All contracts for construction shall be let by the authority in conformity with the
applicable provisions of section one hundred thirty-five of the state finance law and shall be let in accordance with the provisions of state law pertaining to prevailing
wages, labor standards and working hours. In the case of industrial projects, whenever the authority determines that trade
secrets or other confidential information about the prospective project occupant's
business operations, products, processes or designs would be revealed by public bidding,
the requirements of section one hundred thirty-five of the state finance law with respect to public bidding may be waived. In such event, separate specifications shall be prepared for, and separate and independent
contracts shall be entered into, for the following three subdivisions of work to be
performed: (a) plumbing and gas fitting; (b) steam heating, hot water heating, ventilating
and air conditioning apparatus; and (c) electric wiring and standard illuminating
fixtures. The authority may, in its discretion, assign contracts for supervision and coordination
to the successful bidder for any subdivision of work for which the authority receives
bids. The authority shall not award any construction contract except to the lowest bidder
who, in its opinion, is qualified to perform the work required and who is responsible
and reliable. The authority may, however, reject any or all bids or waive any informality in a
bid if it believes that the public interest will be promoted thereby. The authority may reject any bid if, in its judgment, the business and technical
organization, plant, resources, financial standing, or experience of the bidder justifies
such rejection in view of the work to be performed.
