11 Contracts & Operations 11 Contracting basics Umbrella / enterprise contract outlines deliverables Based on voluntary agency participation (defined by separate service level agreements for individual projects) Flexible design for all agencies (including locals) Key elements customized to each government: flow of funds, reporting requirements, legal specifics Operating structure Local subsidiaries established in each market 100% dedicated to single governments operations Cloud-based solutions provide enterprise support (payment processing, hosting, CMS) Emphasis on local hiring to support economic development

12 Risk Management 12 Insurance & indemnity standard – specifics customized to each government Financial components also customized IP held in escrow and available to government after breakeven is reached (usually 1-2 years) Rigid security protocols Sarbanes-Oxley and PCI DSS compliant operations Third party validation (Verizon Business Security Management Program) includes annual on-site assessments
