These manufacturers and products must also be listed on current New York State Office of General Services, NYC or DOE contracts. While your firm's status as a pre-qualified vendor with the SCA means that you can do business with the Authority, it is important to note that the manufacturers and products represented by you are subject to the additional requirements described in this paragraph.
