The call for public proposals must also be published in a newspaper circulated in the territory of any municipal body or school board that is a party to the agreement or, if it is not circulated therein, in a publication specialized in the field and sold mainly in Québec.
The call for public proposals may stipulate that more than one proposal may be selected. It may also stipulate that only proposals meeting one of the following conditions will be considered:
(1)  the proposals are submitted by contractors or suppliers, in addition to contractors or suppliers having an establishment in Québec, who have an establishment in a province or territory covered by an intergovernmental trade liberalization agreement applicable to any municipal body or school board that is a party to the agreement; or
(2)  the goods concerned are produced in a territory that includes Québec and any other province or territory referred to in subparagraph 1.
