APPENDIX A; CONTRACT COMPLIANCE REQUIREMENTS SMALL LOCAL BUSINESS ENTERPRISE AND PROCUREMENT NON-DISCRIMINATION PROGRAM (SLBE) Clayton County has implemented a Small Local Business and Procurement Nondiscrimination Program to promote full and open competition in all government procurement and purchasing. Goals for participation of Small Local Business Enterprises (SLBEs) are set for specific NIGP codes on a contract by contract basis for each specific prime contract with subcontracting possibilities. Please note that there is no SLBE goal on this project. However, the County wants to ensure that Proposers are non-discriminatory in their process of selecting subcontractors. Clayton County also wants to encourage Proposers to utilize small, minority or woman-owned businesses whenever possible. All forms included in this section must be completed for a Proposal to be considered responsive. SLBE means a locally-based small business operating inside or outside of Clayton County, which meets the following criteria: 1. Demonstrates that the firm's gross revenues or number of employees averaged over the past three years, inclusive of any affiliates as defined by 13 C.F.R. § 121.103 et al., does not exceed the size standards as defined pursuant to 13 C.F.R. §121.201 et al. which can be found at: http://www.sba.gov/sites/default/files/files/Size_Standards_Table.pdf; 2. Demonstrates that the net worth of each owner does not exceed $750,000, exclusive of principal residence and the value of the SLBE; 3. Provides information regarding the ethnicity and gender of its original owners; 4. Demonstrates that the firm is located or has an office in Clayton County (inside Clayton) or in DeKalb, Fayette, Fulton, Henry or Spalding counties (outside Clayton). If a firm is locally-based in one of the counties mentioned above, is currently certified as a small business through the SBA, DeKalb County, Georgia Department of Transportation, or the City of Atlanta, and can provide evidence of its certification, the firm will be provisionally accepted as a SLBE, provided that they complete the official certification application for Clayton County within ten (10) business days following the proposal opening date and prior to contract award. If a firm meets these qualifications, but is not currently certified as a small business, then the firm must complete an application for certification with Clayton County no later than seven (7) business days following the deadline for proposal submission.

RFP #15-05 RFID and AMH System for the Clayton County Library System

Page 44 of 89

Subcontractor participation is required to be submitted as part of the proposal submission by each proposer. Award of the contract is conditioned upon satisfaction of the SLBE and non-discrimination requirements. If the SLBE participation does not meet the goals, the Proposers will be required to submit evidence demonstrating that “good faith efforts” were made to meet the goal. SLBEs must perform a commercially useful function, which means performance or provision of real and actual services under a contract or subcontract with Clayton County Government. Factors such as the nature and amount of work subcontracted; whether the SLBE has the skill and expertise to perform the work for which it has been certified; whether the SLBE actually performs, manages or supervises the work; and whether the SLBE intends to purchase commodities and/or services from a non-SLBE and simply resell them will be considered in determining if the SLBE is performing a commercially useful function. This package contains the following forms that Proposers are required to submit along with their proposal: 1. Covenant of Non-Discrimination; 2. Statement of Successful Subcontractors; By signing the proposal, the Proposer is certifying that it has complied with the requirements of this program. Please contact the Contract Compliance Division for a list of certified SLBEs. SLBE PARTICIPATION GOAL (THERE IS NO GOAL FOR THIS PROJECT) PROCUREMENT NON-DISCRIMINATION PROGRAM In addition to the SLBE Program, Clayton County also has a compelling interest in providing equal business opportunities for all persons wishing to do business with it. Therefore, the County will also monitor and track minority and women-owned business (MWBE) availability and participation through Benchmarks. Benchmarks are not goals or quotas, but a method that enables the County to compare MWBE participation in procurement with expected participation rates based on availability within the Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA). Each of the forms included in this package require the proposer to provide information on the race/ethnicity and gender of each subcontractor who the Proposer contacted or who contacted the Proposer, successful subcontractors, and those who were not selected. If MWBE participation falls short of the Benchmark, this triggers an inquiry to determine if the proposer was discriminatory in selecting subcontractors. As with the SLBE program, firms that are currently certified as a minority or woman-owned firm by an entity in the MSA will be provisionally accepted as an MWBE, provided that they complete Clayton County’s certification application within ten (10) business days following the proposal opening date and prior to contract award. There is no Benchmark established for this project. However, as indicated above, the County will track the race/ethnicity and gender of subcontractors listed by Proposers in their proposal.

In accordance with the solicitation documents applicable to the agreement at the time Contractor/Consultant submits to County its executed agreement, Contractor/Consultant must satisfy all insurance requirements required by this Appendix B and applicable by law, and provide the required written documentation to County evidencing such compliance. In the event that Contractor/Consultant does not comply with such submittal requirements within the time period established by the solicitation documents applicable to the Agreement, County may, in addition to any other Rights County may have under the solicitation documents applicable to the Agreement or under applicable law, make a claim against any bid security provided by Contractor/Consultant.

Contractor/Consultant must promptly obtain a new policy or bond issued by an insurer acceptable to County and submit to County evidence of its compliance with these conditions. Contractor/Consultant’s failure to comply with all insurance minimum requirements set forth in this Appendix B and applicable to the Agreement will not relieve Contractor/Consultant from any liability under the Agreement. Contractor/Consultant’s obligations to comply with all insurance requirements set forth in Appendix B and applicable to the Agreement will not be construed to conflict with or limit Contractor/Consultant’s indemnification obligations under the Agreement. 3.

Insurance Required for Duration of Contract All insurance required by this Appendix B must be maintained during the entire term of the agreement, including any renewal or extension terms, and until all work has been completed to the satisfaction of the County and for three (3) years thereafter, at Contractor/Consultant’s sole cost and expense.
