Capstone – Project

Development of a New Preferred Source Service Offering

A Collaboration Between

Engagement Synopsis

NYSID recently commissioned the Rockefeller Institute of Government, a public policy think tank that conducts cutting-edge, nonpartisan research and policy analysis, to measure the fiscal and social value NYSID created for New York State and its taxpayers through the facilitation of the Preferred Source Program. One of the key findings in the report was the risk automation could pose for NYSID contracts over the course of the next two decades; an estimated 75% of NYSIDÔÇÖs workforce faces elimination due to automation. In light of this, the proposed scope for this project would be for students to assess the skill sets of the population that we serve, and help develop a proposal for what could be our next preferred source offering.
