(a) A contractor shall not offer to pay any fee or other consideration that is contingent
on the making of a contract.
(b) Every contract shall contain the following prohibition against contingent fees:

to solicit or secure the contract upon an agreement or understanding for a commission,
percentage, brokerage fee, or contingent fee, except bona fide employees or bona fide
established commercial or selling agencies maintained by the contractor for the purpose
of securing business. For a breach or violation of this warranty, the District shall have the right to
terminate the contract without liability or in its discretion to deduct from the contract
price or consideration, or otherwise recover, the full amount of the commission, percentage,
brokerage, or contingent fee.
(c) A District employee shall not solicit or secure, or offer to solicit or secure,
a contract for which the employee is paid or is to be paid any fee or other consideration
contingent on the making of the contract between the employee and any other person.
