Gap shall assume such lease obligations (or pay for the applicable lease buy-out) if obligated to do so in

Gap shall execute such documents as necessary for Supplier to be relieved of Suppliers obligations under such assumed leases after the transfer date. In the case of leases entered into specifically to provide the Services, Supplier shall use commercially reasonable efforts to obtain such rights in advance and shall not enter into any such lease not offering such rights without Gaps prior written consent, which shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed (provided that the withholding of consent shall not preclude Supplier from then using a lease not entered into specifically for this engagement to acquire such Equipment). In all cases, such owned or leased Equipment shall be transferred in good working condition, reasonable wear and tear excepted, as of the expiration or termination date or the completion of any Services associated with such Equipment requested by Gap under this Agreement, whichever is later. In the case of Supplier-owned equipment, Supplier shall grant to Gap a warranty of title and a warranty that such Equipment is free and clear of all liens and encumbrances. Such conveyance by Supplier to Gap shall be at net book value (not to exceed fair market value at the time placed in service) calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles using the depreciation schedule customarily used by Supplier for the applicable type of equipment (including equipment dedicated to Supplier internal use, used at shared Supplier service facilities and dedicated to specific Supplier customers). In the case of leased Equipment, Supplier shall represent and warrant that the lease is not in default and that all payments thereunder have been made through the date of transfer.
E. Supplier shall return to Gap, if not previously returned, all Gap Equipment, in condition at least as good as the condition thereof on the Reference Date, ordinary wear and tear excepted. Such Equipment shall be returned at the expiration or termination date or the completion of any Services or Termination Assistance Services associated with such Equipment requested by Gap under this Agreement, whichever is later.
F. Supplier shall inform Gap of Subcontracts or Third Party Vendor contracts primarily dedicated by Supplier, Supplier Subcontractors or Supplier Affiliates to perform the Services. Gap shall retain the right to contract directly with any such Subcontractor or Third Party Vendor. In addition, Supplier shall use commercially reasonable efforts to provide Gap with the right to contract directly with any Subcontractor or Third Party Vendor previously utilized by Supplier to perform any Services or to assume Suppliers contract with such Subcontractor or Third Party Vendor.
G. In the event that Supplier is able to obtain the right for Gap to assume such Subcontracts and Third Party Vendor contracts in accordance with the Subsection (F) above, Supplier shall assign the designated Subcontracts and Third Party Vendor contracts to Gap or its designee as of the expiration or termination date or the completion of any Services associated with such Subcontracts or Third Party Vendor contracts, whichever is later. There shall be no charge or fee imposed by Supplier on Gap related to such assignment and Supplier shall use commercially reasonable efforts to minimize or eliminate any such charges or fees imposed by any Subcontractors or Third Party Vendor. To the extent charges or fees are imposed by any Subcontractors or Third Party Vendor, such costs shall be paid by Gap. Supplier shall (i) represent and warrant that it is not in default of such Subcontracts and Third Party Vendor contracts; (ii) represent and warrant that all payments have been made thereunder through the date of assignment; and (iii) notify Gap of any defaults by Subcontractors or Third Party Vendor contractors with respect to such Subcontracts and Third Party Vendor contracts of which Supplier is then aware. Subject to Suppliers compliance with the requirements of this subsection, Gap shall represent and warrant to Supplier that, from the date of assumption, it will assume all contractual responsibilities and liability associated with such Subcontracts and Third Party Vendor contract assigned to Gap hereunder.
