To be liable for and indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Department and its officers, agents, and employees from all claims, suits, judgments, awards of money damages, attorneys fees, and court costs, arising out of any act, neglect, or omission by Community Partner, its agents, employees, and if applicable, subcontractors during the performance of this agreement, including subsequent amendments thereof.
2. Community Partner's inability to evaluate its liability or its evaluation of liability shall not excuse Community Partner's duty to comply with subparagraph A.1. above, within 7 days after notice by Department to Community Partner by certified mail. After the highest appeal taken is exhausted, only an adjudication or judgment specifically finding Community Partner not liable shall excuse Community Partner's compliance with subparagraph A.1.
