Important Notice for Current Contractors

Please be reminded that all OCFS contracts, whether their term remains on-going or has ended, contain a requirement in Attachment A-1 that the contractor retain certain claim documentation for the balance of the calendar year in which it was produced, and for a period of six years thereafter.

Although not required, the Office recommends that contractors retain claim records for a period of ten (10) years after the end of the calendar year in which the payment was made, as the statute of limitations for the New York False Claims Act is ten years.
