NYS Freedom of Information Law (FOIL) All submissions for the Museum’s consideration will be held in confidence pending final execution of the contract(s). However, fully executed contracts are subject to the New York State Freedom of Information Law (FOIL), codified at Public Officers Law Article 6. Therefore, if a Proposer believes that any information in its submission constitutes a trade secret or is otherwise information which if disclosed would cause substantial injury to the competitive position of the Proposer’s enterprise and the Proposer wishes such information to be withheld if requested pursuant to FOIL, the Proposer shall submit with its Proposal a separate letter addressed to the primary contact referenced in this RFP, specifically identifying the page number(s), line(s) or other appropriate designation(s) containing such information, Page 8 of 16
    • Issue Date: May 25 ,2010 RFP for the Construction and the Operation of Telecommunications Cell Tower(s) at the Suffolk County Vanderbilt Museum and the Licensing of Associated Land explaining in detail why such information is a trade secret or is other information which if disclosed would cause substantial injury to the competitive position of the Proposer’s enterprise, and formally requesting that such information be kept confidential. Failure by a Proposer to submit such a letter with its submission will constitute a waiver by the Respondent of any interest in seeking exemption of this information under Article 6 of the Public Officers’ Law relating to protection of trade secrets. The proprietary nature of the information designated confidential by the Proposer may be subject to disclosure if it is requested and the Museum deems it subject to disclosure or if ordered by a court of competent jurisdiction. A request that an entire Proposal be kept confidential may not be considered reasonable since a submission cannot reasonably consist of all data exempt from FOIL.

Mr. Vanderbilt traveled extensively throughout the world collecting artifacts to develop his own personal museum at Eagles Nest. The site is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. In his last will and testament, Mr. Vanderbilt bequeathed his estate in Centerport, together with its real property, furnishings, exhibits, and works of art, artifacts, memorabilia and certain moneys for its maintenance either to the State of New York, County of Suffolk or Town of Huntington. Suffolk County accepted the bequest in accordance with the terms of the agreement dated August 3, 1949. The Museum, opened in 1950, consists of 17,000 artifacts housed in a Spanish revival style mansion with a memorial wing constructed in 1936 to commemorate Mr. Vanderbilt’s only son who died in 1933 from an automobile accident, a marine museum, and several outbuildings including a seaplane hangar, garage, powerhouse and “caretaker’s cottage”. The 238-seat planetarium erected in 1971 features a 60-foot diameter domed sky theatre with a central star projector supplemented by dozens of perimeter slide projectors and a video projector. The Museum’s collections and public programs encompass the arts, marine and other sciences and history. The Museum is charted as an educational institution by the New York State Board of Regents and is accredited as a museum by the American Association of Museums. The property is owned by Suffolk County, which is responsible for capital projects, and is operated by a not-for-profit 501 (c) (3) organization, with a Board of Trustees appointed by the Suffolk County Legislature. The staff consists of professional, support, seasonal, grounds, maintenance and security personnel. Volunteers assist in a wide range of activities. End of Text for Section III Page 13 of 16
