3.

conspiring to engage in any of the acts set forth in items (1) or (2) of this subsection (a).

b.

Ineligibility due to an admission of guilt.   No natural person or business entity shall be eligible to do business with the city if such natural person or business entity or any controlling person of such business entity has made in any civil or criminal proceeding an admission of guilt of any of the conduct set forth in items (1) through (3), inclusive, of subsection (a) of this section, under circumstances where such admission of guilt is a matter of record but has not resulted in criminal prosecution for such conduct.

c.

Ineligibility due to the filing of charges or indictment.   No natural person or business entity shall be eligible to do business with the city if such natural person or business entity or any controlling person of such business entity is charged with or indicted for any felony or criminal offense set forth in items (1) through (3), inclusive, of subsection (a) of this section.  Such ineligibility shall remain in effect until final adjudication is made with respect to such felony or criminal offense.

d.

Successor business entities.   Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this section, if a business entity seeking to do business with the city (“the applicant entity”) acquires or is merged with a business entity that is ineligible under this section to do business with the city (“the prohibited entity”), such applicant entity shall be eligible to do business with the city if all of the following apply: (1) no controlling person of such applicant entity has made an admission of guilt or been convicted, charged or indicted for any of the criminal conduct forming the basis of the prohibited entity’s ineligibility to do business with the city; and (2) no person who was a controlling person of the prohibited entity at the time such criminal conduct occurred is a controlling person of the applicant entity; and (3) all other eligibility requirements of this section have been met by the applicant entity and all controlling persons thereof.
