All contracts or amendments between the State of New York and any contractor (whether individual, partnership, or corporate) must have proper acknowledgment of the contractor's signature affixed thereto. Refer to attachment for examples of acknowledgments.
The requirement for acknowledgment applies to the signature of the contractor with whom the State is doing business. It is not necessary that the signature of the State official executing the agreement be acknowledged.
Any contracts or amendments thereto which do not contain the proper form of acknowledgment will be returned to the contracting agency.
