conflict of interest immediately to the COUNTY. CONTRACTOR did not and will not provide any money or other benefit of any kind to
any COUNTY employee in the procuring of, facilitation of, and execution of or during the duration of this Agreement.
Communication with Staff: From the date this bid is issued until a contract is awarded, communication regarding this solicitation
between potential vendors and individuals employed by Douglas County is prohibited. Only written communication via email to
bidquestions@douglascounty-ne.gov is permitted. Once an award is made the vendor will be permitted to speak with person(s)
participating in contract negotiations. Violation of these conditions may be considered sufficient cause to reject a vendor’s bid and/or
selection irrespective of any other condition. The following exceptions to these restrictions are permitted: (1) Contacts made pursuant

when recognized by the County as staff facilitating the meeting for the purpose of addressing questions; and (3) Presentations, key

Unavailability of Funding: Due to possible future reductions including but not limited Douglas County (COUNTY), State and/or
Federal appropriations, the COUNTY cannot guarantee the continued availability of funding for this Agreement, notwithstanding the
consideration stated in this Agreement. In the event funds to finance this Agreement become unavailable either in full or in part due to
such reduction in appropriations, the COUNTY may terminate the Agreement or reduce the consideration upon notice in writing to
Contractor. The notice shall be delivered by certified mail, return receipt requested, or in person with proof of delivery. The COUNTY

funding reduction, whichever is later. Provided, that reduction shall not apply to payments made for services satisfactorily completed
prior to the effective date. In the event of a reduction of consideration, Contractor may cancel this Agreement as of the effective date of
the proposed reduction upon the provision of advance written notice to COUNTY.
Assignment and Delegation: This Agreement is exclusive to the Parties and rights may not be assigned nor duties delegated by
either Party except on prior written consent of the other. Any attempted assignment or delegation without such approval shall be void
and shall constitute a material breach of contract. Any and all additional fees, charges, costs or expenses, which result from an
approved assignment or delegation, shall be paid by the assigning/delegating Party.
Termination: Douglas County may terminate the awarded contract at any time if the vendor fails to carry out the terms or fails to make
substantial progress toward the fulfillment of the contract obligations. In such event, the County shall provide the vendor with thirty (30)
days written notice of conditions which endanger contract performance. If after such notice the vendor fails to remedy these conditions,

a pro-rated portion of the value of the performance bond depending on the value of the remaining portion of the contract. The County

agreement for any reason upon 30 days notice.
