Notwithstanding any other provision with respect to purchase contracts by competitive or purchase proposals, and pursuant to the provisions of General Municipal Law § 103, Subdivision 1, the Town of Wales may award such purchase contracts and proposals to a responsive and responsible bidder or proposer on the basis of "best value."
The definition for "best value" as used herein shall be in accord with the definition set forth in New York State Finance Law § 163, Subdivision 1j, now enacted or hereafter amended, which definition identifies the term "best value" to mean the basis for awarding contracts for purchase to the offerer which optimizes equality, cost and efficiency among responsive and responsible offerers. Such basis shall reflect, wherever possible, objective and quantifiable analysis.
