H.9 SECURITY REQUIREMENTS FOR ON-SITE CONTRACTOR PERSONNEL (APR 1997)
Personnel provided under this contract shall not be under pending charges, shall have not been convicted of any felony within the last 10 years, or any misdemeanor within the last 5 years (excepting minor motor vehicle infractions for which the individual paid a fine or posted collateral in the amount of $300 or less) which would indicate violent or disruptive conduct, dishonest conduct, untrustworthiness or unreliability which could reasonably affect performance on the contract or pose a security concern with respect to access to Library buildings or grounds, property or collections. Note that the term "convicted" would include a disposition of "probation" or "probation before judgement." Should any person employed by the contractor to perform work under this contract be convicted of any of the aforesaid offenses, the contractor agrees to remove the individual from the contract performance and return all Library building and stack passes issued to the individual. The contractor also agrees to remove from the contract performance any individual under pending charges for any felony or misdemeanor with the exceptions noted above until such time as the final disposition is known. Upon request of the Library, the contractor will identify personnel to be assigned to work under the contract and submit a FD-258 (contractor fingerprint chart) and any other necessary administrative forms provided by the Library so that a background check may be conducted. The parties agree that the Library has final authority to determine the suitability of contractor personnel who perform work under this contract. Nevertheless, the fact that the Library may conduct background checks on assigned contractor personnel does not relieve the contractor of the responsibility to provide qualified, reliable personnel of sound character and conduct.
