How does NYSBA decide who gets a contract?
NYSBA selects the bidder with lowest price to the Authority in almost all cases. Variations are allowed only in certain cases and must be properly justified based on superior service or value to the Authority.
Depending on the contract, professional services or specialized work may require pre-qualification in order to establish proper credentials and the ability to complete the work required.
Tolls today are actually lower, in real dollars, than they were in 1933 when the Authority began operations.
