Pursuant to State Finance Law sections 139-j and 139-k, this solicitation includes and imposes certain restrictions on communications between OGS D&C and a bidder during the procurement process. A 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 OGS D&C and 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 section 139-j(3)(a). Designated staff are Frank Peris in the Bureau of Contract Awards, telephone (518) 474-0203, fax (518) 473-7862 and John Lewyckyj, Director of Contract Administration, telephone (518) 474-0201, fax (518) 486-1650. OGS D&C employees are also required to obtain certain information when contacted during the restricted period and make a determination of the responsibility of the bidder pursuant to these two statutes. Certain findings of non-responsibility can result in rejection for contract award and in the event of two findings within a four year period, the bidder is debarred from obtaining governmental Procurement Contracts. Bidders responding to this Advertisement must familiarize themselves with the new Legislative and State Finance Law requirements and will be expected to affirm that they understand and agree to comply on the bid form. Further information about these requirements can be found within the project manual or at http://www.ogs.state.ny.us and go to About OGS, Rules Regulations and Policy, Advisory Council on Procurement Lobbying.
As a condition of award, within 48 hours of receipt of the proposed contract agreement from the State, the low bidder shall return the contract agreement to the State, properly executed, along with the bonds if required by said agreement. Low bidders who cannot meet these provisions may be subject to disqualification and forfeiture of the bid security.
The State intends to expedite award of this contract and the contractor shall be prepared to proceed with the work accordingly. Bidders are warned that time is of the essence of the contract and completion of the work must be within 120 days after the agreement is approved by the Comptroller. Due to the tightness of the construction schedule, bidders should consider the necessity for an increased work force and shift operations.
