(A) General provisions. The value of anything transferred or received in breach of the ethical standards of this article by a city employee or non-employee may be recovered from either the city employee or non-employee.
(B) Recovery of kickbacks by the city. Upon a showing that a subcontractor made a kickback to a prime contractor or a higher tier subcontractor in connection with the award of a subcontract or order thereunder, it shall be conclusively presumed that the amount thereof was included in the price of the subcontract or order and ultimately borne by the city, and will be recoverable hereunder from the recipient. In addition, that amount may also be recovered from the subcontractor making kickbacks. Recovery from one offending party shall not preclude recovery from other offending parties.
