Current through Register Vol. 54, No. 7, April 4, 2022
subchapter establishes procedures for providing opportunities for socially and
economically disadvantaged ("SED") contractors and vendors to supply materials
and services under State financed construction contracts for environmental
infrastructure facilities. To implement the policies established in
, 40:11A-41 et seq., and
52:32-17 et seq., this subchapter applies to environmental infrastructure
projects receiving financial assistance from the Department and the Trust
pursuant to N.J.A.C. 7:22-3, 4 and 6 and 7:22A-6 and 7. Under the provisions of
N.J.A.C. 7:22-3, 4 and 6 and 7:22A-6 and 7, the Department and the Trust
require recipients of Trust and Fund loans and other assistance to establish
such programs for socially and economically disadvantaged small business
concerns, to designate a project compliance officer, and to submit to the
Department and Trust procurement plans for implementing the SED program. In
4.17(a)24, 6.17(a)24 and 7:22A-2.4(a) provide that a goal of not less than 10
percent be established for the award of contracts to small business concerns
owned and controlled by one or more socially and economically disadvantaged
individuals. The goal of 10 percent applies to the total amount of all
contracts for building, materials and equipment, or services (including
planning, design and building related activities) for a construction project.
Where a local government unit has a SED participation goal which exceeds 10
percent of the total amount of all contracts, the local government unit must
comply with both the Department's rules and the local minority and women-owned
subchapter also establishes the standards and procedures that will apply to the
contracting agencies of grant or loan recipients in the awarding and making of
contracts under their SED programs.
