The department shall request its legal staff, prior to awarding any contract, to review
the contract to determine the responsibilities of the parties for construction, material,
or design failures. The department shall, whenever practical, minimize its responsibility for such failures. The department legal staff shall review and comment on all contracts to:
(1) Determine the legal responsibility for construction, material, or design failures.
(2) Advise the department on ways to minimize the responsibility of the department
for such failures.
The department may require financial assurances, including, but not limited to, bonds,
liability insurance or other form of insurance, or letters of credit, to provide that
the responsibilities of the parties to a contract will be met.
