What about a base plus option setup?

Meaning a base contract of three years plus an option for two years?
The same problem you have today is present with that contract. The vendor cannot amortize any fixed expense of the contract over the option years.
So if the BoD contracted me to take over internet service at all resorts, I can only amortize the ramp-up costs over three years. Otherwise I take a beating if you don't exercise your option. I think in those contracts you end up over-paying in year 4+. It is what we see with cell phone providers.
