N.J. Admin. Code § 7:22-4.39 - Debarment

Current through Register Vol. 54, No. 7, April 4, 2022

(a) No recipient shall enter into a contract for work on environmental infrastructure facilities with any person debarred, suspended or disqualified from Department contracting pursuant to N.J.A.C. 7:1D-2.
(b) Recipients shall insert in every contract for work on a project a clause stating that the contractor may be debarred, suspended or disqualified from contracting on any project financially assisted by the State or the Department if the contractor commits any of the acts listed in 7:1D-2.2.
(c) The recipient, prior to acceptance of Trust loan moneys, shall certify that no contractor or subcontractor is included on the State Treasurer's list of debarred, suspended and disqualified bidders as a result of action by a State agency in addition to that of the Department of Environmental Protection. If Trust loan moneys are used for disbursement to a debarred firm, the Trust reserves the right to immediately terminate (7:22-4.44 ) the Trust loan and/or take such other action pursuant to N.J.A.C. 7:1D-2 as is appropriate.
(d) Whenever a bidder is debarred, suspended or disqualified from Department contracting pursuant to N.J.A.C. 7:1D-2, the recipient may take into account the loss of Trust loan moneys under these regulations which result from awarding a contract to such bidder, in determining whether such bidder is the lowest responsive and responsible bidder pursuant to law, and the recipient may advise prospective bidders that these procedures shall be followed.
(e) Any person included on the State Treasurer's list as a result of action by a State agency, who is or may become a bidder on any contract which is or shall be funded by a Trust loan under this subchapter, may present information to the Trust why this section should not apply to such person. If the Trust determines that it is essential to the public interest and files a finding thereof with the New Jersey Attorney General, the Trust may grant an exception from the application of this section with respect to a particular contract, in keeping with 7:1D-2.9. In the alternative, the Trust may suspend or debar any such person, or take such action as may be appropriate, pursuant to N.J.A.C. 7:1D-2.
