45.1 Approval Required
Gap has relied, in entering into this Agreement, on the reputation of, and on obtaining the personal performance of, Supplier itself and Supplier Approved Subcontractors listed in Exhibit D.23 (Subcontractors). Consequently, no performance of this Agreement, or any additional portion thereof, shall be subcontracted by Supplier without the prior written consent of Gap. Any attempt by Supplier to subcontract any performance, obligation, or responsibility under this Agreement, without the prior written consent of Gap, shall be null and void and shall constitute a material breach of this Agreement.
Notwithstanding the above, Supplier may, in the ordinary course of business, subcontract (i) for third party services or products that are not a material portion of the Services, that are

not exclusively dedicated to Gap and that do not include regular direct contact with Gap or Gap Affiliate personnel or the performance of Services at Gap sites, or (ii) with temporary personnel firms for the provision of temporary contract labor (collectively, Shared Subcontractors); provided, that such Shared Subcontractors possess the training and experience, competence and skill to perform the work in a skilled and professional manner. Gap shall have no approval right with respect to such Shared Subcontractors. If, however, Gap expresses dissatisfaction with the services of a Shared Subcontractor, Supplier shall work in good faith to resolve Gaps concerns on a mutually acceptable basis and, at Gap request, replace such Shared Subcontractor at no additional cost to Gap.
