5.6. If a contractor hires a lobbyist after the contractor submits its proposal, what are the contractor’s obligations under the State Finance Law provisions? (Last Updated: 6/8/2006)
The obligations of the contractor with regard to complying with the requirements of §§ 139-j and 139-k of the State Finance Law in this situation do not change simply because the contractor hires a lobbyist. Both the contractor and the lobbyist, who would have to meet additional obligations pursuant to the Lobbying Act, would have to comply with §§ 139-j and 139-k of the State Finance Law.
