(1) "State agency" has the meaning defined in section 1.60 of the Revised Code.
(2) "State contract" means any contract for goods, services, or construction that is paid for in whole or in part with state funds. A state contract is considered to be awarded when it is entered into or executed, regardless of whether the parties to the contract have exchanged any money.
(3) "Participate" means to respond to any solicitation or procurement issued by a state agency or be the recipient of an award of a state contract, or to provide any goods or services to any state agency.
(B) No vendor who has been debarred by any state agency shall participate in any state contract during the period of debarment. No vendor who has been prohibited under section 102.99 of the Revised Code from participating in a contract with a public agency, as defined in section 102.01 of the Revised Code, shall participate in any contract with a public agency during the period provided in that section.
(C) State agencies shall exclude any vendor debarred under section 125.25, 153.02, or 5513.06 of the Revised Code, or any other section of the Revised Code from participating in state contracts. A public agency, as defined in section 102.01 of the Revised Code, shall exclude any vendor who is prohibited under section 102.99 of the Revised Code from participating in a contract with a public agency from participating in any contract with the public agency.
(D) After the debarment period or prohibition period expires, the vendor may be eligible to respond to any solicitation or procurement, provide goods or services to, and be awarded contracts by state agencies if the vendor is not otherwise listed on a list of debarred vendors applicable to state contracts, prohibited under section 102.99 of the Revised Code, or otherwise debarred or prohibited under any section of the Revised Code.
