Agencies All State Agencies may utilize and purchase under any state Centralized Contract let by the Commissioner, unless the Bid Documents limit purchases to specific State Agencies.
Agency Cross Transactions From time to time, the Sub-Advisor or brokers or dealers affiliated with it may find themselves in a position to buy for certain of their brokerage clients (each an “Account”) securities which the Sub-Advisor’s investment advisory clients wish to sell, and to sell for certain of their brokerage clients securities which advisory clients wish to buy. Where one of the parties is an advisory client, the Advisor or the affiliated broker or dealer cannot participate in this type of transaction (known as a cross transaction) on behalf of an advisory client and retain commissions from both parties to the transaction without the advisory client’s consent. This is because in a situation where the Sub-Advisor is making the investment decision (as opposed to a brokerage client who makes his own investment decisions), and the Sub-Advisor or an affiliate is receiving commissions from one or both sides of the transaction, there is a potential conflicting division of loyalties and responsibilities on the Sub-Advisor’s part regarding the advisory client. The SEC has adopted a rule under the Advisers Act which permits the Sub-Advisor or its affiliates to participate on behalf of an Account in agency cross transactions if the advisory client has given written consent in advance. By execution of this Agreement, the Trust authorizes the Sub-Advisor or its affiliates to participate in agency cross transactions involving an Account. The Trust may revoke its consent at any time by written notice to the Sub-Advisor.
Rating Agency Fees The Depositor shall pay (or cause to be paid) the annual fees of each Rating Agency including, but not limited to, surveillance fees.
Rating Agency Downgrade In the event that DBAG’s short-term unsecured and unsubordinated debt rating is reduced below “A-1” by S&P or, if DBAG has both a long-term credit rating and a short-term credit rating from Moody’s, and either its long-term unsecured and unsubordinated debt rating is withdrawn or reduced below “A2” by Moody’s or its short-term credit rating is withdrawn or reduced below “P-1” by Moody’s (and together with S&P, the “Swap Rating Agencies”, and such rating thresholds, “Approved Rating Thresholds”), then within 30 days after such rating withdrawal or downgrade, DBAG shall, subject to the Rating Agency Condition and at its own expense, either (i) cause another entity to replace DBAG as party to this Agreement that meets or exceeds the Approved Rating Thresholds on terms substantially similar to this Agreement, (ii) obtain a guaranty of, or a contingent agreement of another person with the Approved Rating Thresholds, to honor, DBAG’s obligations under this Agreement, (iii) post collateral which will be sufficient to restore the immediately prior ratings of the Certificates and any Notes, or (iv) establish any other arrangement which will be sufficient to restore the immediately prior ratings of the Certificates and any Notes. In the event that DBAG’s long-term unsecured and unsubordinated debt rating is reduced below “BBB-” or its short-term unsecured and unsubordinated debt rating is reduced below “A-3” or is withdrawn by S&P or DBAG’s long-term unsecured and unsubordinated debt rating is withdrawn or reduced below “A3” by Moody’s or its short-term credit rating is reduced below “P-2” by Moody’s, then within 10 days after such rating withdrawal or downgrade, DBAG shall, subject to the Rating Agency Condition and at its own expense, either (i) cause another entity to replace DBAG as party to this Agreement that meets or exceeds the Approved Rating Thresholds on terms substantially similar to this Agreement or (ii) obtain a guaranty of, or a contingent agreement of another person with the Approved Rating Thresholds to honor, DBAG’s obligations under this Agreement. In either case, DBAG shall deliver collateral acceptable to the Swap Rating Agencies until DBAG has made such transfer or obtained a guaranty as set forth in (i) and (ii) above. For purposes of this provision, “Rating Agency Condition” means, with respect to any particular proposed act or omission to act hereunder that the party acting or failing to act must consult with each of the Swap Rating Agencies then providing a rating of the Certificates and any Notes and receive from each of the Swap Rating Agencies a prior written confirmation that the proposed action or inaction would not cause a downgrade or withdrawal of the then-current rating of the Certificates or any Note.
Agency Service Fee As a condition of employment during the term of this Agreement, every member of the bargaining unit who is not also a member of the Association shall pay or by payroll deduction shall have paid to the said Association an agency service fee that shall be one hundred percent (100%) of the then current rate of dues payable by a member of the said Association; provided, however, that no such payment or deduction shall include any amount that represents a cost not related by the provisions of Section 3 of Article IX of the Rules and Regulations Relating to the Administration of Chapter 150E of the General Laws as such rules and regulations have been promulgated, and as they may be amended from time to time by the Department of Labor Relations (DLR). Such fee so required to be paid shall be payable on or after the thirtieth (30th) day next following the beginning of employment of such member of the bargaining unit or on or after the thirtieth (30th) day next following the effective date of this Agreement, whichever shall be later. Such fee may be paid by payroll deduction if so authorized pursuant to an Agency Service Fee Deduction Authorization; provided, however, that such authorization shall be deemed to have effect only with respect to such sum as is herein provided. Any other provisions of this Agreement to the contrary notwithstanding, every unit member who shall have failed to fulfill the condition of employment as is herein prescribed shall be subject to immediate dismissal and shall be so dismissed by the Employer with effect no later than the end of the semester during which the Employer shall have acted to dismiss the unit member in accordance with the provisions of this Article; provided, however, that such dismissal shall be effected by notice promptly issued by the Employer or its designee to such unit member after the Association shall have notified the President that such unit member has not fulfilled the condition herein prescribed. The said notice shall be sent by registered mail, return receipt requested, and shall give such unit member fourteen (14) days from the date of its receipt to fulfill the said condition. Within the said fourteen (14) days, the Employer or its designees shall grant such unit member such opportunity to respond to the said notice as the Employer may from time to time prescribe for the purposes of this provision. Whenever such unit member shall not have fulfilled the condition herein prescribed within the said fourteen (14) days, the Employer shall act to dismiss the unit member at its meeting next following the expiration of the said fourteen (14) days; provided, however, that the Employer need not so act if such unit member fulfills the said condition prior to the date of such meeting. The Association shall reimburse the Employer for any expenses incurred as a result of being ordered to reinstate an employee terminated at the request of the Association for not paying the agency fee. The Association shall intervene in and defend any administrative or court litigation with respect to any unit member's refusal or failure to pay the agency service fee, including, but not limited to, actions or claims arising from an employee's termination or dismissal. In such litigation, the Employer shall have no obligation to defend the Association and the Association shall indemnify and hold the Employer harmless from any loss occasioned by such litigation. Any unit member who pays an agency service fee may on request obtain a rebate of part of that unit member’s agency service fee in accordance with General Laws, Chapter 150E, Section 12, and Association procedures.
