                by this Contract may be obtained by means of any combination of primary and umbrella
                coverage’s and by endorsement and/or rider to a separate or blanket policy and/or under a
                                                                                                                39
blanket policy in lieu of a separate policy or policies, provided that Contractor shall deliver a
certificate of insurance of any said separate or blanket policies and/or endorsements and/or
riders evidencing to HPA that the same complies in all respects with the provisions of this
Contract, and that the coverage’s thereunder and the protection afforded HPA, Republic Parking

"occurrence" or a "claims made" basis, providing, however, that, should any insurance be carried
on a "claims made" basis, Contractor also shall be obligated to procure an extended reporting
period thereto or a subsequent "claims made" policy with the same retroactive date as the prior
"claims made" policy, as necessary to protect HPA, Republic Parking System, Inc., and City as
additional Insured’s from any claims, actions or causes of action which first accrue during the
term hereof.
All references in this Section to a "deductible" shall be deemed to mean a deductible and/or a
self-insured retention. No policy required to be procured by Contractor pursuant to this Contract
shall be subject to a deductible or similar provision limiting or reducing coverage. If any person is
owed, pursuant to any policy required hereunder, any sum which is subject to a deductible,
Contractor shall pay such deductible. Contractor agrees that it will not carry or be the
beneficiary of any insurance insuring Contractor or any other person or entity against the risks
for which insurance is required to be maintained pursuant to this Section unless the insurance

                              PART V: DOCUMENTATION AND COMMITMENT REQUIRED
   1.      For companies employing more than 3 persons, please submit as part of this EEO report, a copy of your
           Company Policy Statement of Equal Employment
   2.      For companies employing more than 10 persons, please submit as part of this EEO report a written
           commitment to hire minority and female works if your work force statistics are not representative of the
           minority and female work force availability in your labor market area. In lieu of reviewing the 1990 census
           data in your labor market area, you may use as a guide the work force availability in the Greater Hartford
           Labor Market, which is:
                                     Minority Males: 16% of the total male work force
                                            Females: 47% of the total work force



   The Proposer understands and agrees that its failure to meet the equal opportunity requirements
   established by sections 2-545 and 2-548 of the Code (both of which are provided with the request for
   Proposal) will preclude such Proposal being considered. The proposer agrees to the procedure set forth in
   section 2-548 of the Code in regard to the determination of whether such proposer is an equal opportunity
   employer. The Proposer also understands and agrees that the equal opportunity documents will become a
   part of the contract, and that a breach of the provision of the equal opportunity documents will constitute a
   breach of the contract subject to such remedies as provided by law.
