CURRENT 2015 NOTICES
A New and improved Two-Year Chapter 51/Executive Order 117 Vendor Certification and Disclosure of Political Contributions form is now available on the Treasury website.
The form can be found online by going to the following web link and scrolling to “VENDOR FORMS REQUIRED FOR CONTRACT AWARD.”
Please note that the Information and Instructions form (I&I) and the C.51/EO117 Certification form (C.51) are now in the same PDF link with the Instructions first.
One of the key differences in the new form is it is no longer necessary to submit an Ownership Disclosure form along with the C.51 form which was needed with the old version. The ownership information required for Chapter 51 purposes is now incorporated into the new form.
Another key change is the time period of contribution disclosures has been changed to include up to 5 ½ years (for certain contributions) whereas the old version requested the preceding 18 months (for certain contributions). The certification options have been increased from a choice of three (3) to a choice of four (4). As was the case with the old version, by checking BOX A the authorized representative completing the form is certifying on behalf of the business entity and all individuals and/or entities whose contributions are attributable to the business entity.
