h. to make, enter into and perform all contracts and agreements necessary or incidental to the performance of its duties and the execution of its powers under this act. No contract on behalf of the trust shall be entered into for the doing of any work, or for the hiring of equipment or vehicles, if the sum to be expended exceeds the appropriate amount set forth in, or the amount calculated by the Governor pursuant to, section 2 of P.L.1954, c.48 (C.52:34-7), unless the trust first publicly advertises for bids therefor, and awards the contract to the lowest responsible, qualified bidder; but advertising is not required if the contract to be entered into is one for furnishing or performing services of a professional nature, if there is only one source for the product or service being procured, or if the product or service is supplied or rendered by a public utility subject to the jurisdiction of the Board of Public Utilities, and tariffs and schedules of the charges made, charged, or exacted by the public utility for such products to be supplied or services to be rendered are filed with the board. The provisions of this subsection shall not prevent the trust from having any work done by its own employees, nor does it apply to repairs, or to the furnishing of materials, supplies or labor, or the hiring of equipment or vehicles, when the safety or protection of its or other public property or the public convenience requires, or the exigency of the circumstances will not admit of such advertisement. In such case the trust shall, by resolution passed by the affirmative vote of a majority of the trustees in attendance, declare the exigency or emergency to exist, and set forth in the resolution the nature thereof and the approximate amount to be expended; and

i. to do all acts and things necessary or convenient to carry out the powers expressly granted in this act.
