              The University reserves the right to reject any or all Proposals received and to accept any Proposal
              which it considers advantageous, whether or not it is the lowest priced Proposal. The University is
              under no obligation to award an order, and reserves the right to terminate the tender process at any
              time, and to withdraw from discussions with all or any of the Tenderers who have responded. Any
              proposal not supported by the information requested in the tender document, or not complying with the

              tender process at any time before or after closing without providing reasons for such cancellation.
              Rejection of all Proposals will mean that the University, in its own best interest at the time, has
              determined not to pursue the issue.

              In order to obtain the most advantageous offer for the University, the University reserves the right in
              its sole discretion:
               To waive irregularities and/or minor non-compliance by any Tenderer with the requirements,
                   specifications and terms and conditions of the tender document;
               To request clarification and/or further information from one or more Tenderers after closing
                   without becoming obligated to offer the same opportunity to all Tenderers; and
               Negotiate with the Tenderer selected as finalist to ensure that the best value is being obtained by
                   the University.

              The University reserves also the right to award the work on the basis of initial proposals received,
              without negotiations.

              Tenderers are advised however to submit a complete offer as their bid. Any waiver, clarification or
              negotiation will not be considered as an opportunity for Tenderers to correct errors in their bids.

2.16          Omissions and Discrepancies
              Should the Tenderers find any errors or omissions in the Tender Document, or doubt the meaning of

3.19          Resolution of Dispute
              Any controversy, claim, dispute or disagreement (―Dispute‖) arising out of or relating to this

              accordance with the rules of the Civil Code of Quebec and the Code of Civil Procedure of Quebec.
              The following procedures shall apply to any Dispute between the parties.
              First, in the event of any Dispute arising from or relating to this Agreement, the parties hereto shall use
              their best efforts to settle the Dispute. To this effect, they shall consult and negotiate with one another
              in good faith and, recognizing their mutual interests, attempt to reach a just and equitable solution
              satisfactory to both parties. If they do not reach such solution within a period of fifteen (15) days,
              then, upon notice by either party to the other the Dispute shall be placed in the hands of a mediator.
              Mediation. Secondly, following the failure of negotiations between the parties, they shall endeavour in
              good faith promptly to identify a single person of experience and good reputation who shall assist the
              parties and attempt to reach a mutually acceptable resolution. Such mediation shall terminate upon the
              decision of the mediator that the parties are not able to reach a common accord, or after thirty (30)
              days, whichever first occurs, unless the mediator reasonably believes that the parties are close to a
              settlement and extends the thirty-day period.
              Arbitration. If mediation fails, or if the parties are unable to agree upon a mediator, then either party
              (the ―Complainant‖) may commence binding arbitration by giving the other party (the ―Respondent‖)
              notice in writing (―Notice of Arbitration‖) setting out in reasonable detail the nature of its claim and
              the relief sought and naming a single person of experience and good reputation to act as the arbitrator.
              Within twenty-one (21) days of receipt of a Notice of Arbitration, the Respondent shall give the
              Complainant notice in writing of its response to the claim, together with a detailed description of any
              cross-demand; a recital of the relief sought; and accepting or refusing the Complainant‘s proposed
              arbitrator.
              In the event that the parties are unable to mutually agree to a neutral arbitrator, the parties or their
              attorneys may seek guidance from the Superior Court of Quebec.
              Consistent with the expedited nature of this arbitration process, each party will, upon the written
              request of the other party, promptly provide the other with copies of documents relevant to the issues
              raised by any claim or cross-demand on which the producing party may rely in support of or in
              opposition to any claim or defence. Any dispute regarding discovery, or the relevance or scope
              thereof, shall be determined by the arbitrator, and its determination shall be conclusive. All discovery
              shall be completed within sixty (60) days following the appointment of the arbitrator, unless the
              arbitrator provides further time to the parties.
              The arbitration proceedings shall take place in Montréal.
              The available relief shall include damages and other relief to the extent permitted under the laws in
              force in Quebec and under the terms of this Agreement.
              The final decision of the arbitrator (the ―Award‖) shall be issued within three (3) months of the
              termination of the arbitration proceedings.
              Each party to the proceedings shall pay its own costs in connection with the proceedings, and the
              parties shall share equally the costs of the proceedings, including the fees of the arbitrator, except that
              the arbitrator may award costs, including attorneys‘ fees, to the prevailing party.

             workshop drawing are to be provided prior to approval. The first page of the workshop drawings must
             be used to identify the Tenderer and the project.

             All workshop drawings must be submitted at the same time.

             The workshop drawings must provide all the relevant information for the work or the product which
             they describe. If information un-related to the project is present on the drawings, the Tenderer must
             precisely annotate the drawing to distinguish the information which he wants to convey. These
             annotations must be reproducible on a photocopier.

             The Tenderer must answer all questions, supplement his workshop drawings, submit a different
             product or re-submit a drawing, according to the indications which will be given to him on the
             workshop drawings with accompanying notes until all the workshop drawings are approved.

             Once all of the workshop drawings have been approved, the Tenderer must produce five copies and
             keep the originals to serve as part of the ―as-built‖ documentation (section 4.6.1). The copies must be
             given to the designated representative of the University. Also, the Tenderer must at all times keep one
             copy on the building site and another copy at his offices.

             The approval of a workshop drawing for a product or work does not release the Tenderer of its
             responsibility vis-à-vis this product or work. It falls to the Tenderer to ensure for each product of its
             compliance, availability, compatibility, and performance with the plans and estimates.

            connect to the Main/Intermediate Cross-connect.

            The Main/Intermediate Cross-connect subsystem, which is generally located in the telecommunications
            room (TR).

            The Campus subsystem, which provides the inter-building cabling to link the Main Cross-connect in
            the central campus building to the Intermediate Cross-connect(s) in the satellite building(s) on campus.


4.5.3       Work Areas
