Public Authorities (PBA) CHAPTER 43-A, ARTICLE 8, TITLE 28-B
§ 2656. Contracts. 1. Construction contracts let by the authority
shall be in conformity with the applicable provisions of section one
hundred thirty-five of the state finance law.

2. The authority may, in its discretion, assign contracts for
supervision and coordination to the successful bidder for any
subdivision of work for which the authority receives bids. Any
construction contract awarded by the authority shall contain such other
terms and conditions as the authority may deem desirable. The authority
shall not award any construction contract except to the lowest bidder
who, in its opinion, is qualified to perform the work required and who
is responsible and reliable. The authority may, however, reject any or
all bids or waive any informality in a bid if it believes that the
public interest will be promoted thereby. The authority may reject any
bid, if, in its judgment, the business and technical organization,
plant, resources, financial standing, or experience of the bidder
justifies such rejection in view of the work to be performed.

3. Each contract to which the authority is a party including, but not
limited to, any contract, lease, grant, bond, covenant, or other debt
agreement entered into directly or indirectly by the authority financing
in whole or in part, the construction, demolition, reconstruction,
excavation, rehabilitation, repair, renovation or alteration of a
building or an improvement to property shall require that employers,
contractors and sub-contractors shall comply with the provisions of
section two hundred twenty of the labor law.

4. For the purposes of article fifteen-A of the executive law only,
the authority shall be deemed a state agency as that term is used in
such article, and all contracts for procurement, design, construction,
services and materials shall be deemed state contracts within the
meaning of that term as set forth in such article;
