NEW YORK STATE LOBBYING LAW OF 2005
Chapter 1 of the Laws of 2005, as amended by Chapter 596 of the Laws of 2005 (collectively referred to as the “Lobbying Law”) makes major changes to the development of procurement contracts with government entities, including the Authority. The Lobbying Law amends the New York State Legislative Law and the New York State Finance Law relative to lobbying and/or other contacts with government agencies on behalf of bidders or proposers (collectively referred to as “offerers”) concerning government procurement initiatives. Specifically, the Lobbying Law created two new sections in the State Finance Law (the “New State Finance Law”): Section 139-j, which restricts the types of “contacts” that offerers may make to a governmental entity during the procurement process; and Section 139-k, which requires that offerers disclose prior findings of non-responsibility based either upon violations of Section 139-j of the State Finance Law or for having provided false or incomplete information to a governmental entity.
APPENDIX L, COMPLIANCE WITH NEW YORK STATE FINANCE LAW SECTIONS 139-j AND 139-k, Disclosure of Prior Non-Responsibility Determinations Form and Bidder’s/Proposer’s Affirmation and Certification, is attached and made part of this solicitation package in compliance with the requirements of the New State Finance Law. For additional information, all offerers are urged to contact the New York State Office of General Services at (518) 474-5607, or via their website at:
