                   ALAMEDA COUNTY SOCIAL SERVICES AGENCY 2007/2008


I.     INTRODUCTION

Alameda County Social Services Agency (SSA) seeks proposals from community-based
organizations, as well as public or private for-profit or non-profit agencies to provide
Emancipation Training and Support Services in Fiscal Years 2007/2008 to qualified probation
and foster youth enrolled in the Independent Living Skills Program (ILSP) from ages 15½
though emancipation, in accordance with legislated program requirements. SSA is seeking to
purchase services in sufficient capacity to provide services to all eligible program participants.
In anticipation of changes to the ILSP and funding levels, this solicitation of proposals is limited
to Fiscal Year 2007/2008. However, SSA reserves the option to extend any contracts entered
into as a result of this solicitation for up to two (2) additional years.

The Social Services Agency provides services through the ILSP office at 2647 International
Blvd, Suite 312, in Oakland. Classes are also provided 4 nights per week at the Chabot College
campus in Hayward, through arrangement with Chabot College Administration. The ILSP office
serves the northern part of Alameda County; the Chabot Campus classes serve the southern and
eastern parts of Alameda County. The SSA preference is to award one (1) emancipation services
contract for both sites.

The total amount of funds for Emancipation Training and Support is $580,000 for the twelve-
month period of July 1, 2007 through June 30, 2008.

All ILSP contract awards are contingent upon receipt, by the County, of adequate Federal and
State funding. All ILSP contracts will be performance-based, and earned amounts will be
payable on a fee-for-service basis.

This RFP will apply for up to three (3) years, with contracts being on a fiscal year basis.
This means that ILSP contracts that are funded for 2007/2008 may be extended for up to two
additional twelve-month periods of operation if the County receives adequate additional Federal
and State funding to continue program operation; if the Project has achieved demonstrable
success by meeting the Project's performance benchmarks as described in the ILSP contract
related to the Project; if the County continues to need the services provided; and if the Contractor
is willing and able to successfully revise the specific services provided in order to best meet the
changing needs of ILSP participants. Any extension of projects will be at the County's discretion.
Funding beyond June 30, 2008 is not guaranteed.

Community-Based Organizations and Public or Private, For-Profit or Non-Profit Organizations
with experience providing emancipation services for the targeted population are invited to
respond to this solicitation. Collaborations are encouraged if appropriate for service delivery.
Projects with direct linkages to employers, housing providers, and other organizations serving
youth who are able to assist ILSP participants in their successful emancipation are especially
desired.

The timetable for this RFP Process is provided on Page 29 of this document.

II.    GENERAL INFORMATION

       A. Costs of Developing the Proposal

          All costs incurred in the preparation of a proposal, including travel expenses to attend
          the RFP Conferences, are the responsibility of each bidder and will not be reimbursed
          by the County.

       B. Terms and Conditions of the Proposal

          It is the responsibility of each bidder to be familiar with all of the specifications,
          terms and conditions of the Request for Proposals (RFP). By the submission of a bid,
          the bidder certifies that if awarded a contract, bidder will make no claim against the
          County based upon ignorance of or misunderstanding of the specifications.

          The COVER LETTER of each proposal stipulates that each bidder accepts all terms
          and conditions contained in the RFP package and that the terms of the bidder’s
          offer/response are contractual terms. Each bidder shall submit its proposal with the
          understanding that the proposal will become a part of the official file on this matter,
          and shall be subject to disclosure, if requested by a member of the public, following
          the final award decision.

          The COVER LETTER of each proposal also stipulates that each bidder certifies that
          all statements in the proposal are true. This constitutes a warranty, the falsity of
          which shall include the right, at Alameda County's option, of declaring any contract
          made, as a result thereof, null and void. Proposals shall be completed, executed, and
          submitted in accordance with the instructions of this RFP. If a proposal is not
          submitted in the format specified by SSA, it may be rejected; unless SSA determines
          that the nonconformity is either a minor irregularity or that the defect or variation in
          the proposal is immaterial or inconsequential. SSA may give the bidder an
          opportunity to cure any deficiency resulting from a minor irregularity or an
          immaterial or inconsequential defect, or SSA may waive such deficiency, whichever
          is most advantageous to SSA.

       C. Successful Proposal as Part of Contract Services

          All ILSP 2007/2008 proposals received in response to this solicitation, at the SSA’s
          discretion, may be appended to and incorporated into the awarded contracts and may
          serve as basic terms and conditions for the ultimate contracts. Therefore, bidders are
          advised that, if successful, they will be held responsible for levels of services
          proposed at the funding levels quoted. SSA reserves the right to negotiate
          modifications or revisions to any awarded project to ensure coverage of program
          requirements. Bidders are also advised that an award of funds by the County Board
                                               4
           ALAMEDA COUNTY SOCIAL SERVICES AGENCY 2007/2008

   of Supervisors initiates a contract negotiation process. If SSA cannot successfully
   negotiate an ILSP 2007/2008 contract with an awarded bidder, SSA will void that
   bidder's funding award and may award the funds to an alternate bidder.


D. Pre-Contract Assessment

   Prior to the execution of an ILSP 2007/2008 contract, SSA reserves the right to
   arrange on-site fiscal assessments by Agency staff to determine the potential
   contractor’s ability to meet the terms and conditions of the RFP and the proposed
   contract.

   The Contractor/Fiscal Agent shall have at least one of the following for review:

   Financial statements for the past three (3) years. These statements should be prepared
   by a certified public accountant;

                                              OR

   A written statement and supporting evidence that the organization has been
   incorporated for less than one (1) year and a financial report has not been completed;

                                              OR

   Other written evidence of its financial stability/solvency, fiscal accountability, ability
   to manage funds and willingness to have financial records reviewed by an

    4. Although the County reserves the right to consider REFERENCES, OTHER
       COLLATERAL CONTACTS, and in the case of current or past CONTRACTORS,
       OVERALL PAST PERFORMANCE in the implementation of any or all previous
       Contracts with the County, information submitted in response to the RFP shall be a
       primary source of information used in rating projects and awarding FY 2007/2008
       ILSP contracts. Therefore, respondents should prepare and submit proposals that
       accurately describe the program, including budgets, they plan to implement.

       additional information after the RFP submittal deadline--unless specifically
       requested by the County.

       that it considers to be non-substantive.

    8. Each bidder will be notified by e-mail of the review panel's rating decisions and
       funding recommendations.

    9. After the review process, the appeal process set forth below will take place.
       Subsequently, the Director of the Social Services Agency may exercise further
       review of the rating panel’s findings and the appeal panel’s findings, and may
       conduct analysis of any gaps in planned services to include matters such as
       language access and capacity, geographical spread of services, or other factors
       deemed to have a direct bearing on planned services.

    10. Final award of funding will be made by the Board of Supervisors during a
        regularly scheduled meeting. Each bidder will be notified by e-mail of the date
        and time of the Board meeting.

    11. To aid SSA in promoting the programs of successful respondents to ILSP

M. County Provisions

          1. Preference for Local Products and Vendors: A five (5) percent preference
             shall be granted to Alameda County products or Alameda County vendors
             on all sealed bids on contracts except with respect to those contracts which
             state law requires be granted to the lowest responsible bidder. An Alameda
             County vendor is a firm or dealer with fixed offices and having a street
             address within the County for at least six (6) months prior to the issue date of
             this RFP; and which holds a valid business license issued by the County or a
             city within the County. Alameda County products are those which are
             grown, mined, fabricated, manufactured, processed or produced within the
             County. Locality must be maintained for the term of the contract. Evidence
             of locality shall be provided immediately upon request and at any time
             during the term of any contract that may be awarded to Contractor pursuant
             to this RFP.

          2. Small, Local and Emerging Business (SLEB): A small business for
             purposes of this RFP is defined by the United States Small Business
             Administration as having no more than $6.5 million in average annual
             gross receipts over the last three (3) years. An emerging business, as
             defined by the County is one having annual gross receipts of less than one-
             half (1/2) of the above amount over the same period of time. In order to
             participate herein, the small or emerging business must also satisfy the
             locality requirements and be certified by the County as a Small or
             Emerging, local business. Evidence of locality and certification shall be
             provided immediately upon request and at any time during the term of any
             contact that may be awarded to Contractor pursuant to this RFP. To learn
             more about the above program and the certification process, visit
             www.acgov.org/gsa.

              A locally-owned business, for purposes of satisfying the locality
              requirements of this provision, is a firm or dealer with fixed offices and
                                      10
ALAMEDA COUNTY SOCIAL SERVICES AGENCY 2007/2008

  having a street address within the County for at least six (6) months prior to
  the issue date of this RFP; and which holds a valid business license issued by
  the County or a city within the County.

  The County is vitally interested in promoting the growth of small and
  emerging local businesses by means of increasing the participation of
  these businesses in the County’s purchase of goods and services. As a
  result of the County’s commitment to advance the economic opportunities
  of these businesses the following provisions shall apply to this RFP:

  a.     If Bidder is certified by the County as either a small and local or an
         emerging and local business, the County will provide a five (5)
         percent bid preference, in addition to that set forth in paragraph A.,
         above, for a total bid preference of ten (10) percent. However, a
         bid preference cannot override a State law, which requires the
         granting of an award to the lowest responsible bidder.

  b.     Bidders not meeting the small or emerging local business
         requirements set forth above do not qualify for a bid preference
         and must partner, joint venture or subcontract with one or more
         County certified small and/or emerging local businesses for at least
         twenty (20) percent of Bidder’s total bid amount in order to be
         considered for the contract award. Bidder, in its bid response, must
         submit written documentation evidencing a firm contractual
         commitment to meeting this minimum local participation
         requirement. Participation of a small and/or emerging local
         business must be maintained for the term of any contract resulting
         from this RFP. Evidence of participation shall be provided
         immediately upon request at any time during the term of such
         contract. Contractor shall provide quarterly participation reports
         during the term of said contract and a final account statement at the
         end of the contract to the County Business Outreach Officer.

         The County reserves the right to waive these small/emerging local
         business participation requirements in this RFP, if the additional
         estimated cost to the County, which may result from inclusion of
         these requirements, exceeds five (5) percent of the total estimated
         contract amount or Ten Thousand Dollars ($10,000), whichever is
         less.

         If additional information is needed regarding this requirement,
         please contact Linda Moore, Business Outreach Officer, Alameda
         County General Services Agency, at (510) 208-9717 or via E-mail
         at linda.moore@acgov.org.

         All Alameda County Non-Profit Organizations/CBO,
         governmental and faith-based/church vendors may apply for

                           11
ALAMEDA COUNTY SOCIAL SERVICES AGENCY 2007/2008

           SLEB status to be eligible for the five percent (5%) bid
           preference available to SLEB certified vendors.

3. First Source Program: The First Source Program has been developed to
   create a public/private partnership that links CalWORKs job seekers,
   unemployed and under employed County residents to sustainable
   employment through the County’s relationships/connections with
   business, including contracts that have been awarded through the
   competitive process, and economic development activity in the County.
   Welfare reform policies and the new Workforce Investment Act require
   that the County do a better job of connecting historically disconnected
   potential workers to employers. The First Source program will allow the
   County to create and sustain these connections.

   Contractors awarded contracts for goods and services in excess of
   $100,000 as a result of this RFP are required to provide Alameda County
   with ten (10) working days, to refer to Contractor, potential candidates to
   be considered by Contractor to fill any new or vacant positions that are
   necessary to fulfill their contractual obligations to the County, that
   Contractor has available during the life of the contract before advertising
   to the general public. Potential candidates referred by County to
   Contractor will be pre-screened, qualified applicants based on
   Contractor’s specifications. Contractor agrees to use its best efforts to fill
   its employment vacancies with candidates referred by County, but the
   final decision of whether or not to offer employment, and the terms and
   conditions thereof, rest solely within the discretion of the Contractor.

   Contractors participating in the First Source Program may be eligible for
   incentives - including, but not limited to - tax credits for employees hired,
   Enterprise Zone credits, and an on-the-job training subsidy.

   Bidders are required to complete, sign and submit in their bid response,
   the First Source Agreement that has been attached hereto as Attachment
   11, Page 64 of this document, whereby they agree to notify the First
   Source Program of job openings prior to advertising elsewhere (ten-day
   window) in the event that they are awarded a contract as a result of this
   RFP. Attachment 11 will be completed and signed by the County upon
   contract award and made a part of the final contract document.

   For additional information regarding the First Source Program
   requirements, please contact Linda Moore, Business Outreach Officer,
   Alameda County General Services Agency, at (510) 208-9717 or via E-
   mail at linda.moore@acgov.org.

4. Environmentally Friendly Packaging: Alameda County is an
   environmentally
   responsible employer and seeks all practical opportunities for waste
   reduction and recycling. The County, therefore, encourages its contractors
                            12
                 ALAMEDA COUNTY SOCIAL SERVICES AGENCY 2007/2008

                    to reduce waste volume and toxicity by using environmentally friendly
                    packaging material whenever possible. Options may include backhauling
                    product packaging to the supplier for reuse or recycling, shipping in bulk
                    or reduced packaging, using soy bean-based inks for packaging printing,
                    using recycled product packaging or using recyclable or reusable
                    packaging material. The County encourages all bidders and contractors
                    for goods and services to adhere to these principles where practicable.

                 5. Collaborative: Entities submitting a joint response to the RFP/RFQ are
                    required to provide written documentation of the collaborative agreement
                    entered into by the individual parties. Such documentation must be
                    submitted with the collaborating agencies’ proposal and must include the

                              Alameda County Social Services Agency
                              2647 International Blvd., 3rd floor, Suite 312

                                         15
            ALAMEDA COUNTY SOCIAL SERVICES AGENCY 2007/2008

     The geographic distribution of the ILSP caseload, the types and volume of services
     needed for ILSP participants, and other resources that are available to the County for
     service to ILSP participants, will each be considerations in the determination of
     funding awards.

     Responding agencies are advised to request levels of funding which will maximize
     the effectiveness of each proposed project. SSA reserves the right to recommend
     awards that are less than the funds requested.

     It is expected that funds available under this RFP will be used to leverage additional
     resources to support ILSP program goals. Additional funding from partner agencies
     private funders, or federal, state, and local sources should be used to expand the
     level of participation and range of options open to the clients.

E. ELIGIBILITY FOR SERVICES: All persons enrolled in FY 2007/2008 ILSP
   employment and support services programs must be ILSP participants who have
   been determined by SSA to be eligible for the services provided by the Contractor.
   Final determination of eligibility for services rests with the SSA. SSA staff will refer
   ILSP recipients to the Contractor, eliminating the need to recruit participants.

F.   ELIGIBLE BIDDERS: Community-Based Organizations and Public or Private
     Profit or Non-Profit Organizations with experience in providing successful services
     for foster youth and emancipating foster youth such as assisting youth in obtaining

     California and hold, or be in the process of securing, IRS tax status of 501(c) 3. All

     services to be purchased by the County.

     The County may contact some or all of the references provided by the respondent, in
     order to determine the respondent's performance record on work similar to that
     described in this RFP. The County reserves the right to contact references other than
     those provided in the response and to use the information gained from them in the
     evaluation process.

   project. An agency may submit one or more proposals. Two or more agencies may
   join together to submit a proposal or proposals.

     Non-Responsive proposals that do not meet the terms, conditions, and specifications

            ALAMEDA COUNTY SOCIAL SERVICES AGENCY 2007/2008

rights, and shall be void.

10. Independent Contractor Status: Neither the Contractor nor any of its employees shall by virtue of this
Agreement be an employee of County for any purpose whatsoever, nor shall it or they be entitled to any of the
rights, privileges, or benefits of County employees. Contractor shall be deemed at all times an independent

information. County shall respect the confidentiality of information furnished by Contractor to County as specified
in Exhibit A(s) or as otherwise provided by law.

12. Termination Provisions: Termination for Cause -- If County determines that Contractor has failed, or will fail,
through any cause, to fulfill in a timely and proper manner its obligations under the Agreement, or if County
determines that Contractor has violated or will violate any of the covenants, agreements, provisions, or stipulations
of the Agreement, County shall thereupon have the right to terminate the Agreement by giving written notice to
Contractor of such termination and specifying the effective date of such termination.

Without prejudice to the foregoing, Contractor agrees that if prior to or subsequent to the termination or expiration
of the Agreement upon any final or interim audit by County, Contractor shall have failed in any way to comply with
any requirements of this Agreement, then Contractor shall pay to County forthwith whatever sums are so disclosed

            COMMUNITY-BASED ORGANIZATION MASTER CONTRACT

                               AUDIT REQUIREMENTS

The County contracts with various organizations to carry out programs mandated by the Federal
and State governments or sponsored by the Board of Supervisors. Under the Single Audit Act
Amendments of 1996 and Board policy, the County has the responsibility to determine whether
those organizations receiving funds through the County have spent them in accordance with the
provisions of the contract, applicable laws and regulations.

The County discharges this responsibility by reviewing audit reports submitted by contractors
and through other monitoring procedures.

I.     AUDIT REQUIREMENTS

       A. Funds from Federal Sources: non-federal entities which are determined to be
          subrecipients by the supervising department according to§___. 210 of OMB Circular
          A-133 and which expend annual Federal awards of:

              1.      $500,000 ($300,000 if the fiscal year ended before January 1, 2004) or

                      Circular A-133. When an auditee expends Federal awards under only one
                      Federal program (excluding R&D) and the Federal program's laws,
                      regulations, or grant agreements do not require a financial statement audit
                      of the auditee, the auditee may elect to have a program-specific audit
                      conducted in accordance with §___.235 of OMB Circular A-133.

              2.      Less than $500,000 ($300,000 if the fiscal year ended before January 1,
                      2004) are exempt from the single audit requirement except that the County
                      may require a limited-scope audit in accordance with §___.230 (b)(2)of
                      OMB Circular A-133.

       B. Funds from All Sources: non-federal entities which receive annual funds through the

              1.      $100,000 or more must have a financial audit in accordance with the U.S.
                      Comptroller General’s Government Auditing Standards covering all
                      County programs.

              2.      Less than $100,000 are exempt from these audit requirements except as
                      otherwise noted in the contract.

              3.      If a non-federal entity is required to have or chooses to do a single audit,
                      then it is not required to have a financial audit in the same year. However,

                                               38

               4.      if a non-federal entity is required to have a financial audit, it may be
                       required to also have a limited-scope audit in the same year.

       C. General Requirements for All Audits:

               1.      All audits must be conducted in accordance with Government Auditing
                       Standards prescribed by the U.S. Comptroller General.

               2.      All audits must be conducted annually, except where specifically allowed
                       otherwise by laws, regulations or County policies.

               3.      Audit reports must identify each County program covered in the audit by
                       contract number, contract amount and contract period. An exhibit number
                       must be included when applicable.

               4.      If a funding source has more stringent and specific audit requirements,
                       they must prevail over those described here.


II.    AUDIT REPORTS

       At least two copies of the audit reports package, including all attachments and any
       management letter with its corresponding response, should be sent to the County
       supervising department within six months after the end of the contract period or other
       time frame specified by the department. The County supervising department is
       responsible for forwarding a copy to the County Auditor within one week of receipt.

III.   AUDIT RESOLUTION

       Within 30 days of issuance of the audit report, the entity must submit to its County
       supervising department a plan of corrective action to address the findings contained
       therein. Questioned costs and disallowed costs must be resolved according to procedures
       established by the County in the Contract Administration Manual. The County
       supervising department will follow-up on the implementation of the corrective action
       plan as it pertains to County programs.

IV.    ADDITIONAL AUDIT WORK

The County, the state or Federal agencies may conduct additional audits or reviews to carry out
their regulatory responsibilities. To the extent possible, these audits and reviews will rely on the
audit work already performed under these audit requirements.

                               GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

1. INDEPENDENT CONTRACTOR: No relationship of employer and employee is created by
      this Agreement; it being understood and agreed that Contractor is an independent
      contractor. Contractor is not the agent or employee of the County in any capacity
      whatsoever, and County shall not be liable for any acts or omissions by Contractor nor
      for any obligations or liabilities incurred by Contractor.

       Contractor shall have no claim under this Agreement or otherwise, for seniority, vacation
       time, vacation pay, sick leave, personal time off, overtime, health insurance medical care,
       hospital care, retirement benefits, social security, disability, Workers’ Compensation, or
       unemployment insurance benefits, civil service protection, or employee benefits of any
       kind.

       Contractor shall be solely liable for and obligated to pay directly all applicable payroll
       taxes (including federal and state income taxes) or contributions for unemployment
       insurance or old age pensions or annuities which are imposed by any governmental entity
       in connection with the labor used or which are measured by wages, salaries or other
       remuneration paid to its officers, agents or employees and agrees to indemnify and hold
       County harmless from any and all liability which County may incur because of
       Contractor’s failure to pay such amounts.

       In carrying out the work contemplated herein, Contractor shall comply with all applicable
       federal and state workers’ compensation and liability laws and regulations with respect to
       the officers, agents and/or employees conducting and participating in the work; and
       agrees that such officers, agents, and/or employees will be considered as independent
       contractors and shall not be treated or considered in any way as officers, agents and/or
       employees of County.

       Contractor does, by this Agreement, agree to perform his/her said work and functions at
       all times in strict accordance with currently approved methods and practices in his/her
       field and that the sole interest of County is to insure that said service shall be performed
       and rendered in a competent, efficient, timely and satisfactory manner and in accordance
       with the standards required by the County agency concerned.

       Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the County determines that pursuant to state and federal
       law Contractor is an employee for purposes of income tax withholding, County may upon
       two week’s notice to Contractor, withhold from payments to Contractor hereunder federal
       and state income taxes and pay said sums to the federal and state governments

2. INDEMNIFICATION: To the fullest extent permitted by law, Contractor shall hold harmless,
      defend and indemnify the County of Alameda, its Board of Supervisors, employees and
      agents from and against any and all claims, losses, damages, liabilities and expenses,
      including but not limited to attorneys’ fees, arising out of or resulting from the
      performance of services under this Agreement, provided that any such claim, loss,


                                                45
                                                               ATTACHMENT 7 (Page 6 of 17)

       damage, liability or expense is attributable to bodily injury, sickness, disease, death or to
       injury to or destruction of property, including the loss therefrom, or to any violation of
       federal, state or municipal law or regulation, which arises out of or is any way connected
       with the performance of this agreement (collectively “Liabilities”) except where such
       Liabilities are caused solely by the negligence or willful misconduct of any indemnitee.
       The County may participate in the defense of any such claim without relieving Contractor
       of any obligation hereunder.

       In the event that Contractor or any employee, agent, or subcontractor of Contractor
       providing services under this Agreement is determined by a court of competent
       jurisdiction or the Alameda County Employees’ Retirement Association (ACERA) or
       California Public Employees’ Retirement System (PERS) to be eligible for enrollment in
       ACERA and PERS as an employee of County, Contractor shall indemnify, defend, and
       hold harmless County for the payment of any employee and/or employer contributions
       for ACERA and PERS benefits on behalf of Contractor or its employees, agents, or
       subcontractors, as well as for the payment of any penalties and interest on such
       contributions, which would otherwise be the responsibility of County.

3. INSURANCE AND BOND: Contractor shall at all times during the term of the Agreement
      with the County maintain in force those insurance policies and bonds as designated in the
      attached Exhibit C, and will comply with all those requirements as stated therein.

4. PREVAILING WAGES: Pursuant to Labor Code Sections 1770 et seq., Contractor shall pay
     to persons performing labor in and about Work provided for in Contract not less than the
     general prevailing rate of per diem wages for work of a similar character in the locality in
     which the Work is performed, and not less than the general prevailing rate of per diem
     wages for legal holiday and overtime work in said locality, which per diem wages shall not
     be less than the stipulated rates contained in a schedule thereof which has been ascertained
     and determined by the Director of the State Department of Industrial Relations to be the
     general prevailing rate of per diem wages for each craft or type of workman or mechanic
     needed to execute this contract.

5. WORKERS’ COMPENSATION: Contractor shall provide Workers' Compensation
     insurance, as applicable, at Contractor's own cost and expense and further, neither the
     Contractor nor its carrier shall be entitled to recover from County any costs, settlements,
     or expenses of Workers' Compensation claims arising out of this Agreement.

6. CONFORMITY WITH LAW AND SAFETY:

       a.      In performing services under this Agreement, Contractor shall observe and
               comply with all applicable laws, ordinances, codes and regulations of
               governmental agencies, including federal, state, municipal, and local governing
               bodies, having jurisdiction over the scope of services, including all applicable
               provisions of the California Occupational Safety and Health Act. Contractor shall



                                                46
                                                             ATTACHMENT 7 (Page 7 of 17)

             indemnify and hold County harmless from any and all liability, fines, penalties
             and consequences from any of Contractor’s failures to comply with such laws,
             ordinances, codes and regulations.

      b.     Accidents: If a death, serious personal injury or substantial property damage
             occurs in connection with Contractor’s performance of this Agreement,
             Contractor shall immediately notify the Alameda County Risk Manager's Office
             by telephone. Contractor shall promptly submit to County a written report, in
             such form as may be required by County of all accidents which occur in

             accident and whether any of County's equipment, tools, material, or staff were
             involved.

      c.     Contractor further agrees to take all reasonable steps to preserve all physical
             evidence and information which may be relevant to the circumstances
             surrounding a potential claim, while maintaining public safety, and to grant to the
             County the opportunity to review and inspect such evidence, including the scene
             of the accident.

       of Supervisors of the County.

       The Contractor agrees that any information, whether proprietary or not, made known to
       or discovered by it during the performance of or in connection with this Agreement for
       the County will be kept confidential and not be disclosed to any other person. The
       Contractor agrees to immediately notify the County by notices provided in accordance
       with Paragraph 11 of this Agreement, if it is requested to disclose any information made
       known to or discovered by it during the performance of or in connection with this
       Agreement. These conflict of interest and future service provisions and limitations shall
       remain fully effective five (5) years after termination of services to the County hereunder.

       a.      If Contractor is obligated to defend County pursuant to this Section 31 and fails to
               do so after reasonable notice from County, County may defend itself and/or settle
               such proceeding, and Contractor shall pay to County any and all losses, damages
               and expenses (including attorney’s fees and costs) incurred in relationship with
               County’s defense and/or settlement of such proceeding.

               option, (1) procure for County the right to continue using the Contractor Products;

       c.      Notwithstanding this Section 31, County retains the right and ability to defend
               itself, at its own expense, against any claims that Contractor Products infringe any
               patent, copyright, or other intellectual property right.

       the additional requirements. If the Contractor elects to supply other agencies, orders will
