Irrespective of who is giving the "mandate", if we draw a line between full
complete rebidding at regular intervals (every X years) and contract in

Isn't the fundamental choice here around what is the default option, a
little bit like the opt-in / opt out choice in many other issues, ie
- either the mandate dropping at regular intervals unless it is explicitly
- the mandate continuing by default unless it is cancelled because of
