County Government Personal Services Agreement
I have been selected to perform a personal services contract by a New Mexico county at a fixed price. The county manager has provided a VERY one sided contract; e.g., unlimited – time and dollars – indemnification of the county. It was apparently redacted from a standard form contract.
Rather than negotiate changes item by item, (the cost would be prohibitive given the value of the work specified), is there a standard form contract in use by New Mexico Counties under the personal service statutes? If so, how can a obtain a copy.
While this initial engagement with county government does not justify retention of counsel, I am relocating to central New Mexico, intend to build a consulting practice and am interested in establishing an on-going relationship with an attorney or firm.
Thanks in advance.
