Statement by Dean Brinton, CEO, The Rooms

“In attempting to explain language used in a recent Request for Proposals, The Rooms regrets and apologizes for the use of a misleading example. I hope that the following will clarify the relationship between The Rooms Corporation and the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador. As a Crown corporation, The Rooms Corporation has been established at “arm’s length” from government and has a significant degree of flexibility and autonomy. Accordingly, the government does not express an opinion, for or against, the exhibitions and programs presented by The Rooms from year to year or otherwise interfere in its programming. The Rooms used an open and transparent process for the awarding of a contract, with requests evaluated based on merit.”
