After the effective date of this act, members shall be appointed to serve for terms of three years. Each member appointed pursuant to this act shall hold office for the term of appointment and until he is reappointed or a successor is appointed and qualified. Each member serving upon the effective date who was selected prior to the effective date of this act shall hold office until a successor is appointed and qualified or the member is appointed pursuant to this act, after which he will hold office for the term of appointment. A member appointed to fill a vacancy occurring in the membership of the board for any reason other than the expiration of the term shall have a term of appointment for the unexpired term only. Each vacancy shall be filled in the same manner as the original appointment. Any appointed member may be removed from office by the Governor, for cause, after a hearing and may be suspended by the Governor pending the completion of the hearing. Members of the board shall serve without compensation.

b.The Apparel Procurement Board shall be administered by the commissioner and shall have the power to receive complaints that any bidder or contractor is not in compliance with this act, and recommend an investigation into the merits of such complaints. If the commissioner determines, upon a hearing after notice, that a vendor, sub-contractor or bidder has not complied with any requirement of this act, including any finding of failure to provide truthful information as required by this act, the commissioner may terminate an existing apparel contract at the earliest feasible date, and may bar the vendor or bidder from receiving pending or subsequent apparel contracts for a period determined by the commissioner, but there shall be a period of debarment of not less than three years if the contractor or subcontractor demonstrates a pattern of repeated serious noncompliance with the provisions of this act.

c.The commissioner and the board shall give priority to coordinating enforcement, monitoring and information collection activities with any political subdivision of this State, with any other state or its political subdivisions and with any other governmental and intergovernmental units and shall give priority to participating in any appropriate consortia which assist in enforcement, monitoring and information collection activities and are independent of the monitored industries.
