Concrete Manufacturer Sues NY Thruway over a 2018 Procurement

Times Union reports, a Binghamton, New York, concrete manufacturer filed a state court lawsuit on Friday, November 22, alleging that the New York Thruway Authority violated competitive bidding requirements by issuing specifications for two 2018 toll plaza projects that designated a particular company as the concrete supplier. The plaintiff also claims that the authority is retaliating against it for raising questions about the 2018 contracts. According to the article, an authority spokesperson called the lawsuit “meritless,” although he acknowledged that the state inspector general is reviewing the 2018 bidding process for compliance with state requirements.
