i) if there is a mower(s), other than the Toro 5900D, that meets the general requirements AND the local sales and service requirement, the City may conduct pre-qualification performance and operational testing on that unit(s) prior to commencing the formal bid process
ii) if there are no other mowers that meet the general requirements and the local sales and service requirement, the City reserves the right to negotiate directly on a sole source basis for the acquisition of a Toro 5900D.http://vendor.purchasingconnection.ca/Opportunity.aspx?Guid=B5295B4A-7F97-40F8-AB28-8C623ADDC25E
