The applicant’s Expression of Interest that best meets the requirements of the City, is the absolute discretion of the City in consultation with the Review Panel, will be designated as the preferred organization.
No obligation will arise until the Service Agreement Amendment, based on the accepted Expression of Interest application, has been authorized and executed by the appropriate City authority.
After receipt of Expression of Interest applications and at any time prior to the execution of an agreement, the City may request clarification on any items related to the Expression of Interest and conduct negotiations with the preferred organization.
