SUNY Polytechnic on Monday released yet another statement responding to news reports of a focused investigation on the institution’s leader, Alain Kaloyeros, insisting the contracting process for the Buffalo Billion economic development program was performed in a “transparent process.”

“As a public SUNY institution, all funding and contracts to SUNY Poly and its expenditures are subject to the same approvals, rules, regulations, and oversight as any other New York government agency. This includes public and transparent review and oversight by all appropriate state agencies including the New York State Division of the Budget, Empire State Development, the State University of New York, the New York State Comptroller, and the Attorney General,” SUNY Poly spokesman Jerry Gretzinger said in the statement.

In a bullet-pointed “statement of facts,” Gretzinger used the word “transparent” three times to describe its contracting and request for proposal procedures, using media reports to bolster its case.

“The SUNY Poly economic innovation model is open, transparent, and successful, as demonstrated by the hundreds of media reports on its structure, process, and results, including the following,” Gretzinger said, providing links to stories written by the non-profit Investigative Post which, along with Gannett, has sued the state for the release of documents pertaining to the Buffalo Billion program.

And as Kaloyeros, according to The Daily News this morning, comes under scrutiny by U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara, Gretzinger said that as a state employee, he is “subject to and in compliance with all state rules and oversight, including SUNY and JCOPE.”

Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who has touted the state’s investment of resources into the high-tech sector in western New York, reiterated on Sunday he was unaware of any investigation into the program.
