THIS CONSULTING AGREEMENT (this “Agreement”) is made and entered into as of the 4th day of March, 2011, by and between DYNAMIC RATINGS, INC., a Wisconsin corporation ("DRI") and TELKONET, INC., a Utah corporation (“Consultant”).



Pursuant to an Asset Purchase Agreement, between DRI and Consultant, dated the same date as this Agreement, DRI has agreed to purchase certain assets from Consultant, and to engage Consultant under the terms of this Agreement.


Consultant has agreed to provide DRI with assistance with the sale of Series 5 Power Line Carrier products (the “Products”) to the utility market, technical assistance, advice, and consulting with respect to the management and operation of DRI’s business, business principles employed, analysis of market conditions, and other matters which will maximize product sales and bring performance within the incentive payment levels that will provide payments to Consultant and expand the market presence of DRI (the “Services”).

NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the covenants set forth in this Agreement, and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are acknowledged, the parties agree as follows:


ENGAGEMENT. DRI engages Consultant to provide Services as reasonably requested from time to time by DRI. Consultant accepts this engagement, upon the terms and conditions of this Agreement.


DUTIES. Consultant agrees to use commercially reasonable efforts to perform the Services in a timely fashion. Unless otherwise expressly agreed to in writing, Consultant shall not be DRI’s agent for any purpose whatsoever and shall not be authorized to act for, financially commit, speak for, or represent DRI in any dealings with third parties. Consultant shall not have the authority or right to incur obligations of any kind in the name of or for the account of DRI, nor to commit or bind DRI to any contract and Consultant agrees that neither Consultant, nor its agents or employees, has nor will give the appearance or impression of possessing any legal authority to bind or commit DRI in any way.


TERM. The term of this Agreement shall be from the date first set forth above through March 31, 2013.


TERMINATION. This Agreement may be terminated by the mutual agreement of  the parties.  Either party shall have the right to terminate this Agreement upon a

material default by the other party of its obligations hereunder for a period of 30 days after written notice to perform any of its obligations under this Agreement.


PAYMENT. For Services under this Agreement, DRI will provide Consultant with Compensation (the “Consulting Compensation”):


25% of DRI’s sales revenues of Products, excluding sales to Consultant from the date of this Agreement through March 31, 2012;


25% of DRI’s sales revenues of Products, excluding sales to Consultant from April 1, 2012 through March 31, 2013;


The total value of the Consulting Compensation, when combined with the Sales Incentive amounts calculated under the Distributorship Agreement dated the same date as  this Agreement, shall not exceed $700,000.00; and


The Consulting Compensation shall be calculated and applied by DRI to the Promissory Note of Consultant to Manufacturer, dated the same date as this Agreement, in the original principal amount of $700,000, on June 30, 2012 and on June 30, 2013.


DRI shall keep and maintain, at its regular place of business, full, true and accurate records and books of account of all its sale of Products.  Such books and records shall be maintained in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and, solely with respect to the sale of Products, shall be subject to audit by Consultant or its authorized representative upon reasonable prior notice and not more than once in a calendar year, during DRI’s regular business hours.  Consultant shall be responsible for all costs and expenses of such audit, unless the audit shows an underpayment of at least five percent (5%) of the total amount due for the audited period, in which case DRI shall bear the costs and expenses of the audit.  All such books of account and records shall be kept available for two (2) years after termination of this Agreement.


INDEPENDENT CONTRACTOR. In the performance of all Services under this Agreement, Consultant acknowledges that Consultant’s relationship with DRI shall be as an independent contractor. No relationship of employer-employee, principal-agent, lessor-lessee, partnership or joint venture is created by this Agreement, and Consultant or its agents or employees shall not have any claim under this Agreement as a third-party beneficiary, employee or otherwise against DRI for any benefits provided to DRI’s employees, including but not limited to: vacation pay, sick leave, retirement benefits or other employment benefits of any kind. As an independent contractor, Consultant shall be solely responsible for all income, self-employment, social security, Medicare, unemployment or other federal or state withholding or taxes applicable to compensation paid to Consultant under this Agreement.



INSURANCE. Consultant agrees to maintain insurance that will fully protect Consultant and DRI from any and all claims of any kind or nature for the damage to property, or any personal property or personal injury, including death, by Consultant from the activities carried out under this Agreement by Consultant. Consultant further agrees to maintain automobile liability insurance to fully protect Consultant and DRI for bodily injury and property damage claims arising out of the ownership, maintenance, or use of owned, hired or non-owned vehicles used by Consultant while providing Services.


EXPENSES. Consultant represents that it maintains a separate business with its own office, equipment and materials and has recurring business liabilities or obligations. DRI shall not be liable to Consultant for any expenses paid or incurred by Consultant in connection with Consultant’s provision of the Services.


PAYMENT OF TAXES. DRI will not withhold taxes or other employment-related withholdings from any payments made under this Agreement. Consultant will be solely responsible for the payment of all taxes, social security contributions and all similar obligations and income taxes. Consultant will complete and provide to DRI an IRS Form W-9.


CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION. Consultant shall hold in confidence at all times after the date of this Agreement all data or information of DRI that is valuable to the business of DRI and not generally known to competitors (“Confidential Information”), as well as all Trade Secrets (defined below) (the Confidential Information and Trade Secrets comprise DRI’s “Proprietary Information”). Consultant shall not disclose, publish or make use of Proprietary Information at any time after the date of this Agreement without the prior written consent of DRI, except as necessary for Consultant to perform its obligations under this Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the confidentiality obligations of this Section 10 shall not apply to information that is required to be disclosed pursuant to an order of a judicial authority or governmental entity having competent jurisdiction (provided Consultant provides DRI with reasonable prior written notice of the order) or can be shown to have been generally available to the public at the time of disclosure to Consultant, other than as a result of a breach of this Section 10.

use and (ii) is the subject of efforts by DRI that are reasonable under the circumstances to maintain its secrecy.


NECESSITY. Consultant agrees that the covenant outlined in Section 10 of this Agreement is reasonable and necessary for the protection of DRI’s interests in its business.
