2. SCOPE The Florida public colleges have developed a plan to maintain state-of-the-art hardware, software and peripherals in the most cost beneficial means available. A technology refresh program appears to meet this need. The key elements are equipment, pricing, maintenance, consulting services, leasing and trade-in, producing a possible

RFP # 11/12-09 Technology Refresh Program

long-term relationship. This program will be made available to all of Florida's public colleges, state universities, and district school boards and other educational entities should they elect to adopt this program. Participating institutions will work together with this program to minimize costs and increase efficiencies and effectiveness in our technology utilization. A steering committee has been formed from the participating colleges to serve as the primary contact point with the supplier. Only colleges’ representatives will serve on the committee working with the supplier unless, at some future date, the colleges decide to expand the committee participation. The colleges will individually contract with the supplier to acquire equipment and services referencing the terms and conditions of the RFP Response/Proposal. We foresee this program as a long-term partnership between the colleges and the supplier. We further expect this program to grow in scope and volume of activity. It is anticipated that all or most of all of Florida's twenty-eight member college system schools will eventually participate, assuming a most attractive pricing structure and performance history by the supplier.

3. TERM The term of this contract will be initially for three years, thereafter renewed annually with agreement of both parties. Either party may terminate the contract with a ninety (90) day certified letter of notification to the designated representative.

5.2

INDEMNIFICATION FOR TORT ACTIONS / LIMITATION OF LIABILITY

The provisions of Florida Statute 768.28 applicable to Valencia College, apply in full to this contract. Any legal actions to recover monetary damages in tort for injury or loss of property, personal injury, or death caused by the negligent or wrongful act or omission of any employee of the College acting within the scope of his/her office or employment are subject to the limitations specified in this statute. No officer, employee or agent of the College acting within the scope of his/her employment or function shall be held personally liable in tort or named as a defendant in any action for injury or damage suffered as a result of any act, event or failure to act. The College shall not be liable in tort for the acts or omissions of an officer, employee or agent committed while acting outside the course and scope of his/her employment. This exclusion includes actions committed in bad faith or with malicious purpose, or in a manner exhibiting wanton and willful disregard of human rights, safety, or property. To the fullest extent permitted by law, the supplier shall defend, indemnify, and hold harmless the College, its officials, agents, and employees from and against any and all claims, suits, judgments, demands, liabilities, damages, cost and expenses (including attorney’s fees) of any kind or nature whatsoever arising directly or indirectly out of or caused in whole or in part by any act or omission of the supplier or its subcontractors (if any), anyone directly or indirectly employed by them, or anyone for whose acts any of them may be liable; excepting those acts or omissions arising out of the sole negligence of the College. Provided, however, if the contract between the College and the supplier is deemed by a court of competent jurisdiction to be a construction contract for purposes of Section 725.06, Florida Statutes, any obligation of the supplier to defend, indemnify or hold harmless the College, shall be limited to an obligation to indemnify or hold harmless the College, it’s officers and employees from liability damages, losses, and costs, including but not limited to reasonable attorney’s fees, to the extent caused by the negligence, recklessness or intentionally wrongful conduct of the supplier and persons employed or utilized by the supplier in the performance of the contract.

5.3

PATENTS AND ROYALTIES Unless otherwise provided, the supplier shall be solely responsible for clearing the right to use any patented or copyrighted materials in the performance of the contract resulting from this RFP. The supplier, without exception, shall indemnify and save harmless the College and its employees from liability of any nature or kind, including cost and expenses for or on account of any copyrighted, patented, or unpatented invention, process, or article manufactured or supplied by the supplier. In the event of any claim against the College, of copyright or patent infringement, the College shall promptly provide written notification to the supplier. If such a claim is made, the supplier shall use its best efforts to promptly purchase for the College any infringing products or services or procure a license, at no cost to the College, which will allow continued use of the service or product. If none of the alternatives are reasonably available, the College agrees to return the article on request to the supplier and receive reimbursement, if any, as may be determined by a court of competent jurisdiction.

5.4

SUCCESSORS AND ASSIGNS

The College and the supplier each binds itself and its partners, successors, executors, administrators and assigns to the other party of this contract and to the partners, successors, executors, administrators and assigns of such other party, in respect to all covenants of this contract.
