Statement from ABC, Empire State
Chapter Director of Government Affairs Joshua Reap
applaud the efforts of New York State to modernize and provide much needed
improvements to the State Fairgrounds, and certainly support continued
investments that can spur further economic benefits. Having said that, and in
light of the investigation into the awarding of contracts at the Solar City
facility in Buffalo, we hope that New York State and relevant agencies do
everything in their power to provide a transparent bidding process.
Unfortunately, based on documents we have reviewed, it looks like not much has
changed as it’s clear that a similar bidding approach to the one being used in
the ‘Buffalo Billion’ is being considered for this project.
also encourage New York State to avoid a Project Labor Agreement (PLA). PLA’s
are restrictive measures that would exclude the vast majority of local workers
and contractors from bidding the work and preventing the best value and
maximization of tax dollars. They are also proven to unfairly discriminate
again Minority & Women Owned Businesses (MWBE).
academic studies have shown projects with government mandated Project Labor
Agreements cost, on average, 12-18% higher than those done without. These added
costs are often attributed to restricted competition. This comes as contractors
are forced to adhere to antiquated jurisdictional work rules that prevent
efficiencies of scale, and cannot bring many of their own employees on the job.
As a result, merit shop contractors will not bid the work, limiting the pool of
bidders and driving up costs.”
About Associated Builders & Contractors, Empire

projects should be awarded on merit to the most qualified and responsible low
bidders. The Empire State Chapter represents over 400 members in the
