6 Impact of the SUNY Capital Program on the Construction Industry The extensive and geographically diverse network of facilities across NY provides a built-in framework for promoting NYs economic development Public work is the primary driver of the construction market Supports the vertical segment of the construction industry 94% of SUNY Capital Program contracts awarded are to New York State firms SFY disbursements of $1,157M for all four programs combined projected to have created nearly 10,000 estimated direct and indirect jobs Employs multiple construction trades 6

7 7 Recent Events Related to Capital: SUNY is at the end of its current 5 year plan SUNY faced with continuous facility renewal requirements NYSUNY 2020 Challenge Grant Program Phase I ($80M / $60M) & Phase II ($30M / $30M) NY Works Accelerated Projects – 1 st Quarter 2012/13 No new bond funding for Residential and Hospital Facilities Bond Cap Limitations Creation of the NY Works Task Force Input from Regional Economic Development Councils

8 NY Works Task Force: Creation & Mission 8 Created by the Enacted Budget Comprised of 15 members appointed by the Governor, with six members appointed with consent/advice of Legislative leaders Oversees and coordinates capital plans across all NYS agencies and authorities Included creation of an Implementation Council comprised of various relevant agency and authority commissioners

9 9 NY Works Task Force: Goals Develop a coordinated capital infrastructure plan among state agencies and authorities that is consistent with the regional economic development plans Recommend prioritization of capital infrastructure projects and allocation of resources Provide recommendations to facilitate expedited permit approvals, regulatory approvals and other such actions to advance priority projects Recommend financing options (i.e., state supported debt and federal funding) Advise state agencies and authorities on methods of procurement and contracting.

10 10 NY Works Task Force: Current Activities Implementation Councils first meeting held on June 20 th Task Force Survey data to be compiled on capital planning processes at each organization – whats being done now, how the information is used to prioritize projects, and who makes the decisions Survey to be summarized by July 16 th Task Force activities expected to support a 10 year rolling capital plan Task Force looking for initiatives that move the needle

11 11 How the SUNY Capital Program succeeds: RESULTS How the SUNY Capital Program succeeds: planning + predictable multi-year funding = RESULTS

12 12 SUNYs Next Plan: Multi-Year Request for 2013/ /19 1.Educational Facilities – Developed using Facility Master Plans 2.Hospitals – Developed using business plans 3.Residential Facilities – Developed using business plans 4.Community Colleges – Developed using Facility Master Plans, limited by each sponsors ability to pay its 50% share To the extent possible, align with goals of the Regional Economic Development Councils

13 Centralized Themes of the Ten Regional Economic Development Councils: 13 1.Leverage and Maximize Existing Resources Use existing resources to either attain public-private partnerships or to entice outside businesses and workers to the region. 2.Infrastructure Invest in and improve existing infrastructure, from roads/waterways to cellular and high speed internet. 3.Education Utilize available educational resources (K-12 and public/private higher education) to meet the needs of the larger workforce and to bring in outside businesses. 4.Reduce Export/Increase Import of New York State Workforce Take steps to create a more desirable destination for workers from outside New York State and keep New York workers here.

16 Total value of bids taken for this period is $416,122,000 Bids are 7.9% below established budgets Bids are 4.1% above median budgets 42 bids have been taken FY 2012 Bid Results since February Average number of bidders per project statewide is 7.3, a decline based primarily Downstate 16

17 Regional Results Breakdown (1) 17

18 Regional Results Breakdown (2) South (Downstate) Region: $216.2 million bids LvB -7.0%, MvB +9.9%, 11.6 bids each project (17.6 last year) Central Region: $51 million bids LvB -7.2%, MvB -1%, 5.6 bids each project West Region: $49 million bids LvB -13.1%, MvB -2.9%, 6 bids each project East Region: $99.9 million bids LvB -7.5%, MvB -2.2%, 6 bids each project 18

19 Current Period Comparison to FY 2011 Comparison of Bid Ranges, 11 to Feb12 vs. Feb12 to Current: – 11 to Feb12 Statewide: LvB -6.2%, MvB + 2.5% = Range of 8.7% – Feb12 to Current Statewide: LvB -7.9%, MvB + 4.1% = Range of 12% Why the Expansion of Bid Range? – Greater volatility in energy and commodity markets – Contractor bid strategies being experimented, refined – Sampling bias towards the more volatile Downstate construction market 19

20 What Did the Bid Results tell us? The thinning of the construction market, and its contractors, is accelerating in New York State. Some contractors are developing their competitive edge in an historic business model – more on this in a few slides… Increases in labor costs, while small, are being passed on to owners. Material costs, however, are trending down, and the net differences are notable. The Downstate cutthroat competition continues and has spread to specific trades elsewhere. Beware the desperate bidder – dont spend your savings. 20

21 Where are we going? Global manufacturing is declining in virtually every sector and location. Employment growth is statistically static before consideration of a shrinking workforce. Old Wall Street adage: Capital goes where it is welcome, and stays where it is well treated. Baltic Dry Index, 30 months 21

22 Where are we going? Commodity prices are beginning to suggest global deflation. The US Dollar has experienced strength compared to the Euro, driving commodity costs down. This may be temporary. Global currency risks force a trend to hard assets. Where do you hide? Copper Aluminum 22

23 Where are we going? Lower energy costs may not be sustainable in the medium and long term. Supply and demand still rules. A reduction energy and materials demand has influenced prices. Natural Gas Ethanol Crude Oil (WTI) 23

24 Bids for Downstates NAB New building with 8 stories, +/- 120,000 sf; Mix of labs, classrooms, offices, simulators, electrical infrastructure for the campus; $78.7 million budget Low bid $68 million; median $79.5; high $96.6, with 13 total bidders SUCF would have been the 7 th ranked bidder Low bid was $10.7 million below the SUCF budget. Why? 24

25 Was This a Good Bid? Three low bidders utilized an old-fashioned strategy to assemble their bids – self-performance, or working as a true general contractor This low bidder will be performing all concrete work with his own labor and equipment, and has captive subs for steel and mechanical trades By eliminating the additional level of markup for these trades, the contractor allows a lower bid; but also accepts the potential for significant added risk Put another way, the GC performs work for a lower cost than a specialty contractor would be willing or able to do Not every bidder has the business skill or resources to work in this manner 25

26 And This Means… From our POV, low price to do the job is always a good thing, but…. Risk on the project is almost never completely isolated. Recovery of bid savings is prudent only after a significant part of the project has shown financial success. Dont lose good efforts made to save money on a project. Saving is always a good idea! 26
