Procurement Contacts And Offerer Responsibility. Pursuant to New York State Finance Law §§139-j and 139-k, this request for proposals (“RFP”) includes and imposes certain restrictions on communication between a Governmental Entity (APDC and any other government entity) and an Offerer/Bidder during the procurement process. An Offerer/Bidder is restricted from making contacts from the earliest notice of intent to solicit offers through final award and approval of the Procurement Contract by the APDC and, if applicable, Office of the State Comptroller (“restricted period”) to other than designated staff unless it is a contact that is included among certain statutory exceptions set forth in State Finance Law §139-j (3) (a). The designated staff member for this RFP is, Rich Hendrick, APDC General Manager. Governmental Entity employees are also required to obtain certain information when contacted during the restricted period and make a determination of the responsibility of the Offerer/bidder pursuant to these two statutes. Certain findings of non-responsibility can result in rejection for a contract award and in the event of two findings within a four year period, the Offerer/Bidder is debarred from obtaining governmental Procurement Contracts.
MWBE Participation. It is the policy of the APDC to encourage minority and women-owned business enterprise participation in this project by contractors, subcontractors and suppliers, and all bidders are expected to cooperate in implementing this policy.
