Business Associate Agreement Government

We agree with the result sought by the commenter and achieve this by ensuring that such disclosures of whistleblowing by counterparties and other parties do not constitute a violation of this rule by the covered company. If the covered entity is a governmental authority, we believe that the requirement for satisfactory collateral is met if another law contains requirements that apply to the counterparty and that meet each of the objectives of the counterparty agreement. We are aware that, in some cases, the companies concerned, which are government authorities, may impose the requirements of this section directly on persons acting as business partners.
