In the event of any conflict, inconsistency or discrepancy between the Main Agreement and this Addendum, this Addendum shall govern. The Main Agreement, as amended by this Addendum, is hereinafter referred to as the “Agreement”.
UNIVERSITY A GOVERNMENTAL ENTITY AND THEREFORE SUBJECT TO CERTAIN LAWS. Contractor is hereby informed that University is a governmental entity and thus subject to the Government Records Access and Management Act of the Utah Code, Section 63G-2-101 et seq., 1953, as may be amended (“GRAMA”). Pursuant to GRAMA, certain records within University’s possession or control (including the Agreement) may be subject to public disclosure.

Notwithstanding any provision to the contrary in the Agreement, University may disclose any information or record to the extent required by GRAMA or otherwise required by law, and to University’s attorneys, accountants, consultants on a need-to-know basis.
Contractor further acknowledges that University is a governmental entity under the Governmental Immunity Act of Utah, Utah Code Ann., Section 63G-7-101 et seq., as amended (the “Act”). Nothing in the Agreement shall be construed as a waiver by University of any protections, rights, or defenses applicable to University under the Act, including without limitation, the provisions of Section 63G-7-604 regarding limitation of judgments. It is not the intent of University to incur by contract any liability for the operations, acts, or omissions of the other Party or any third party and nothing in the Agreement shall be so interpreted or construed. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, and notwithstanding any provisions to the contrary in the Agreement, any obligations of University in the Agreement to indemnify, hold or save harmless, and/or defend contained in the Agreement are subject to the Act, are limited only to claims that arise from the negligent acts or omissions of University, and the total amount of any such obligations, inclusive of attorney’s fees, are limited to the amounts established in Section 63G-7-604 of the Act.
University is insured through its participation in the Risk Management Fund of the State of Utah, see
Utah Code 63A-4-101-104, 201. Nothing in the Agreement shall require University to carry different or additional insurance, and any obligations of University contained in the Main Agreement to name a party as additional insured shall be limited to naming such party as additional insured with respect to University’s negligent acts or omissions. If University is required to defend, indemnify or hold harmless Contractor
, a defense shall be provided by the State of Utah Division of Risk Management through its contracted Assistant Attorneys General.
REASONABLE DISCRETION. To the extent the Main Agreement permits Contractor to undertake any action, or refrain from undertaking any action, in the exercise of Contractor’s discretion, or based on any belief held by Contractor, Contractor shall exercise its discretion only in a good faith reasonable manner and shall act on its beliefs only if Contractor has a reasonable good faith basis for those beliefs.
