Cotton socks are more than a necessity. The really good ones are a true luxury! Of course, we all need to wear cotton socks. They provide warmth and protection. Yes, most business planning is boring with a capital B and a really long “O” but that is because most planning mechanisms and information on the topic is intellectually based and they have you planning at a level of logic business, marketing, operational procedure, organizational structure, customer service, accounting when we plan these things we are mostly adult minded and leave the excitement, the passion out of it. So when it is done the traditional way, you left with a stack of paper, a business plan that bores you and leaves you uninspired. That to me is a waste of time.
It was surreal. They were all repeating the jokes. Except Jason Orange, who said he hadn’t watched his.’. “I was on the board of directors at the time and what I can tell you is that the board of directors was not aware, and the minute we did become aware we took the actions you saw us take back in March 2012 against the senior leadership, including Mr. Ben Assa,” Stevenson said. Ben Assa also claims SNC arranged an evening for Saadi Gadhafi during a 2009 trip to the Toronto International Film Festival where American rapper 50 Cent was invited to perform for an audience that included company employees.The charges stem from an RCMP investigation alleging SNC Lavalin paid $47.7 million in bribes to public officials during Moammar Gadhafi rule in Libya.It also charged the company, its construction division and its SNC Lavalin International subsidiary with one charge each of fraud and one of corruption for allegedly defrauding various Libyan organizations of about $129.8 million.So far the charges haven stopped SNC from bidding on and winning some of the largest contracts in the country, such as managing the consortium that will build the $4.2 billion Champlain Bridge replacement in Montreal.However, the company is not quite out of the woods when it comes to bidding on contracts after the trial.The risk still remains that SNC could be found guilty on the corruption charges and a possible 10 year ban from bidding on public contracts that would come with that verdict still looms over the company.still believe that the likelihood of debarment for SNC in Canada is a small probability, especially when the Federal government continues to award multi billion dollar contracts to the company, said Dundee Capital Markets analyst Maxim Sytchev in a research note Thursday.Under the new rules, the government could also immediately suspend any company charged, so SNC says it wanted to be sure it wouldn be suspended and entered into talks on an administrative agreement.SNC wants to take these changes further and has been advocating for a Deferred Prosecution Agreement that would include replacing the bidding ban with an option to pay a fine.to the admin agreement SNC faced uncertainty regarding being able to bid on government work post the implementation of the new procurement guidelines as discussed in prior publications, Sytchev said.
