XIV.

Page 7 of 10

B.

Contractor’s policy required in subsection A above shall provide, at a minimum, for the following:
definitions of employee, relationships and offender; a statement of prohibited relationships; duty of an
employee to inform Contractor of unplanned contacts with offenders; a statement that Contractordirected contacts or those which are part of the employee's job duties are exempt from the policy; an
exception procedure which may be carried out by Contractor’s designee; and a standard employee
statement indicating that each employee has read a copy of the Contractor's policy on fraternization.

engaging in any sexual contact or sexual intercourse with offenders under the custody and control of

Directive 16-A may also be obtained from the Contractor Administrator.

D.

Contractor must maintain a copy of the signed employee statement on fraternization in each employee's
personnel file.

FAITH-BASED ORGANIZATIONS
A.

A faith-based organization is eligible to be a Contractor on the same basis as any other private
organization. If Contractor is a faith-based organization it shall retain its independence from the State
of Wisconsin, including without limitation Contractor’s control over the definition, development,
practice, and expression of its religious beliefs. Except as otherwise provided by state or federal law,
DOC shall not interpret this Contract to require a faith-based organization to alter its form of internal
governance or remove religious art, icons, scriptures, or other symbols.

B.

A religious organization does not, by contracting with the State of Wisconsin, lose the exemption
provided under Section 702 of the Civil Rights Act (42 U.S.C. 2000e-1(a)) regarding its employment
practices. Furthermore, if a faith-based organization segregates the government funds provided under
the Contract, then only the financial assistance provided by these funds will be subject to audit.

C.

Neither DOC’s selection of a faith-based Contractor to provide the Services described herein nor the
expenditure of funds under this Contract is an endorsement of the Contractor’s religious character,
practices, or expression. The purpose of this Contract is the provision of Services; none of DOC’s
expenditures have as their objective the funding of sectarian worship, instruction, or proselytization.
As such, a faith-based Contractor of Non-secular Services under this Contract shall post at its place(s)
of business the following written notice and personally apprise all assisted offenders of the same unless
its programming is exclusively secular and it does not display conspicuous symbols of its religious
character, practices, or expression:
Neither the State of Wisconsin’s selection of a faith-based Contractor of
services nor the expenditure of funds under any contract with said Contractor
is an endorsement of that Contractor’s religious character, practices, or
expression. No Contractor of services may discriminate against you on the
basis of religion, a religious belief, or your refusal to actively participate in a
religious practice. If you object to a particular Contractor because of its
religious character, you may request assignment to a different non-sectarian
Contractor by contacting your Agent.

D.

To ensure an offender is informed of the foregoing, a faith-based Contractor shall require that each
offender receiving Non-secular Services or receiving secular services in a place where the organization
displays conspicuous symbols of its religious character, practices, or expression under this Contract
signs an acknowledgment form prepared by the Contractor containing the aforementioned notice and
verifying the offender’s receipt of the same. A copy of all signed acknowledgment forms shall be
promptly provided to DOC. Finally, DOC will require that each offender sign the DOC’s “Voluntary
Choice and Waiver” form, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 1, prior to receiving any nonsecular services from a faith-based Contractor under this Contract. A faith-based Contractor agrees to
refrain from providing non-secular services hereunder to an offender until it receives a copy of a fully
executed Voluntary Choice and Waiver form from DOC for that respective offender.

any of the following conditions:

XVI.

A.

DOC may terminate the Contract at any time, with or without cause and without penalty by delivering
thirty (30) days written notice to the Contractor.

B.

DOC has a Vendor Performance Evaluation process for soliciting feedback from contract users about
vendor performance and compliance with contract specifications. Vendor noncompliance with the
terms, conditions or specifications that is persistent and/or significantly impacts the quality and
performance provided pursuant to the contract may be considered in breach of contract. Negative
Vendor Performance Evaluation Surveys may result in non-renewal or termination of contract.

C.

The State of Wisconsin reserves the right to cancel this contract if the contractor fails to follow the
requirements of Wis. Stats 77.66, and related statutes regarding registration and certification for
collection of sales and use tax.

D.

If at any time the Contractor performance threatens the health and/or safety of DOC employees,
offenders or the public, DOC has the right to cancel and terminate the Contract without notice.

E.

Failure to maintain the required Certificates of Insurance, Permits and Licenses shall be cause for
Contract termination. If the Contractor fails to maintain and keep in force the insurance as provided in
#23 of the Standard Terms and Conditions, DOC has the right to cancel and terminate the Contract
without notice.

F.

If at any time a petition in bankruptcy shall be filed against the Contractor and such petition is not
dismissed within 90 calendar days, or if a receiver or trustee of Contractor's property is appointed and
such appointment is not vacated within 90 calendar days, DOC has the right, in addition to any other
rights of whatsoever nature that it may have at law or inequity, to terminate the Contract by giving 10
calendar days notice, in writing, of such termination.

G.

Failure of DOC to comply with contract terms, conditions or specifications shall provide the sole cause
for which the Contractor is entitled to terminate the contract. The Contractor shall notify the
Department in writing within thirty (30) days after the Contractor becomes aware of the alleged
noncompliance with a complete description of the same. If the DOC does not, within forty-five (45)
days after its receipt of the Contractor’s notice, either (1) effect a cure or (2) if the noncompliance is
not one that can reasonably be cured within forty-five (45) days, develop a plan to cure the
noncompliance and diligently proceed according to that plan unto a cure is effected, then the
Contractor may terminate the Contract for cause by written notice to DOC. The Contractor may not
terminate the Contract without cause unless express written consent to do so is provided by DOC.

EXECUTED CONTRACT TO CONSTITUTE ENTIRE AGREEMENT
