The Isle of Anglesey County Council is not obliged to accept any submissions or enter into any contract pursuant to the Tender and reserves the right in its absolute discretion to withdraw from or terminate the process set out in this PQQ at any time, for any reason and without prior notice to the Applicants and at its sole discretion re-invite proposals on the same or any alternative basis. Nothing in this PQQ is to be construed as implying commitment by the Isle of Anglesey County Council that it will award a contract. Any expenditure, work or effort undertaken is accordingly a matter solely for the commercial judgement of the Applicants.
