POLICIES AND PROCEDURES
County Service Agreements: Contractual Risk Transfer
The County enters into contracts with contractors, vendors and consultants to provide a wide variety of services for the benefit of departments and the public. Use of these service providers may also expose the County to liability claims and lawsuits, and therefore policy established by the Board of Supervisors requires contractors to indemnify the County for their activities and maintain insurance coverage sufficient to protect themselves and the County against such risk.
CEO Risk Management Operations, with the assistance of County Counsel, has developed indemnification and insurance terms and conditions designed for use in all County service agreements.
