State law requires that the award of state contracts be made to responsible vendors. Before an award is made to a nonprofit entity, a for-profit entity, a private college or university or a public entity not exempted by the Office of the State Comptroller, NYSED must make an affirmative responsibility determination.

The factors to be considered include: legal authority to do business in New York State; integrity; capacity- both organizational and financial; and previous performance.

Before an award of $100,000 or greater can be made to a covered entity, the entity will be required to complete and submit a Vendor Responsibility Questionnaire. School districts, Charter Schools, BOCES, public colleges and universities, public libraries, and the Research Foundation for SUNY and CUNY are some of the exempt entities.
