New York City School Construction Authority

The New York City School Construction Authority (SCA) manages the design, construction and renovation of school facilities in New York City.[1]

The Authority is overseen by a three-member Board of Trustees appointed by the Mayor.[1] Current SCA trustees are Carmen FariƱa (who also serves a Chancellor of the city's Department of Education), Curtis A. Harris and Emily Youssouf.

History

The School Construction Authority was created in 1988 as a New York State public-benefit corporation by the New York State Legislature, which removed control of capital projects from the city's Board of Education in an effort to end corruption.[2][3]
