9) Under separate cover, provide two (2) hard copies of a proposed fee for completing the Scope of Services, including the basis for the calculation of that fee.

NOTE: 
The selected broker will be responsible for marketing DASNY’s program to insurance carriers.  DASNY reserves the right to inquire as to the respondent’s preferred markets at any time during the procurement process.  However, such inquiries should not be considered a promise of assignment or authorization to approach those markets, or any markets, on behalf of DASNY.  

DASNY prefers to compensate insurance brokers on a fee basis, but commissions will be considered upon request.  In either case, the broker will be required to disclose all sources of revenue to be earned by the broker and/or its affiliated organizations in association with the placement of the insurance programs and/or any services provided in association with those programs.
