Contractor agrees to provide and maintain at all times during the term of this Contract such insurance coverages as are indicated herein and to
otherwise comply with the provisions that follow. Such policy(ies) of insurance shall apply to the extent of, but not as a limitation upon or in satisfaction of,
the Contract indemnity provisions. The provisions of this section shall also apply to all Subcontractors, Sub-subcontractors, and Independent Contractors
engaged by Contractor with respect to this Contract, and Contractor shall be entirely responsible for securing the compliance of all such persons or parties
with these provisions.
Workers Compensation. Workers' Compensation insurance in compliance with all applicable statutes including an All States or
Universal Endorsement where applicable. Such policy shall include Employer's Liability coverage in an amount no less than $500,000. If Contractor is not
required by Statute to carry Workers’ Compensation Insurance, Contractor agrees: (1) to provide County with evidence documenting the specific provision
under Minn. Stat. § 176.041 which excludes Contractor from the requirement of obtaining Workers’ Compensation Insurance; (2) to provide prior notice to
County of any change in Contractor’s exemption status under Minn. Stat. § 176.041; and (3) to hold harmless and indemnify County from and against any and
all claims and losses brought by Contractor or any subcontractor or other person claiming through Contractor for Workers’ Compensation or Employers’
Liability benefits for damages arising out of any injury or illness resulting from performance of work under this Contract. If any such change requires
Contractor to obtain Workers’ Compensation Insurance, Contractor agrees to promptly provide County with evidence of such insurance coverage.
General Liability.
"Commercial General Liability Insurance" coverage (Insurance Services Office form title), providing coverage on an "occurrence" rather than on a
"claims made" basis, which policy shall include, but not be limited to, coverage for Bodily Injury, Property Damage, Personal Injury, Contractual Liability
(applying to this Contract), Independent Contractors, "XC&U" and Products-Completed Operations liability (if applicable). Such coverage may be provided
under an equivalent policy form (or forms), so long as such equivalent form (or forms) affords coverage which is at least as broad. An Insurance Services
Office "Comprehensive General Liability" policy which includes a Broad Form Endorsement GL 0404 (Insurance Services Office designation) shall be
considered to be an acceptable equivalent policy form.
Contractor agrees to maintain at all times during the period of this Contract a total combined general liability policy limit of at least $1,500,000 per
occurrence and aggregate, applying to liability for Bodily Injury, Personal Injury, and Property Damage, which total limit may be satisfied by the limit
afforded under its Commercial General Liability policy, or equivalent policy, or by such policy in combination with the limits afforded by an Umbrella or
Excess Liability policy (or policies); provided, that the coverage afforded under any such Umbrella or Excess Liability policy is at least as broad as that
afforded by the underlying Commercial General Liability policy (or equivalent underlying policy).
Such Commercial General Liability policy and Umbrella or Excess Liability policy (or policies) may provide aggregate limits for some or all of
the coverages afforded thereunder, so long as such aggregate limits have not, as of the beginning of the term or at any time during the term, been reduced to
less than the total required limits stated above, and further, that the Umbrella or Excess Liability policy provides coverage from the point that such aggregate
limits in the underlying Commercial General Liability policy become reduced or exhausted. An Umbrella or Excess Liability policy which "drops down" to
respond immediately over reduced underlying limits, or in place of exhausted underlying limits, but subject to a deductible or "retention" amount, shall be
acceptable in this regard so long as such deductible or retention for each occurrence does not exceed the amount shown in the provision below.
Contractor's liability insurance coverage may be subject to a deductible, "retention" or "participation" (or other similar provision) requiring the
Contractor to remain responsible for a stated amount or percentage of each covered loss; provided, that such deductible, retention or participation amount
shall not exceed $25,000 each occurrence.
Such policy(ies) shall name Dakota County, its officers, employees and agents as Additional Insureds thereunder.
Professional Liability. Professional Liability (errors and omissions) insurance with respect to its professional activities to be performed
under this Contract. This amount of insurance shall be at least $1,500,000 per occurrence and aggregate (if applicable). Coverage under such policy may be
subject to a deductible, not to exceed $25,000 per occurrence. Contractor agrees to maintain such insurance for at least one (1) year from Contract
It is understood that such Professional Liability insurance may be provided on a claims-made basis, and, in such case, that changes in insurers or
insurance policy forms could result in the impairment of the liability insurance protection intended for Dakota County hereunder. Contractor therefore agrees
that it will not seek or voluntarily accept any such change in its Professional Liability insurance coverage if such impairment of Dakota County's protection
could result; and further, that it will exercise its rights under any "Extended Reporting Period" ("tail coverage") or similar policy option if necessary or
appropriate to avoid impairment of Dakota County's protection. Contractor further agrees that it will, throughout the one (1) year period of required coverage,
immediately: (a) advise Dakota County of any intended or pending change of any Professional Liability insurers or policy forms, and provide Dakota County
with all pertinent information that Dakota County may reasonably request to determine compliance with this section; and (b) immediately advise Dakota
