BEC-12: Does the Procurement Administrator provide a template for the required attestation by an officer of an entity for which the SEC Form 10-Q is unavailable?

The entity fulfilling the financial and credit requirements (as specified in Article IV of the RFP Rules) must provide its most recent quarterly financial data, including a balance sheet, income statement, cash flow statement, and any accompanying notes and schedules. If available, the SEC Form 10-Q should be submitted to fulfill this requirement. If the SEC Form 10-Q is unavailable, the most recent quarterly or monthly financial data must be accompanied by an attestation by an officer of the Entity. Appendix 9 provides the requirements for this financial attestation along with sample language that would be acceptable.

The Procurement Administrator does not provide a template for this financial attestation. The Bidder is required to prepare and submit an attestation by an officer of the entity that fulfills the following requirements:

  1. the attestation is a notarized affidavit attached to the financial information provided by the entity;
  2. the attestation identifies the person making the affidavit as an officer of the entity;
  3. the officer attests that “the information contained in the financial statements fairly presents in all material respects the financial condition and results of the operations of _________________________________[name of entity]”.
