Cattaraugus County Local Law 12-2012 as amended by Local Law 5-2015 requires that the County provide a copy of the Cattaraugus County Vendor Responsibility Form to the low bidder. The low bidder will have 5 business days to return the completed form unless the form was mailed by the county to the vendor, in which case they will have 10 business days from the date of the mailing to return the form. Failure by the low bidder to submit the form within the above time frame will lead to the automatic rejection of their bid. The contractor must also ensure that all subcontractors who contract to work on the Project for consideration in the amount of $35,000 or greater, complete this form and submit it to the County for approval within 5 days of the preconstruction meeting. The contractor must also submit, in writing, a request for waiver for any subcontractors whose contract is for less than $35,000. Failure to do so may lead to the rejection of the subcontractor at the County’s discretion.
Currently the Commissioner of Public Works has approved the CCA-2 (New York State Vendor Responsibility Questionnaire For-Profit Construction) with attachments A, B, and C to serve as the Cattaraugus County Vendor Responsibility Form.
