AN ACT to amend the general municipal law, in  relation  to  authorizing

  Section 1. Subdivision 16 of section 103 of the general municipal law,
as amended by chapter 497 of the laws of 2013, is  amended  to  read  as
  16.  Notwithstanding the provisions of subdivisions one, two and three
of this section, and section one hundred four of this article, any offi-
cer, board or agency of a political subdivision or of any district ther-
ein authorized to make purchases of apparatus, materials,  equipment  or
supplies, or to contract for services related to the installation, main-
tenance  or repair of apparatus, materials, equipment, and supplies, may
make such purchases, or may contract for [such] services [related to the
installation, maintenance or repair of apparatus, materials,  equipment,
and  supplies],  as  may  be  required  by such political subdivision or
district therein through the use of a contract let by the United  States
of  America  or  any  agency  thereof,  any state or any other political
subdivision or district therein if such contract was let to  the  lowest
responsible  bidder or on the basis of best value in a manner consistent
with this section and made available for use by other governmental enti-
ties; provided, however, that no political subdivision or district ther-
ein, other than a city with a population of one million or more inhabit-
ants or any district, board  or  agency  with  jurisdiction  exclusively
therein,  may  make such purchases or contract for such services through
the use of such a contract let on the basis of best value  in  a  manner
consistent  with  this  section  unless  the  political  subdivision  or
district shall first adopt a local law, rule, regulation or  resolution,
as the case may be, pursuant to subdivision one of this section, author-
izing the use of best value for awarding purchase contracts.
