(a) The Department of General Services, acting for the state, shall, negotiate and establish a model contract with standard contract provisions with the Regents of the University of California and a model contract with standard contract provisions with the Trustees of the California State University by July 1, 2010. The trustees shall, and the regents are urged to, negotiate and establish with the Department of General Services the model contract applicable to their university by July 1, 2010.

(c) In implementing this section, the Department of General Services may use the services of any state agency, as that term is defined in Section 11000 of the Government Code.

(d) The Department of General Services and the University of California or the California State University, in consultation with state agencies and departments that have contracts with the University of California or the California State University, may determine those types of contracts for which the use of the model contract would be inappropriate or inadequate.
