KCPL requires background checks. Supplier agrees to conduct reasonable background checks on each of Supplier’s employees, agents, representatives and contractors (“Supplier Personnel”) that will perform Services on GPES’s property, GPES’s “rights of way”, the property of GPES’s customers, or any aspect of GPES’s computer systems. Supplier acknowledges and agrees that only those persons who have successfully passed these background checks will perform such Services.

At a minimum, Supplier will confirm and verify each Supplier Personnel’s social security number, identity, authorization to work and county level criminal record check. Supplier Personnel who will have access to GPES’s computer systems or areas critical to the support of the electricity infrastructure will check the preceding items, as well as residence and employment check, drivers license history, drug screening, verification of highest level of education or professional certification and United States government terrorist list check.

Supplier is responsible for all costs related to such background checks and agrees to maintain accurate records pertaining to such background checks for a minimum of five (5) years after termination of this Agreement, unless limited by law.
