Chapter 507: Risk Management Procedures

The Law Department, through its Risk Management Division, in coordination with the Office of Procurement and Diversity, shall determine the appropriate risk management protections for county contracts, including but not limited to, all insurance and performance bond requirements. All such risk management protections shall be subject to the review and approval of the contract approval authority that has jurisdiction over the award of the contract.  Unless otherwise provided in the Cuyahoga County Code, insurance and bonding requirements shall be determined as set forth in Chapter 508 of the Cuyahoga County Code.

Section 507.01: Small Business Considerations

In formulating the appropriate risk management protections applicable to County contracts, the Law Department, through its Risk Management Division, shall give deference to the County’s interest in contracting with small businesses without causing undue risk to the County or the small businesses.  The County shall establish a process to pre-qualify contractors and vendors that are certified Small Business Enterprises and Cuyahoga County Based Businesses for Performance Bond Waivers under Section 508.02 of the Cuyahoga County Code.  For the purposes of this Section, “Cuyahoga County Based Business” shall have the same meaning as in Section 502.02 of this Code.
