In some cases, a vendor may seek to limit its liability to the University for failure in the performance of their product or service. Very often, the vendor’s liability for such failure is limited. Any limitation on a vendor’s liability must be reviewed since University policy precludes such limitations. University policy prohibits any contractual provision which would require the University to indemnify a vendor.
Note: Vendors doing business with the University must be insured and must provide the University with a current certificate from their respective carrier. For capital projects, it is the responsibility of the department in charge of the project, to ensure the selected vendor carries sufficient insurance for a particular project.
