring sites, will modify processes and protocols as needed and they plan to continue to push ahead as best they can. 
  • Payments are moving forward without issues.
  • NYCHA has cash flow and does not expect a major slowdown.
  • Design Department is planning to issue additional task orders in the coming weeks and NYCHA intends to use this time to get ahead.
  • NYCHA noted the prospect of federal stimulus funds.
  • Electronic processes: NYCHA uses E—Builder. The authority purchased Docusign and they expect to integrate this into E-Building next week. This will substantially digitize all signatures, with some possible exceptions.
