It had a definite term of 3 years. We've been doing these 3 year terms for 12-15 years now. We always had a new contract in place before the old one expired. With budget appropriations and new vendor payment approval processes the state is back logged with contract approvals. We continued to provide the services but until there is an approved contract they cant pay us. We continue in good faith assuming that the terms of the old contract are implied. If they decide to not renew the contract what am I entitled to legally.
They want us to continue but no verbal assurances that the contract would extend. It needs to go through comptrollers Office and they dont speak to vendors. Our contacts cant really say what will happen.
