The Vendor shall file an updated completed questionnaire with the Business Services Manager not later than September 1 of the year in which an activity described in Section 176.006(a), Local Government Code, is pending, and not later than the seventh business day after the date of an event that would make a statement in the questionnaire incomplete or inaccurate.
