Advisory Council On Procurement Lobbying
Special Notice
NOTE (April 2015): New York State's 2015-2016 enacted budget amends the NYS Lobbying Act's definition of the term municipality to include all governmental subdivisions with a population greater than 5,000. This change will amend FAQ 3.2, which can be found at: ACPL FAQ 3.2, by changing the language "population of more than fifty thousand" to "population of more than five thousand." Any questions regarding this change can be directed to OGS Legal Services at 518-474-5607.
Our Organization
In August, 2005, major changes to the Legislative Law and the State Finance Law were enacted which regulate lobbying on procurement contracts. The significant amendments included the creation of the Advisory Council on Procurement Lobbying, which issues guidelines to assist state and local governments in complying with the new law and to examine the effect of the new law. The new procurement lobbying restrictions became effective on January 1, 2006 and can be found in Sections 139-j and 139-k of the New York State Finance Law. Modifications to the Law were enacted in 2005, 2006, 2007, 2009 and 2010.

For further information regarding the Advisory Council on Procurement Lobbying, please contact OGS Legal Services at 518-474-5607.
