(a) If a bidder fails to meet the "good faith effort" requirement of section 43873 and, for contracts for materials, supplies, or equipment, including electronic data processing goods and services, fails to have filed prior to the date for submitting an offer or proposal with the Trustees a disabled veterans business enterprise utilization plan with the Department of General Services, such bidder shall be deemed not to be a responsive bidder for purposes of Trustees' evaluation of an award of contract and is thus ineligible for an award. No provision of these regulations, however, shall be deemed to require the Trustees to make an award.
(b) With respect to invitations for bid for the purchase of supplies or equipment pursuant to the provisions of article 3 of chapter 2 of part 2 of division 2 of the Public Contract Code or the acquisition of goods and services pursuant to the provisions of chapter 3 of part 2 of division 2 of the Public Contract Code (commencing with section 12100) where the Trustees have reserved the right to make multiple awards of a single contract award, a bidder shall be deemed responsive regarding the requirement for the making of a good faith effort if there would be compliance with the provisions of section 43873 based on award for a single contract, notwithstanding such bidder may be unable to achieve compliance with the established goals if the Trustees exercise the right to make multiple awards.
(c) The statutory goals for awards of contracts under these provisions shall apply to the overall amount expended each year by the Trustees, and need not be met by every individual contract.
