PEBB in evaluating the Proposer’s record of integrity may consider, among other things, whether the Proposer has previous criminal convictions for offenses related to obtaining or attempting to obtain a contract or subcontract or in connection with the Proposer’s performance of a contract or subcontract. PEBB shall document the Proposer’s record of integrity if PEBB finds under this paragraph that the Proposer is not responsible.
(d)Is legally qualified to contract with PEBB.
