[HISTORY: Adopted by the Town Board of the Town of Canandaigua as indicted in article histories. Amendments noted where applicable.]
[Adopted 3-20-2017 by L.L. No. 3-2017]
This article shall be known as the "Town of Canandaigua Best Value Contract Award Law."
The Town Board of the Town of Canandaigua desires to benefit from efficiencies to be gained through changes by New York State to the public contracting provisions of the General Municipal Law. Such statutory changes permit the Town of Canandaigua to adopt a local law that will authorize the use of a "best value" analysis in the context of awarding procurement contracts subject to New York State's municipal bidding requirements.
In accordance with New York State General Municipal Law § 103, the Town of Canandaigua is hereby authorized to use best value, as that term is defined in New York State Finance Law § 163, as the basis for awarding a purchase contract or purchase contracts, including a contract or contracts for service work.
The Town Supervisor shall develop procedures that will govern the award of contracts on the basis of best value. These procedures shall be included in the Town of Canandaigua Procurement Policy and reviewed annually by the Town Board in conjunction with its annual review and approval of the Town of Canandaigua's Procurement Policy.
