Single Source Procurement: WIC Banking Services

Pursuant to New York State Finance Law § 163.10(b), The New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) is presenting the following summary of relevant circumstances, and material and substantial reasons why a competitive procurement was not feasible. The 5-year contract C029122 with KeyBank, N.A., for banking services of WIC checks, was procured with a competitive Request for Proposal (RFP) and is set to expire on 3/31/19. It is imperative that KeyBank continue to provide these services through December 31, 2019 to ensure that all WIC checks that have already been issued to participants are able to be processed and that vendors are reimbursed for the WIC foods they provide. A nine-month extension has been granted to ensure that all vendors will be able to cash redeemed checks and DOH is able to reconcile all banking issues related to the account before it is closed.
