By execution of a contract with the Owner, CMAR certifies to Owner that it is not a listed company under any of those Texas Government Code provisions. By submitting a proposal, CMAR voluntarily and knowingly acknowledges and agrees that any resulting contract shall be null and void should facts arise leading the Owner to believe that the CMAR was a listed company at the time of this procurement.

CERTIFICATE OF INTERESTED PARTIES: Effective January 1, 2016, Texas governmental entities must comply with the “Disclosure of Interested Parties” mandated by Texas HB 1295, as implemented by the Texas Ethics Commission. Briefly stated, all contracts requiring an action or vote by the governing body of the entity or agency before the contract may be signed (regardless of the dollar amount) or has a value of at least $1 million will require the on-line completion of Form 1295 “Certificate of Interested Parties,” per Texas Government Code § 2252.908. Form 1295 is also required for any and all contract amendments, extensions or renewals made after January 1, 2016.
