6.12.1 Non-Software Deliverables Review
      Prior to the commencement of work on Non-Software Deliverables, the
      TMS System Integrator shall provide to the State an agenda, template, or
      draft course curriculum and handout materials (or other appropriate
      materials), for review and prior written approval by the State. The State
      will review and either approve the proposed content for the Non-Software
      Deliverable or not accept it and specify what the State requires. The
      finalized agenda, template, or draft course curriculum (or other
      appropriate material), will then be utilized to subsequently review the
      Deliverable to ensure it has met the State’s and TMS System Integrator’s
      expectations and can be accepted or not accepted based on previously
      agreed upon criteria.

      After receiving written Certification from the TMS System Integrator that a
      Non-Software Deliverable is final, complete, and ready for review, the
      State will review the Deliverable and the State will notify the TMS System
      Integrator in writing of its Acceptance or Rejection of the Deliverable. If
      the State rejects the Deliverable, the State will notify the TMS System
      Integrator, in detail, of the nature and class of the Deficiency and the TMS
      System Integrator must correct the Deficiency within five (5) business
      days, or within the period identified in the Work Plan, as applicable.

      Upon receipt of the corrected Deliverable, the State will have five (5)
      business days to review the corrected Deliverable and notify the TMS
      System Integrator of its Acceptance or rejection thereof with the option to
      extend the review period up to five (5) additional business days. If the
      TMS System Integrator has failed to correct the Deficiency within the
      allotted period of time, the State may, at its option, continue reviewing the
      Deliverable and require the TMS System Integrator to continue until the
      Deficiencies are corrected.

       If the TMS System Integrator is unable to remedy the Deficiency during
      the cure period, then the State may declare the TMS System Integrator in
      default, pursuant to Appendix G-4, Section 8, and immediately pursue its
      remedies at law and in equity.

6.12.2 Required Software Licenses
      The TMS System Integrator will work with the State to ensure that the
      proper licensing and support is put in place, if required for the Project.
      The TMS System Integrator will be responsible for ensuring that their
      Proposal adequately identifies Software products and licensing that the
      State will require for implementation. The State will contract directly with
      the software publishers, if required.

APPENDIX A: BACKGROUND INFORMATION

A-1      OFFICE OF INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY AND TECHNOLOGY STATUS
         The Project will be conducted in cooperation with the New Hampshire Office of
         Information Technology (OIT). Created in the summer of 2003, OIT oversees
         implementation of all statewide information technology activities.


      A-1.1     New Hampshire Information Technology Plan (NHITP)
         The Office of Information Technology recently published a State of New
         Hampshire five (5) year Statewide Strategic Information Technology Plan
         (NHITP) 2005-2009. The NHITP 2005-2009 contains the vision, goals, and
         strategy for the electronic delivery of government services on the Internet and
         details future e-government direction and implementation strategy. The NHITP
         2005-2009 helps government leaders anticipate and respond to significant
         external changes, accelerates IT learning across state agencies, and leverages
         investments in information technology across State agencies.

      A-1.2     Technical Architecture
                Components of the State’s technical architecture include
                1. State Network Environment: The State operates ten (10) independent,
                   wide-area networks using frame relay technology. Some State
                   agencies support their own networks, some out-source the support,
                   and some use the resources of another agency.

                2. Internet Access: All State agencies are connected to the State’s
                   intranet, New Hampshire State Unified Network (NH SUN). This WAN
                   provides access to e-mail, the Internet and the State’s financial
                   applications. Some agencies have their own Internet service
                   providers in addition to NH SUN.

A-2      EXISTING ITS AND COMMUNICATIONS SYSTEMS
         The following diagrams and tables depict proposed and existing systems
         architecture and communication drawings. The TMS System Integrator is
         responsible for the overall functionality of the system; however, the proposed
         solution shall meet the expectations of a level of redundancy and availability of
         the following diagrams.

G-4.7 Termination
   G-4.7.1 Termination for Default

             G-4.7.1.1      Unless otherwise provided in the Contract, the State shall
                            provide the TMS System Integrator written notice of default,
                            and the TMS System Integrator must cure the default within
                            thirty (30) days, unless otherwise indicated within by the State


                                                                                                    152

            (“Cure Period”). If the TMS System Integrator fails to cure the
                   default within the Cure Period, the State may terminate the
                   Contract, at its sole discretion, and pursue its remedies at law or
                   in equity or both.

     G-4.7.1.2     In the event the State declares the TMS System Integrator in
                   default and terminates the contract, the State may, at a
                   minimum, take any or all of the following actions:

                   G-4.7.1.2.1 Set off against any other obligations the State may
                               owe to the TMS System Integrator;

                   G-4.7.1.2.2 Procure services that are the subject of the
                               Contract from another source and the TMS System
                               Integrator shall be liable for all damages up to the
                               Contract price, including but not limited to (1) the
                               cost difference between the original Contract price
                               for services acquired from another source and (2)
                               if applicable, all administrative costs directly
                               related to the replacement of the Contract, such as
                               costs of competitive bidding, mailing, advertising,
                               applicable fees, charges or penalties, and staff time
                               costs; and

                   G-4.7.1.2.3 Treat the Contract as breeched and pursue any of
                               its remedies at law or in equity, or both.

     G-4.7.1.3 The TMS System Integrators shall provide the State with written
               notice of default, and the State shall cure the default within thirty
               (30) days.

     G-4.7.1.4 No remedy conferred under the Contract is intended to be
               exclusive of any other remedy, and each remedy is cumulative and
               in addition to every other remedy in the Contract. The State’s
               election or non-election of any or more remedies shall not
               constitute a waiver of its right to pursue other available remedies.

     G-4.7.1.5 Subject to applicable laws and regulations, the State, in no event,
               shall be liable for any consequential, special, indirect, incidental,
               punitive, or exemplary damages. The State’s liability to the TMS
               System Integrator under the Contract shall not exceed two (2X) the
               total Contract price, excluding maintenance fees.

     G-4.7.1.6 Subject to applicable laws and regulations, in no event shall the
               TMS System Integrator be liable for any consequential, special,
               indirect, incidental, punitive or exemplary damages and the TMS
               System Integrator’s liability to the State shall not exceed two (2X)

                    otherwise provided in Appendix G-4 Section 13: Indemnification.

        G-4.7.1.7 Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing herein contained shall be
                  deemed to constitute a waiver of the sovereign immunity of the
                  State, which immunity is herby reserved to the State. This
                  covenant shall survive termination or Contract Conclusion.

G-4.7.2 Termination for Convenience

        G-4.7.2.1 The State may, at its sole discretion, terminate the Contract, in
                  whole or in part, by thirty (30) days written notice to the TMS
                  System Integrator.       In the event of such termination for
                  convenience, the State shall pay the TMS System Integrator the
                  agreed upon price, if separately stated, for Deliverables for which
                  Acceptance has been given by the State. Amounts for services or
                  Deliverables provided prior to the date of termination for which no
                  separate price is stated will be paid, in whole or in part, generally
                  in accordance with Appendix F: Pricing Worksheets, Tables F-1:
                  Activities/Deliverables/Milestones Pricing Worksheet and F-2:

        G-4.7.2.2 During the thirty (30) day period, the TMS System Integrator shall
                  wind down and cease its Services as quickly and efficiently as
                  reasonably possible, without performing unnecessary Services or
                  activities and by minimizing negative effects on the State from
                  such winding down and cessation of Services.

G-4.7.3 Termination for Conflict of Interest

        G-4.7.3.1 The State may terminate the Contract by written notice if it is
                  found that a conflict of interest exists, including but not limited to,
                  a violation by any of the parties hereto of applicable laws regarding
                  ethics in public acquisitions and procurement and performance of
                  contracts.

        G-4.7.3.2 In the event the Contract is terminated as provided above pursuant
                  to a violation by the TMS System Integrator, the State shall be
                  entitled to pursue the same remedies against the TMS System
                  Integrator as it could pursue in the event of a default of the
                  Contract by the TMS System Integrator.

             G-4.7.4.1 Upon termination of the Contract, the State, in addition to any
                       other rights provided in the Contract, may require the TMS System
                       Integrator to deliver to the State any property, including without
                       limitation, Software and Written Deliverables, for such part of this
                       Contract as has been terminated.

             G-4.7.4.2 After receipt of a notice of termination, and except as otherwise
                       directed by the State, TMS System Integrator shall:

                           State to the extent required, which approval or ratification shall
                           be final for the purpose of this Section;

                        c. Take such action as the State directs, or as necessary to
                           preserve and protect the property related to this Contract which
                           is in the possession of TMS System Integrator and in which
                           State has an interest;

                        d. Transfer title to the State and deliver in the manner, at the
                           times, and to the extent directed by the State, any property
                           which is required to be furnished to State and which has been
                           accepted or requested by the State; and

                        e. Provide written Certification to the State that TMS System
                           Integrator has surrendered to the State all said property.



G-4.8 Force Majeure
      Neither TMS System Integrator nor the State shall be responsible for delays or
      failures in performance resulting from events beyond the control of such party and
      without fault or negligence of such party. Such events shall include, but not be
      limited to, acts of God, strikes, block outs, riots, and acts of War, epidemics, acts of
      Government, fire, power failures, nuclear accidents, earthquakes, and unusually
      severe weather.
G-4.9 Information

   G-4.9.1In performing its obligations under the Contract, the TMS System Integrator may
          gain access to information of the State, including confidential information. The
          TMS System Integrator shall not use information developed or obtained during


                                                                                                 155

        the performance of, or acquired, or developed by reason of the Contract, except
        as is directly connected to and necessary for the TMS System Integrator’s
        performance under the Contract.

G-4.9.2The TMS System Integrator agrees to maintain the confidentiality of and to
       protect from unauthorized use, disclosure, publication, and reproduction, all
       information of the State that becomes available to the TMS System Integrator in
       connection with its performance under the Contract, regardless of its form.
       Subject to applicable federal or State laws and regulations, Confidential
       Information shall not include information which: (i) shall have otherwise become
       publicly available other than as a result of disclosure by the receiving party in
       breach hereof; (ii) was disclosed to the receiving party on a non-confidential
       basis from a source other than the disclosing party, which the receiving party
       believes is not prohibited from disclosing such information as a result of an
       obligation in favor of the disclosing party; (iii) is developed by the receiving
       party independently of, or was known by the receiving party prior to, any
       disclosure of such information made by the disclosing party; or (iv) is disclosed
       with the written consent of the disclosing party. A receiving party also may
       disclose Confidential Information to the extent required by an order of a court of
       competent jurisdiction.

G-4.9.3Any disclosure of the State’s information shall require prior written approval of
       the State. The TMS System Integrator shall immediately notify the State if any
       request, subpoena or other legal process is served upon the TMS System
       Integrator regarding the State’s information, and the TMS System Integrator shall
       cooperate with the State in any effort it undertakes to contest the subpoena or
       other legal process.

G-4.9.4In the event of unauthorized use or disclosure of the State’s information, the
       TMS System Integrator shall immediately notify the State, and the State shall
       immediately be entitled to pursue any remedy at law, including, but not limited to
       injunctive relief.

G-4.9.5Insofar as the TMS System Integrator seeks to maintain the confidentiality of its
       confidential or proprietary information, the TMS System Integrator must clearly
       identify in writing the information it claims to be confidential or proprietary. The
       TMS System Integrator acknowledges that the State is subject to the Right to
       Know law, RSA Chapter 91-A. The State shall maintain the confidentiality of
       the identified confidential information insofar as it is consistent with applicable
       laws or regulations, including but not limited to, RSA Chapter 91-A. In the event
       the State receives a request for the information identified by the TMS System
       Integrator as confidential, the State shall notify the TMS System Integrator and
       specify the date the State will be releasing the requested information. Any effort
       to prohibit or enjoin the release of the information shall be the TMS System
       Integrator’s sole responsibility and at the TMS System Integrator’s sole expense.
       If the TMS System Integrator fails to obtain a court order enjoining the
       disclosure, the State shall release the information on the date specified in the



                                                                                              156

           State’s notice to the TMS System Integrator without any State liability to the
           TMS System Integrator.

   G-4.9.6This Section G-4.9 shall survive termination or Contract Conclusion.

G-4.10 Change of Ownership
   In the event that the TMS System Integrator should change ownership for any reason
   whatsoever, the State shall have the option of continuing under the Contract with the
   TMS System Integrator or its successors or assigns for the full remaining term of the
   Contract; continuing under the Contract with the TMS System Integrator or its successors
   or assigns for such period of time as determined necessary by the State; or immediately
   terminating the Contract without liability to the TMS System Integrator, its successors or
   assigns.

G-4.11 TMS System Integrator’s Relation to the State
   In the performance of the Contract, the TMS System Integrator is in all respects an
   independent contractor, and is neither an agent nor an employee of the State. Neither the
   TMS System Integrator nor any of its officers, employees, agents, or members shall have
   authority to bind the State or receive any benefits, worker’s compensation or other
   emoluments provided by the State to its employees.

G-4.12     Assignment, Delegation and Subcontracts
   G-4.12.1 The TMS System Integrator shall not assign, delegate, subcontract, or
            otherwise transfer any of its interest, rights, or duties under the Contract
            without the prior written consent of the State. Such consent will not be
            unreasonably withheld. Any attempted transfer, assignment, delegation, or
            other transfer made without the State’s prior written consent shall be null and
            void.

   G-4.12.2 The TMS System Integrator shall remain wholly responsible for performance
            of the entire Contract regardless of whether assignees, delegates,
            Subcontractors or other transferees (“Successor”) are used, unless otherwise
            agreed to in writing by the State and the Successor fully assumes in writing any
            and all obligations and liabilities under the Contract. In the absence of a
            written assumption of full obligations and liabilities of the Contract, any
            permitted assignment, delegation, subcontract or other transfer shall neither
            relieve the TMS System Integrator of any of its obligations under the Contract
            nor shall it affect any remedies available to the State against the TMS System
            Integrator that may arise from any event of default of the provisions of the
            Contract. The State will consider the TMS System Integrator to be the sole
            point of contact with regard to all contractual matters, including payment of
            any and all charges resulting from the Contract.




                                                                                                157

G-4.13 Indemnification
   The TMS System Integrator shall indemnify, defend and hold harmless the State, its
   officers and employees, from and against any and all losses suffered by the State, its

              remedies, at law or in equity.

  G-7 Certification Regarding Debarment, Suspension, and other
     Responsibility Matters - Primary Covered Transactions

                           Instruction for Certification

1. By signing and submitting this proposal, the prospective primary participant is
   providing the certification set out below.

2. The inability of a person to provide the certification required below will not
   necessarily result in denial of participation in this covered transaction. The
   prospective participant shall submit an explanation of why it cannot provide the
   certification set out below. The certification or explanation will be considered in
   connection with the department or agency’s determination whether to enter into
   this transaction. However, failure of the prospective primary participant to
   furnish a certification or an explanation shall disqualify such person from
   participation in this transaction.

3. The certification in this clause is a material representation of fact upon which
   reliance was placed when the department or agency determined to enter into this
   transaction. If it is later determined that the prospective primary participant
   knowingly rendered an erroneous certification, in addition to other remedies
   available to the Federal Government, the department or agency may terminate this
   transaction for cause of default.

4. The prospective primary participant shall provide immediate written notice to the
   department or agency to whom this proposal is submitted if at any time the
   prospective primary participant learns that its certification was erroneous when
   submitted or has become erroneous by reason of changed circumstances.

5. The terms “covered transaction,” “debarred,” “suspended,” “ineligible,” “lower
   tier covered transaction,” “participant,” “person,” “primary covered transaction,”
   “principal,” “proposal,” and “voluntarily excluded,” as used in this clause, have
   the meanings set out in the Definitions and Coverage sections of the rules
   implementing Executive Order 12549. You may contact the department or
   agency to which this proposal is being submitted for assistance in obtaining a
   copy of these regulations.

6. The prospective primary participant agrees by submitting this proposal that,
   should the proposed covered transaction be entered into, it shall not knowingly
   enter into any lower tier covered transaction with a person who is debarred,
   suspended, declared ineligible, or voluntarily excluded from participation in this
   covered transaction, unless authorized by the department or agency entering into
   this transaction.



                                                                                  173

                                DOT RFP 2006-024
7. The prospective primary participant further agrees by submitting this proposal
   that it will include the clause titled “Certification” Regarding Debarment,
   Suspension, Ineligibility and Voluntary Exclusion-Lower Tier Covered
   Transaction,” provided by the department or agency entering into this covered
   transaction, without modification, in all lower tier covered transactions and in all
   solicitations for lower tier covered transactions.

8. A participant in a covered transaction may rely upon a certification of a
   prospective participant in a lower tier covered transaction that is not debarred,
   suspended, ineligible, or voluntarily excluded from the covered transaction, unless
   it knows that the certification is erroneous. A participant may decide the method
   and frequency by which it determines the eligibility of its principals. Each
   participant may, but is not required to, check the Nonprocurement List.

9. Nothing contained in the foregoing shall be construed to require establishment of
   a system of records in order to render in good faith the certification required by
   this clause. The knowledge and information of a participant is not required to
   exceed that which is normally possessed by a prudent person in the ordinary
   course of business dealings.

10. Except for transactions authorized under paragraph 6 of these instructions, if a
    participant in a covered transaction knowingly enters into a lower tier covered
    transaction with a person who is suspended, debarred, ineligible, or voluntarily
    excluded from participation in this transaction, in addition to other remedies
    available to the Federal Government, the department or agency may terminate this
    transaction for cause or default.




                                                                                   174

        It shall be the policy of the New Hampshire Department of Transportation
(NHDOT) to ensure nondiscriminatory opportunity for Disadvantaged Business
Enterprises (DBE’s) to participate in the performance of all contracts and subcontracts
financed with Federal funds as specified by the regulations of the United States
Department of Transportation (USDOT), Federal Highway Administration and as set
forth below.

1. Policy. It is the policy of the United States Department of Transportation to ensure
nondiscriminatory opportunity for disadvantaged business enterprises, as defined in 49
Code of Federal Regulation (CFR) Part 26, to participate in the performance of contracts
and subcontracts financed in whole or in part with Federal funds. Consequently, the DBE
requirements of 49 CFR Part 26 apply to this contract.

2. Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) Obligation. The State and its
Contractors agree to ensure nondiscriminatory opportunity for disadvantaged business
enterprises, as defined in 49 CFR Part 26, to participate in the performance of contracts
and subcontracts financed in whole or in part with Federal funds. Each subcontract the
prime contractor signs with a subcontractor must include this assurance: The
contractor, subrecipient or subcontractor shall not discriminate on the basis of race,
color, national origin, or sex in the performance of this contract. The contractor shall
carry out applicable requirements of 49 CFR part 26 in the award and administration of
USDOT-assisted contracts. Failure by the contractor to carry out these requirements is a
material breach of this contract, which may result in the termination of this contract or
such other remedy, as the NHDOT deems appropriate.

3. Sanctions of Non-Compliance. The Contractor is hereby advised that failure of the
Contractor, or any Subcontractor performing work under this contract, to carry out the
requirements set forth in paragraphs 1 and 2 above shall constitute a breach of contract
and, after notification of the United States Department of Transportation, may result in
termination of this contract or such remedy as the State deems appropriate.

shall be furnished for steel and iron materials. The certificates, in addition to certifying
that the materials comply with the specifications, shall also specifically certify that all
manufacturing process for the materials, except as allowed by this Special Attention,
occurred in the United States.

        The requirements of said law and regulations do not prevent a minimal use of
foreign steel and iron materials if the cost of such materials used does not exceed one-
tenth of one percent (0.1%) of the total contract price or $2,500.00, whichever is greater.
The Contractor shall furnish the Engineer acceptable documentation of the quantity and
value of any foreign steel and iron prior to incorporating such materials into the work.
