Application content. The preliminary and final applications shall be in any format designated by the commissioner, including electronic format.

At the department’s sole discretion, an applicant may be required to furnish certified statements made by the applicant’s architect or engineer or both.

(c)

Compliance. The application shall also state that the applicant agrees to comply with and be subject to the rules issued from time to time by the department to secure compliance with all applicable city, state and federal laws or which implement mayoral directives and executive orders designed to ensure equal employment opportunity. If required by local law or rule as described in § 489-KKKKKK (Participation of minority and women-owned business enterprises)section four hundred eighty-nine-kkkkkk of this title, such application shall also state that the applicant agrees to comply with the program established thereby to ensure meaningful participation of minority and women-owned business enterprises in construction work for which the applicant receives benefits.

(e)

Electronic filing of application. The commissioner may, by rule, require any application for benefits under this title to be submitted electronically in such form and manner as the commissioner may determine.
