be at the sole discretion of Service New Brunswick.

the detailed contract negotiations not be completed in a reasonable period of
time, the Province reserves the right to discontinue negotiations with the vendor
subsequently enter into negotiations with the second preferred vendor.

be assigned or delegated without the prior consent of the Strategic Procurement
