No, I don't believe so, but, if I need to come back on that, I will. This is a pilot program for a short period of time that was able to be agreed to under an existing arrangement with Microsoft. In that regard, there are opportunities for us to learn from this product. In addition, there are some opportunities around training, onboarding, implementation and assistance for participating agencies. We are looking to learn and partner on issues around generative AI. I have no doubt that this pilot on Microsoft 365 Copilot will be informative of further decisions the government takes in this regard. But I also repeat the fact that we are trying to get an understanding of what is out in the market as well. There will be a lot of opportunities in this area.
