to assist campuses in the execution of contracts/purchase orders for construction
services. The purpose of this document is to identify and clarify differences from
the general procurement procedures found in “Purchasing and Contracting”
procedure (Procedure Item #7553). Funding for projects under this Procedure
can come from monies either appropriated to SUNY or monies appropriated to the Construction
Campus Let - Campus managed construction projects funded by capital appropriated
to the Fund
Campus Funded - Campus managed construction projects funded by SUNY appropriations
or other funds including those from the Foundation, Research Foundation, Auxiliary
Service Corporation, Alumni Association, Income Fund Reimbursable (IFR) accounts or
Consultant - the Architect, Engineer, Landscape Architect, Surveyor or other designated
entity named by the University to design and/or inspect and/or generally administer

PLA Project Labor Agreement - A pre-hire collective bargaining agreement between
a contractor and a bona fide building and construction trade labor organization establishing
the labor organization as the collective bargaining representative for all persons
who will perform work on a public work project, and which provides that only contractors
and subcontractors who sign a pre-negotiated agreement with the labor organization
can perform project work.
This procedure addresses projects in two categories:
Contracts up to $20,000 (discretionary procurements) and
Contracts exceeding $20,000 (formal procurements, i.e. sealed bids).
All construction contracts must specify the term, contract amount and clearly
identify the scope of work. Contracts exceeding $20,000 are must be awarded to the
lowest responsible bidder through public letting, commonly referred to as a sealed
Health and Safety Requirements
Construction/ alteration projects must bear the seal of a licensed professional
and be designed by a registered Architect, Professional Engineer or Registered Landscape
Architect. All design work must be under the direct supervision of Architect, Professional
Engineer or Registered Landscape Architect
This requirement applies to projects that affect public or structural safety,
regardless of the dollar amount. It does not however apply to (1) farm buildings,
including barns, sheds, poultry houses and other buildings used directly and solely
for agricultural purposes; (2) residence buildings of gross area of fifteen hundred
square feet or less, not including garages, carports, porches, cellars or uninhabitable
basements or attics; or (3) alterations which do not affect the structural safety
or public safety costing ten thousand dollars or less for any building within the
city of New York and twenty thousand dollars or less for any building or structure
outside the city of New York. However, regardless of legal requirement, all contract
documents should generally bear the seal of a licensed professional.
Design work can be accomplished by a licensed professional on campus staff or
through a consultant services agreement.
All construction/renovation work shall comply with the New York State Uniform
Fire Prevention and Building Code.
Failure by responsible campus officials to fully carry out all necessary project
reviews for Code compliance might expose personnel to personal liability.
Minority and Women Owned Business Enterprise (MWBE) Utilization:
It is the University's policy to take affirmative action to ensure that
New York State certified minority and women owned business enterprises are given the
opportunity to participate in University construction contracts at competitive prices.
NYS Executive Law article 15A requires MWBE goals be incorporated on all construction
projects with an estimated value of $100,000 or more.
To ensure compliance with NYS Executive Law Article 15A, refer to requirements
outlined in SUNY Procedure
7557 (Participation by Minority Group Members and Women (MWBEs) with Respect to
State University of New York Contracts).
Service Disabled Veteran Owned Business Enterprise (SDVOB) Utilization
Consistent with the State University of New York (SUNY)’s commitment to,
and in accordance with, Article 17-B of the New York State Executive Law, contractors
are required to ensure that good faith efforts are made to include meaningful participation
by Service Disabled Veteran-Owned Businesses.
Requirements for compliance to NYS Executive Law Article 17-B are outlined in the
procedure “Participation by Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Business (SDVOBs)
with Respect to State University of New York Contracts” Procedure Item #7564).

For Campus Funded contracts advertise in a local newspaper of general circulation
Contact a reasonable number of local contractors (a minimum of 5. Describe
the project to be bid and invite the contractors to submit a bid proposal on the work.
It is recommended that campuses list the project with at least one Local Builder's
Exchange or Plan House.
Issuance of an Addenda
A written Addendum must be issued by the campus if the campus determines
the bid documents to be vague, incorrect, incomplete or inconsistent with its procurement
objectives, or if the campus determines that information must be added or changed.
The Addendum must be forwarded to all contractors who obtained copies of the Bidding
Documents from the campus, and to all locations where documents were sent for review
by prospective bidders. If sufficient bid time does not remain to incorporate each
Addendum into the bid, the Addendum should also extend the bid time to allow for the
same. Sequentially number and date each Addendum issued. Campuses must receive written
acknowledgment from each contractor of receipt of each addendum.
Questions that do not require an addendum to the bidding documents are to
be documented in a Question and Answer (Q&A) document. This Q&A document must
be forwarded to all contractors who obtained copies of the Bidding Documents from
the campus, and to all locations where documents were sent for review by prospective
On the designated day, time and place, all bids received up until that time
shall be publicly opened and read aloud in the presence of a campus staff witness.
When opening the bids the contractor's name, bid amount, and form of Bid Security
(certified check or a bid bond using Form
7554-10), or lack thereof, shall be read aloud. Bids cannot be withdrawn after
the designated day and time of the deadline for submission of bids.
Any bid received at the specified location after the time specified will be
considered a late Bid. A late Bid shall not be considered for award unless: (i) no
timely Bids meeting the requirements of the Bid Documents are received or, (ii) in
the case of a multiple award, an insufficient number of timely Bids were received
to satisfy the multiple awards; and acceptance of the late Bid is in the best interests
of the Campus. Delays in United States mail deliveries or any other means of transmittal,
including couriers or agents of SUNY or the Campus, shall not excuse late Bid submissions.
Similar types of delays, including but not limited to, bad weather, or security procedures
for parking and building admittance, shall not excuse late Bid submissions. Determinations
relative to Bid timeliness shall be at the sole discretion of the Campus President
or his/her designee.
Proposals that contain minor irregularities, such as those submitted without
a proper Bid Security, or in the wrong form, or executed improperly, shall be considered
informal. Informal proposals may be considered in selecting a low bidder where the
public interest will be promoted thereby. Consultation with University Counsel is
strongly recommended prior to accepting any informal bid.
Summarize the bids received on the Bid Tabulation (Form
Publish the bid results in the NYSCR.
Review the bids to determine if the bids are responsive. Forward a letter
of intent (Form 7554-14)
to the lowest responsive bidder which lists all documentation required from the contractor
prior to contract award.
Have the contractor obtain a Labor & Material Bond and Performance Bond
(unless the Performance Bond is waived, reference Section V, Part d Labor and Materials
Bonds may not be waived). Bonds are required to be acknowledged by a notary and to
be accompanied by a Financial Statement for the Surety and Power of Attorney.
Obtain proof of insurance on Form
7554-12. The insurance shall be in the amounts and types required in the specification,
naming the State of New York, the State University of New York, as additional insured,
with the campus designated as the Certificate Holder. The Insurance Policy expiration
dates must be current and cover the period within which the work will take place.

Procurement Checklist (Form
7554-00) including Procurement Lobbying Forms, Omnibus Procurement Act Forms,
MWBE and SDVOB Forms, and Vendor Responsibility Questionnaire (see Form
7554-06, Section 8 for details on how to complete the questionnaire).

use OSC’s Vend Rep System)
to ensure the contractor is responsible. For more information on Vendor Responsibility
please see the OSC
Guide to Financial Operations.
Authorization to Proceed: Contract work shall not begin until all necessary
signatures are obtained. Authorizing the start of work before all signatures are obtained
is beyond the scope of a State employee’s authority, and the employee may be
held personally liable.
Have three copies of the Agreement (Form
7554-09) signed by the contractor, with Notary Acknowledgement. Ensure that Exhibit
A, Exhibit A1, and the scope of work are incorporated into the contract. The campus
will retain two copies of the agreement (one at the Business Office and one at the
Facilities Office) and send one copy to the contractor.
Return the Bid Securities to all bidders as outlined in Section 6 (IB3) of
the Information to Bidders
in the Project Manual. Notify each bidder, in writing, of the bid results.
Retain or return the deposits on plans and specifications in accordance with
State Finance Law Article 9 §143.
Return the full deposit to the successful bidder.
For unsuccessful bidders:
The campus retains all deposits less than $50
For deposits greater than $50, return the deposit for one set of plans
to the bidder within 30 days.
If for any reason, the apparent low bidder cannot obtain the required bonds
or insurance, or informs you in writing that its bid was in error, or that it is unable
to meet the obligations of the contract, such bid may be rejected and the contract
awarded to the next lowest bidder. This situation must be documented and maintained
in the procurement record. Consultation with University Counsel is recommended under
Tie Bids: If a tie bid should occur, assemble the affected contractors.
Using the method defined in the Information for Bidders (Form
75540-6, Section 5) determine the successful bidder.
Fewer than three bids: When fewer than three bids are received on for a
contract exceeding $250,000 the campus must demonstrate that all reasonable steps
were taken to ensure that the opportunity for competitive bidding was maintained and
reasonableness of price was established. When fewer than three bids are received the
following steps must occur and be documented in the procurement record.
Conduct an independent review of the Invitation for Bid and determine
if it contained any restrictive, unclear, and/or ambiguous content which may have
Determine if sufficient time was provided to enable proper preparation
and submission of bids.
Determine if any other reason may have inhibited responses, including
contacting contractors who did not submit bids to determine their reasons for not
If any of the above conditions exist, or if there is any other irregularity,
the solicitation shall be re-advertised and the process repeated.
If none of the above conditions exist, the project may be awarded subject
to the Campus President, or designees, approval.
Campus Funded contracts are subject to the Wicks Law, which requires preparation
of four (4) separate specifications (plumbing, electrical, mechanical and all else).
Each of the specifications is to be competitively bid and awarded lowest responsible
bidder. The threshold for Wicks Law compliance is determined by a campus' geographical
location as follows .
$3 million for campuses in counties of the Bronx, Kings, New York, Queens,
and Richmond (HSC @ Brooklyn, Maritime and Optometry)
$1.5 million for campuses in the counties of Nassau, Suffolk and Westchester
(Farmingdale, Old Westbury, Purchase and Stony Brook)
$500,000 for all other counties within the state (all other state-operated
Campus funded projects for values under the applicable thresholds noted above
are subject to the Wicks Law requirements stated below.
The prime bidder must submit with its bid a separate sealed list that names
each subcontractor that the bidder will use to perform work on the contract, and the
agreed upon amount to be paid to each for the different trades.
The list of subcontractors and the amount they will each be paid should be
included with the Procurement Record. All non-selected bidders’ sealed envelopes
are to be returned to the bidders.
Campuses may seek an exemption from the requirements of Wicks Law for Campus
Let contracts. The campus is required to obtain a letter from the Fund verifying this
exemption and maintain it in the Procurement Record.
Campuses may also waive Wicks law compliance if enters into a Project Labor
Agreement (PLA). The intention to use a PLA must be specified in campus solicitation
document (RFP, IFB etc.) and cost and other criteria must be satisfied.
A campus use of a PLA must be done in consultation and with prior review and
approval by its Campus Counsel

published at least 15 business days in advance of the date on which a bid or proposal
is due, unless a shorter period is specifically authorized by law. The New York State
Contract Reporter accepts only online submissions through its web site.
If the contract is estimated to be under the advertisement requirement and the
low bid is over that threshold all bids must be rejected and the project re-advertised.
A waiver of competitive solicitation and prior publication in the Contract
Reporter is allowed provided adequate documentation is provided to support the declaration
that advertisement in the NYSCR is not feasible and reasonableness of prices is established.
The declaration shall be signed by the campus President, or President’s designee
and sent to OSC for approval. Consultation with University Counsel is strongly recommended
in this situation.

If the campus deems it appropriate, a Performance Bond may be waived on a project
when there is to be only one (1) payment made to the contractor. If the Performance
Bond is waived, payment shall occur only after successful completion of the work and
acceptance by the campus.
If a Performance Bond is waived, retainage may be increased to 20%. All potential
bidders must be notified prior to submission of bids if the Performance Bond is waived

$50,000 fax a copy of the signed emergency declaration to OSC to request an exemption
from advertisement in the NYSCR. The text of the declaration must formally request
If feasible contact at least three contractors. Document for the procurement
record the process used to select the contractor.
Reasonableness of price must be established by obtaining a minimum of three
(3) verbal or written quotes. In soliciting verbal quotes, the potential contractors
must be informed of the contractual obligations required of them if their proposal
is accepted. If the scope of the emergency work can be reasonably quantified, a lump
sum quote should be requested. If the scope of the emergency work cannot be reasonably
quantified, a cost plus fixed fee quote should be requested.
Authorize the contractor to proceed with the work. Verbal authorization must
be followed by written authorization.
