Corporation "Contract Manager" role. Can it cancel others' contracts?

I'm trying to build a corporation of haulers and traders and working on setting up my roles so people have the tools they need to work with corporate contracts.

If I give someone the "Contract Manager" role, can another contract manager cancel his contracts? If I take a courier mission with a 1b collateral, can another contract manager cancel it, costing me a billion?

The way I have it configured currently is assigning roles and wallet divisions separately to different people. My understanding is that each member will ONLY be able to work within his designated wallet, but I'm worried about the potential for harassment should someone less than totally honest join in.

Thanks in advance for the answer!

free bump:

Interesting Question. I can try it out and will re-post if someone more knowledgable doesn't answer it sooner.

Well I tested it myself.

Contract manager role can fail any contract assigned to the corporation, even one attached to a wallet division the manager does not have access to.

The scenario:
I gave someone in my corp contract manager, junior accountant, trader, and wallet division 5 access.
I accepted a contract on behalf of my corporation using master wallet, and had him try to fail it.
It failed successfully.

My goal was to have a corp of 5 or 6 haulers, all hauling by accepting public contracts on behalf of the corporation, with access to their own division wallets. Sadly, the risk associated with one member cancelling another's contract just isn't worth the headaches and I'll have to come up with something else.
