About the SCA:
The School Construction Authority (SCA) was established by the York State Legislature in December 1988 to build new public schools and manage the design, construction and renovation of capital projects in New York City’s more that 1, 200 public school buildings, half of which were constructed prior to 1949. In October of 2002, Mayor Bloomberg and Chancellor Klein announced that changes in the school governance law gave the Mayor the authority to appoint all three Trustees of the SCA, including the School’s Chancellor who
serves as the SCA Chair, and that the management of the Department of Education’s Capital Program has been consolidated under one agency, the SCA.
Making the SCA completely accountable for the Capital Program had several goals: 1) to improve of the construction process; 2) to reduce school construction costs by simplifying design standards; and 3) to increase competition among contractors.
