in the state of Arizona and with an “A.M. Best” rating of not less than B+ VI. The City in
no way warrants that the above-required minimum insurer rating is sufficient to protect
the Contractor from potential insurer insolvency.
VERIFICATION OF COVERAGE

equivalent approved by the City) as required by this Contract. The certificates for each
insurance policy are to be signed by a person authorized by that insurer to bind coverage
on its behalf.

All certificates and any required endorsements are to be received and approved
by the City before work commences. Each insurance policy required by this Contract
must be in effect at or prior to commencement of work under this Contract and remain in
effect for the duration of the project. Failure to maintain the insurance policies as required
by this Contract or to provide evidence of renewal is a material breach of contract.
All certificates required by this Contract must be sent directly to City of Phoenix
Aviation Department, Contracts and Services Division, 2485 E. Buckeye Road, Phoenix, AZ 85034. The City project/contract number and project description must be

formal Contract amendment, but may be made by administrative action.

Screening required in this Section is necessary to preserve and protect public health,
safety, and welfare. The Background Screening requirements set forth in this Section are
the minimum requirements for this Contract. The City in no way warrants that these
minimum requirements are sufficient to protect Contractor from any liabilities that may
arise out of Contractor’s services under this Contract or Contractor’s failure to comply
with this Section. Therefore, in addition to the specific measures set forth below,
Contractor and its Contract Workers shall take such other reasonable, prudent and
necessary measures to further preserve and protect public health, safety and welfare

Screening in all contracts and subcontracts for services furnished under this Contract,
including supervision and oversight services.

Materiality of Background Screening Requirements; Indemnity

entry into this Contract and any breach of this Section by Contractor shall be deemed a
material breach of this Contract. In addition to the indemnity provisions set forth in this
Contract, Contractor shall defend, indemnify, and hold harmless the City for any and all
Claims (as defined in Section 14) arising out of this Background Screening section
including the disqualification of a Contract Worker by Contractor or the City for failure to
satisfy this Section.

Continuing Duty; Audit
Contractor’s obligations and requirements that Contract Workers satisfy this
Background Screening Section shall continue throughout the entire term of this Contract.
Contractor shall notify the City immediately of any change to a Background Screening of
a Contract Worker previously approved by the City. Contractor shall maintain all records
and documents related to all Background Screenings and the City reserves the right to
audit Contractor’s compliance with this.

17. CONTRACT WORKER ACCESS CONTROLS, BADGE AND KEY ACCESS
REQUIREMENTS
(The successful buyer is referred to in this Section 17 as “Contractor.”) A
CONTRACT WORKER SHALL NOT BE ALLOWED TO BEGIN WORK ON AIRPORT
PROPERTY WITHOUT THE CONTRACT WORKER’S RECEIPT OF A CITY-ISSUED
BADGE. A BADGE WILL BE ISSUED TO A CONTRACT WORKER SOLELY FOR
ACCESS TO THE AREAS OF THE AIRPORT TO WHICH THE CONTRACT WORKER
IS ASSIGNED. EACH CONTRACT WORKER WHO ENTERS AIRPORT PROPERTY
MUST USE THE BADGE ISSUED TO THE CONTRACT WORKER.

Badges
Upon notification from Contractor’s authorized agent, the Contract Worker will
proceed to the Badging Office for processing and issuance of a badge. The City will not
process the badge until the Contract Worker satisfies the Background Screening
requirements. The Contract Worker shall comply with all requirements and furnish all
information requested by the Badging Office. All fees associated with security badging
will be assessed in compliance with Phoenix City Code § 4-22. Current badging
procedures and fees are available for review at
https://www.skyharbor.com/security/BadgingInformation.

Key Access Procedures
If a Contract Worker’s services require keyed access to enter a City facility, a
separate key issue and return form must be completed and submitted to the City project
manager by Contractor for each key issued.

Stolen or Lost Badges or Keys
Contractor shall immediately report lost or stolen badges or keys to the City. A
new badge application or key issue form shall be completed and submitted along with
payment of the applicable fees prior to issuance of a new badge or key

Return of Badges or Keys
All badges and keys are the property of the City and must be returned to the City at the Badging Office within one (1) business day after the Contract Worker’s access to
a City facility is no longer required to furnish the services under this Contract. Contractor
shall collect a Contract Worker’s badge and all keys (1) upon the termination of the
Contract Worker’s employment, (2) when the Contract Worker’s services are no longer
required at a City facility (3), and upon termination, cancellation, or expiration of this
Contract.

Contractor’s Default; Liquidated Damages; Reservation of Remedies for Material Breach
Contractor’s default under this Section shall include the following:
A Contract Worker gains access to a City facility without the proper badge or key;
A Contract Worker uses another person’s badge or key to gain access to a City
facility;
A Contract Worker commences services under this Contract without the proper
badge, key, or Background Screening;
A Contract Worker or Contractor submits false, incomplete, or misleading
information or negligently submits incorrect information to the City to obtain a
badge, key, or applicable Background Screening; or
Contractor fails to collect and timely return Contract Worker’s badge or key upon
termination of Contract Worker’s employment, reassignment of Contract Worker
to another City facility, or upon the expiration, cancellation, or termination of this
Contract. Contractor acknowledges and agrees that the access control, badge,
and key requirements in this Section are necessary to preserve and protect public
health, safety, and welfare. Accordingly, Contractor agrees to properly cure any
default under this Section within three (3) business days from the date notice of
default is sent by the City. Contractor’s failure to properly cure any default under
this Section shall constitute a breach of this Section. In addition to any other
remedy available to the City at law or in equity, Contractor shall be liable for and
shall pay to the City the sum of $1,000.00 for each breach by Contractor of this
Section. The parties agree that the foregoing amount is reasonable and
approximates the actual or anticipated loss to the City at the time and making of
this Contract in the event that Contractor breaches this Section. Further, the
parties agree to the foregoing amount because of the difficulty of proving the City's
actual damages in the event Contractor breaches this Section. The parties further
agree that three (3) breaches of this Section by Contractor within a three-month
period of time or three (3) breaches by Contractor of this Section arising out of the
same default within a period of twelve (12) consecutive months shall constitute a
material breach of this Contract by Contractor and the City expressly reserves all
of its rights, remedies, and interests under this Contract at law and in equity,
including termination of this Contract.
