Responsible Contractor Procedure
The RESPONSIBLE CONTRACTOR PROCEDURE of Day & Night Solar (DNS) is designed to guide, in a manner consistent with DNS fiduciary duty responsibility and management, of turn-key PV projects for our customer base. The policy seeks to ensure that the selection process for independent contractors will include, among other things, a demonstrated ability to provide reliable and high-quality services, which may be evident by their relevant experience, reputation, dependability, industry training, and ability to provide cost-effective services; thereby enhancing the value of said amenities.

DEFINITION OF A RESPONSIBLE CONTRACTOR
A “Responsible Contractor,” as used in this Policy, is an independent contractor who provides high quality services on a comparable and relevant basis in the applicable local market, consistent with the desired contracting criteria. Contractors based in local markets must have evidence including: the nature of the project, comparable job experience, or trade classifications, along with a history of operating under all local, state, and national laws and regulations that govern building, construction, and utility companies.
SELECTION OF RESPONSIBLE CONTRACTOR
If specific project requirements and laws are all met, it is preferable that a responsible contractor be hired consistent with performance of DNS fiduciary duties. Where no contractor is available, or the client dictates a category of contractor, DNS will attempt to select the contractor that, in their good-faith judgement, best demonstrates an ability and commitment to meet the requirements. Where a contractor is selected, DNS must closely monitor the contractor’s work to ensure compliance for the duration of the contract.
Given the time and expense required to solicit and evaluate potential contractors, it is not essential that DNS solicit all potential contractors. DNS must use reasonable efforts to ensure, to the commercially reasonable extent, that there is a selection process that is inclusive of potentially eligible responsible contractors. Competitive bidding does not necessarily ensure inclusion in the list of potential responsible contractors. DNS will retain full discretion while conducting the bidding process in a manner that is consistent with the fiduciary responsibilities to our clients.
