PUBLIC CALL FOR TENDERS
DIVISION I
GENERAL
3. A public call for tenders must be made in accordance with the provisions of this Chapter.
If a public body makes a public call for tenders to award a contract involving an expenditure below the public tender threshold referred to in subparagraph 1 of the first paragraph of section 10 of the Act, the tender closing date set out in subparagraph 6 of the second paragraph of section 4, the requirement as to the place of the establishment set out in subparagraph 2 of the first paragraph of section 6, the time for sending an addendum set out in the second paragraph of section 9 and the composition of the selection committee provided for in the second paragraph of section 26 may differ.
In the case of a contract referred to in Chapter III, the public call for tenders must comply with the special provisions of that chapter.
O.C. 533-2008, s. 3.
DIVISION II
TENDER DOCUMENTS
4. Every public call for tenders is made by publishing a notice on the electronic tendering system.
The notice forms part of the tender documents and must specify and contain
(1)  the name of the public body;
(2)  a brief description of the services required and the expected duration of the contract or the calendar for the provision of the services;
(2.1)  if applicable, a brief description of the options;
(3)  the nature and amount of any required tender security;
(4)  whether or not an intergovernmental agreement within the meaning of section 2 of the Act applies;
(5)  the place where information may be obtained;
(5.1)  a mention that the tender documents may only be obtained through the electronic tendering system;
(5.2)  if applicable, an indication that tenders may be transmitted electronically and that such transmission may only be done through the electronic tendering system;
(6)  the place as well as the closing and opening dates and times, the closing date being not less than 15 days after the date on which the notice is published; and
(7)  the fact that the public body is not bound to accept any tender.
For the purposes of this Regulation, “option” means an option to renew or an option concerning additional services of the same nature as those initially required, offered at the same price and intended to fulfil the needs referred to in subparagraph 2 of the second paragraph.
O.C. 533-2008, s. 4; O.C. 680-2011, s. 1; O.C. 430-2013, s. 1; 293-2016O.C. 293-2016, s. 3; S.Q. 2018, c. 10, s. 18.
5. In its tender documents, a public body must provide
(1)  a description of the procurement requirements and conditions on which the contract is to be carried out;
(1.1)  if applicable, the description of the options;
(2)  (paragraph revoked);
(3)  the eligibility requirements of service providers and the compliance requirements for tenders;
(4)  a list of the documents or other items required from service providers;
(5)  the tender opening procedure;
(6)  where a quality evaluation of tenders is to be made, the evaluation rules, including the criteria selected and, for the purposes of Schedule 2, their respective weighting;
(7)  the contract award rule, including any calculation to be applied before awarding the contract;
(8)  the contract to be signed; and
(9)  any other particular required under this Regulation.
O.C. 533-2008, s. 5; O.C. 430-2013, s. 2; 293-2016O.C. 293-2016, s. 4.
6. In order to submit a tender, a service provider must meet the following eligibility requirements:
(1)  have all the necessary qualifications, authorizations, permits, licences, registrations, certificates, accreditations and attestations;
(2)  have in Québec or in a territory covered by an applicable intergovernmental agreement an establishment where activities are carried on on a permanent basis, clearly identified under the service provider’s name and accessible during regular business hours; and
(3)  meet any other eligibility requirement specified in the tender documents.
Despite subparagraph 2 of the first paragraph, if competition is insufficient, the public body may make eligible any service provider that has an establishment in a territory not covered by an applicable intergovernmental agreement, provided that the public body so specifies in the tender documents.
A service provider who fails to comply with any of those requirements is ineligible.
O.C. 533-2008, s. 6.
7. Compliance requirements must specify the cases that will entail the automatic rejection of a tender, namely
(1)  subject to the third paragraph of section 12, the closing date and time for receiving tenders have not been complied with and, in the case of a tender sent in paper form, non-compliance with the place designated for its reception;
(2)  the absence of the document evidencing the tenderer’s undertaking or of the document related to the tendered price or, in the case of a tender sent in paper form, the required signature of an authorized person is missing on any of those documents;
(3)  the tender is conditional or restrictive;
(4)  in the case of a tender transmitted electronically, the fact that the tender was not transmitted through the electronic tendering system or a tender that is unintelligible, infected or otherwise illegible once its integrity has been established by the electronic tendering system;
(5)  the fact that the price submitted and the quality demonstration are not presented separately as required by section 16, where applicable; and
(6)  any other compliance requirement stated in the tender documents as entailing the automatic rejection of a tender has not been complied with.
Compliance requirements must also specify that the filing by a service provider of several tenders for the same call for tenders entails automatic rejection of all the service provider’s tenders. For the purposes of this paragraph, transmitting the same tender by electronic means and on paper form is considered as the filing of several tenders.
O.C. 533-2008, s. 7; O.C. 430-2013, s. 3; 293-2016O.C. 293-2016, s. 5; S.Q. 2018, c. 10, s. 19.
7.0.1. Compliance requirements must also indicate that, in the case of a tender transmitted electronically whose integrity has not been ascertained, failure to remedy that irregularity within 2 business days following the default notice sent by the public body entails rejection of the tender.
A tender transmitted electronically within the period set in the first paragraph to remedy the faulty integrity of a tender sent previously is substituted for the previous tender as soon as its integrity is ascertained by the public body. That tender is then deemed to have been transmitted before the tender closing date and time.
293-2016O.C. 293-2016, s. 6.
7.1. Compliance requirements must also specify that a tender with an unusually low price is non-compliant and must be rejected, after authorization from the chief executive officer of the public body pursuant to Division IV.1 of this Chapter.
O.C. 430-2013, s. 4.
8. Provided that it is specified in the tender documents, a public body may refuse to consider any service provider who, in the 2 years preceding the tender opening date, has been given an unsatisfactory performance report by the public body, failed to follow up on a tender or contract or has had a contract cancelled because of failure to comply with the contract conditions.
O.C. 533-2008, s. 8.
9. A public body may amend the tender documents by means of an addendum sent to the service providers concerned.
If the amendment is likely to affect the prices, the addendum must be sent at least 7 days before the tender closing time; if that 7-day period cannot be complied with, the closing time must be extended by the number of days needed to ensure compliance with the minimum period.
Provided that it is specified in the tender documents, the public body may reserve the right to not consider a request for details made by a service provider if the request is sent to the public body less than 2 business days before the tender closing date and time.
O.C. 533-2008, s. 9; O.C. 680-2011, s. 2; 293-2016O.C. 293-2016, s. 7.

SERVICE CONTRACTS OF A TECHNICAL NATURE
§ 1.  — Calling for and opening of tenders
10. A public body solicits solely a price to award a service contract of a technical nature.
O.C. 533-2008, s. 10.
10.1. If a tender is transmitted electronically, the public body must, at the opening of tenders, ascertain the integrity of the tender through the electronic tendering system.
293-2016O.C. 293-2016, s. 9.
11. Tenders are opened by the public body at a public opening in the presence of a witness at the designated place and on the date and time fixed in the tender documents, unless the tenders are in the form of a price list whose scope or layout does not make it possible to specify a total price.
At the public opening, the public body discloses the names of all the service providers, including the name of any provider who transmitted electronically a tender whose integrity has not been ascertained, although such information is subject to verification.
The public body also discloses, subject to the same verification, the respective total price of the tenders. Despite the foregoing, if the integrity of at least one tender transmitted electronically could not be ascertained at the opening, such disclosure takes place instead at the time of the publication provided for in the fourth paragraph.
The public body publishes, within 4 business days, the result of the public opening in the electronic tendering system.
O.C. 533-2008, s. 11; I.N. 2016-01-01 (NCCP); 293-2016O.C. 293-2016, s. 10.
§ 2.  — Evaluation of tenders and contract awarding
12. The public body evaluates the tenders received, ensuring that the service providers are eligible and their tenders are compliant.
If the public body rejects a tender because the provider is ineligible or the tender is non-compliant, it must so inform the service provider and give the reason for the rejection no later than 15 days after awarding the contract.
A tender received after the closing date and time for receiving tenders may not, for that sole reason, be considered non-compliant if the delay is attributable solely to the public body.
O.C. 533-2008, s. 12; S.Q. 2018, c. 10, s. 20.
13. A public body awards the contract to the service provider who submits the lowest price.
O.C. 533-2008, s. 13.
14. If several service providers obtain identical results following a call for tenders, the contract is awarded by a drawing of lots.
O.C. 533-2008, s. 14.
15. The public body awards the contract on the basis of the procurement requirements described and the rules established in the tender documents and according to the price submitted.
The public body may, however, negotiate the price submitted and the price stipulated in the contract may be less than the price submitted if
(1)  at the end of the tendering process, only one service provider submitted a compliant tender;
(2)  the service provider agreed to a new price; and
(3)  it is the only change made to the conditions set out in the tender documents or to the tender in the course of the negotiation.
O.C. 533-2008, s. 15; O.C. 293-2016, s. 11.
15.1. The contract is awarded when the tenderer is chosen by the public body or, as the case may be, when the drawing of lots takes place.
O.C. 430-2013, s. 5.
DIVISION IV
PROFESSIONAL SERVICE CONTRACTS
§ 1.  — Calling for and opening of tenders
16. A public body must evaluate the quality of a tender to award a professional service contract; the public body must request a price, if required, and a quality demonstration based on predetermined evaluation criteria.

O.C. 533-2008, s. 16.
17. The provisions of section 10.1 apply to a professional service contract.
The public body publicly opens the tenders in the presence of a witness at the designated place and on the closing date and time fixed in the tender documents.
At the public opening, the public body discloses the names of all the service providers, including the name of any provider who transmitted electronically a tender whose integrity has not been ascertained, although such information is subject to verification.
The public body publishes, within 4 business days, the result of the public opening in the electronic tendering system.
O.C. 533-2008, s. 17; O.C. 430-2013, s. 6; 293-2016O.C. 293-2016, s. 12.
§ 2.  — Evaluation of tenders and contract awarding
18. The provisions of section 12 apply to professional service contracts.
O.C. 533-2008, s. 18.
19. The public body must evaluate the quality of tenders as provided in Schedule 1 or Schedule 2, as the case may be.
O.C. 533-2008, s. 19.
20. Where an evaluation is based on a minimum level of quality, the public body must apply the evaluation conditions in Schedule 1 and award the contract to the service provider who submitted the lowest price.
O.C. 533-2008, s. 20.
21. Where an evaluation is based on measurement of the level of quality followed by calculation of the price-quality ratio, the public body must apply the evaluation conditions in Schedule 2 and award the contract to the service provider who submitted the lowest adjusted price.
O.C. 533-2008, s. 21.
22. Where an evaluation is based solely on measurement of the level of quality, the public body must apply the evaluation conditions in sections 1 to 7 of Schedule 2 and award the contract to the service provider whose acceptable tender obtained the highest final score.

23. A public body may solicit only a quality demonstration if a tariff applicable to the contract concerned exists and has been established under an Act or approved by the Government or the Conseil du trésor.
O.C. 533-2008, s. 23.
24. Despite section 23, a public body must solicit only a quality demonstration to award an architecture or engineering contract, excluding a forest engineering contract.
O.C. 533-2008, s. 24; O.C. 873-2008; S.Q. 2018, c. 10, s. 21.
25. A public body may make a public call for tenders in 2 stages in order to award a contract.
At the first stage, the public body selects service providers by soliciting only a quality demonstration. The tender documents must indicate whether every selected service provider or only a limited number of them will be invited to take part in the second stage.
The public body opens the tenders only in the presence of the secretary of the selection committee or its representative at the designated place and on the date and time fixed in the tender documents and applies the provisions of section 10.1.
The public body evaluates the tenders received, ensuring that the service providers are eligible and their tenders are compliant.
The selection committee evaluates the quality of a tender according to the following conditions and procedure:
(1)  if all the selected service providers are invited to take part in the second stage, the quality of a tender is evaluated in accordance with the evaluation conditions in Schedule 1 and all the providers who meet at least the minimum quality level are retained;
(2)  if only a limited number of service providers are invited to take part in the second stage, the quality of a tender is evaluated in accordance with the evaluation conditions in sections 1 to 7 of Schedule 2 and only those who obtain the highest final scores are retained.
If the public body rejects a tender because the service provider is ineligible or the tender is non-compliant, the public body so informs the service provider and gives the reason for the rejection at the time of sending selected service providers their invitation to take part in the second stage.
The public body publishes in the electronic tendering system the names of the service providers who took part in the first stage within 4 working days following the public opening of the tenders filed during the second stage.
At the second stage, the public body invites the selected service providers to submit a tender that includes only a price or a quality demonstration with or without a price.
If only a price is required, sections 10 to 15.1 apply and, where the quality level of a tender is evaluated, sections 16 to 24 and 26 to 28 apply.
O.C. 533-2008, s. 25; O.C. 430-2013, s. 7; I.N. 2016-01-01 (NCCP); 293-2016O.C. 293-2016, s. 13.
26. Tenders are to be evaluated by a selection committee set up for that purpose by the public body. If a price is submitted, the committee must evaluate quality without knowing the price submitted.
The selection committee must be composed of a secretary in charge of coordinating activities and of at least 3 members.
O.C. 533-2008, s. 26.
27. The provisions of sections 14 to 15.1 apply to a professional service contract, except that the condition in subparagraph 1 of the second paragraph of section 15 is that only one service provider must have submitted an acceptable tender.
O.C. 533-2008, s. 27; O.C. 430-2013, s. 8.
28. The public body must inform each tenderer of the results of the tender quality evaluation for each of the stages including such evaluation in which the tenderer participated. Such communication takes place at the time of sending to the tenderers retained after the first stage an invitation to participate in the second stage or within 15 days of the contract awarding, as the case may be.
If Schedule 1 applies, the particulars sent to tenderers are
(1)  confirmation that their tender was accepted or not; and
(2)  as the case may be, the names of the tenderers qualified for the second stage or the name of and price submitted by the successful tenderer.
If Schedule 2 applies, the particulars sent to tenderers are
(1)  confirmation that their tender was accepted or not;
(2)  their quality score, their adjusted price and their rank according to the adjusted prices, where applicable; and
(3)  as the case may be, the names of the tenderers qualified for the second stage or the name, quality score and, where applicable, price of the successful tenderer, and the resulting adjusted price.
Moreover, on the written request of a tenderer sent within 30 days after the communication made under the first paragraph, the public body must present to the tenderer the results of the tender evaluation for each criterion used to evaluate the quality, and briefly set out the reasons justifying the fact that the tender was not accepted. That feedback must be provided, as the case may be, within 30 days after the date of receipt of the tenderer’s request if the request was sent after the awarding of the contract, or within 30 days after the awarding of the contract if the request was sent before that date.
O.C. 533-2008, s. 28; O.C. 873-2008; 293-2016O.C. 293-2016, s. 14.
29. Except for contracts for financial or banking services, section 16 and sections 18 to 28 apply where the public body evaluates the quality of a tender following an invitation to tender. However, the composition of the selection committee provided for in the second paragraph of section 26 may differ.
O.C. 533-2008, s. 29.
DIVISION IV.1
TENDERS WITH AN UNUSUALLY LOW PRICE
O.C. 430-2013, s. 9.
29.1. The price of a tender is unusually low if an extensive and documented analysis by the committee referred to in section 29.3 shows that the submitted price cannot enable the service provider to carry out the contract on the conditions set in the tender documents without jeopardizing the performance of the contract.
O.C. 430-2013, s. 9.
29.2. Where a public body observes that the price of a tender is unusually low, the public body requests to the service provider that it exposes in writing, within 5 days of receiving such request, the reasons warranting such price.
O.C. 430-2013, s. 9.
29.3. If the service provider fails to submit explanations within the time set in section 29.2 or if, despite the explanations provided, the public body still considers the price to seem unusually low, the public body forwards the tender to a committee set up for that purpose for analysis.
The committee is composed of the contract rules compliance monitor of the public body and at least 3 members designated by the chief executive officer of the public body who are not involved in the awarding process.
The contract rules compliance monitor supervises the committee’s work.
O.C. 430-2013, s. 9.
29.4. In analyzing the tender, the committee takes the following factors into account:
(1)  the gap between the tendered price and the public body’s estimate of the expenditure, which is confirmed by an adequate and rigorous audit;
(2)  the gap between the tendered price and the price tendered by the other service providers that have submitted a compliant tender;
(3)  the gap between the tendered price and the price paid by the public body, or by another public body, under a similar contract, taking into account the economic context; and
(4)  the representations made by the service provider concerning the existence of particular facts that have an influence on the tendered price, such as
(a)  the conditions for the carrying out of the services covered by the call for tenders;
(b)  the exceptionally favorable circumstances helping the service provider in the performance of the contract;
(c)  the innovative character of the tender;
(d)  the working conditions of the service provider’s employees or, if applicable, subcontractors; and
(e)  the government financial assistance received by the service provider.
O.C. 430-2013, s. 9.
29.5. The committee states in a report its conclusions and the reasons in support of the committee’s conclusions.
If the conclusions are that the tendered price is not unusually low, the contract rules compliance monitor sends a copy of the report to the chief executive officer of the public body.
If the conclusions are that the tendered price is unusually low, the contract rules compliance monitor sends a copy of the report to the service provider.
O.C. 430-2013, s. 9.
29.6. The service provider may, within 10 days of receiving the report referred to in section 29.5, send written comments to the contract rules compliance monitor of the public body.
O.C. 430-2013, s. 9.
29.7. Having taken cognizance of the comments, if any, the committee decides whether it upholds the conclusions of its report or not.
If the committee does not uphold the conclusions of its report, the contract rules compliance monitor sends a copy of the updated report to the chief executive officer of the public body.
If the committee upholds the conclusions of its report, the contract rules compliance monitor sends a copy of the updated report, if applicable, to the chief executive officer of the public body, who authorizes the rejection of the tender not later than before the expiry of the period of validity of tenders.
O.C. 430-2013, s. 9.
29.8. The public body informs the Conseil du trésor of the tenders rejected pursuant to this Division.

The authorization of the chief executive officer of the public body is required for every contract of a repetitive nature whose expected term, including any renewal, is greater than 3 years or, in the case of a contract referred to in the first paragraph of section 42.2, greater than 5 years. Despite the foregoing, the chief executive officer of the public body may not authorize a task order contract whose expected term, including any renewal, is greater than 5 years.
That authorization is also required before entering into a contract involving an expenditure equal to or above the public tender threshold if
(1)  only one service provider submitted a compliant tender; or
(2)  only one service provider submitted an acceptable tender following a quality evaluation.
In the case provided for in subparagraph 2 of the second paragraph, the selection committee must not know the price and the chief executive officer of the public body is to determine whether or not the awarding process should be continued.
O.C. 533-2008, s. 46; O.C. 430-2013, s. 14; O.C. 482-2014, s. 2.

AFFIRMATIVE ACTION PROGRAM
47. This Division applies only to public bodies referred to in subparagraph 1 or 2 of the first paragraph of section 4 of the Act.
O.C. 533-2008, s. 47.
48. Where the amount of a service contract is $100,000 or more, or where the amount of a service subcontract is $100,000 or more, the contract or subcontract may not be entered into with a Québec service provider or subcontractor whose business employs more than 100 persons unless the service provider or subcontractor has made a commitment to implement an affirmative action program that complies with the Charter of human rights and freedoms (chapter C-12) and holds an attestation to that effect issued by the Chair of the Conseil du trésor.
If such a contract or subcontract is to be entered into with a service provider or subcontractor of another province or territory of Canada in respect of which an employment equity program is applicable, and that service provider or subcontractor employs more than 100 persons, the service provider or subcontractor must provide an attestation to the effect that the service provider or subcontractor has made a commitment to implement an employment equity program complying with the program of its province or territory.
If such a contract or subcontract must be entered into with a service provider or a subcontractor of Québec or of another province or territory of Canada, that is governed by the federal legislation, that employs more than 100 persons and in respect of which a federal employment equity program is applicable, the service provider or subcontractor must provide an attestation to the effect that the service provider or subcontractor has made a commitment to implement an employment equity program complying with the federal program.

DIVISION III
QUALITY ASSURANCE, SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT AND ENVIRONMENT
50. A public body may require a quality assurance system, including an ISO standard, or a specification relating to sustainable development and the environment for the carrying out of a contract. The public body must specify the requirement in the tender documents.
If such a requirement unduly reduces competition, the public body must allow any service provider to submit a tender and grant to a service provider that fulfils the requirement referred to in the first paragraph a preferential margin not exceeding 10%. In the latter case, the price submitted by such a service provider is, for the sole purpose of determining the successful tenderer, reduced by the preferential margin, without any effect on the price for contract awarding purposes.
The percentage of the preferential margin to be applied must be indicated in the tender documents.
In the case of a contract whose quality evaluation is based solely on the quality measurement, the public body must ascertain that there is enough competition to allow the first paragraph to apply.

In addition, the certificate of the service provider must not have been issued after the tender closing date and time or, in the case of a contract entered into by mutual agreement, after the contract award date.
The service provider’s holding a valid certificate issued in accordance with the second paragraph is considered to be an eligibility requirement within the meaning of section 6.
O.C. 848-2011, s. 1; S.Q. 2015, c. 8, s. 125.

SCHEDULE 1
(ss. 19, 20, 25, 28, 44)
Quality evaluation conditions for a contract award based on the lowest price
(1) At least 3 criteria are required for quality evaluation.
(2) The public body must specify in the tender documents, for each criterion, the elements of quality required to reach an “acceptable level of performance”, which corresponds to the public body’s minimum expectations for the criterion.
(3) An acceptable tender in terms of quality is a tender that, for each criterion, meets the “acceptable level of performance”. A tender that does not reach that level of performance in respect of any criterion is rejected.
O.C. 533-2008, Sch. 1.
SCHEDULE 2
(ss. 19, 21, 22, 25, 28, 44)
Quality evaluation conditions for a contract award based on the lowest adjusted price or based on the final score for the highest quality
(1) The evaluation grid must have at least 3 quality evaluation criteria.
(2) The public body must specify in the tender documents, for each criterion, the elements of quality required to reach an “acceptable level of performance”, which corresponds to the public body’s minimum expectations for the criterion.
(3) Each criterion in the evaluation grid is weighted on the basis of its importance for the carrying out of the contract. The total weight of the criteria is 100%.
(4) Each criterion is evaluated on a scale of 0 to 100 points, the “acceptable level of performance” corresponding to 70 points.
(5) At least 70 points may be required in respect of any criterion described in the evaluation grid. A tender that does not reach that minimum is rejected.
(6) The final score for the quality of a tender is the total of the weighted scores obtained in respect of each criterion; the weighted scores are determined by multiplying the score obtained for a criterion by the weight of that criterion.
(7) An acceptable tender in terms of quality is a tender whose final score is at least 70 points.
(8) The price of each acceptable tender is adjusted according to the following formula:
Adjusted price = Price submitted
__________________________________
Quality adjustement factor
The quality adjustment factor is equal to:
Final score for quality - 70
1 + K (________________________________)
30
where
“K” is the additional percentage that the public body is willing to pay to move from a 70-point tender to a 100-point tender, for all criteria.
(9) The public body determines in the tender documents the value of K, which must range from 15% to 30%.

TRANSITIONAL
2016
(O.C. 293-2016) SECTION 18Despite the second paragraph of section 7 of the Regulation respecting certain service contracts of public bodies (chapter C-65.1, r. 4), as amended by paragraph 2 of section 5 of this Regulation, the transmission, until 31 May 2019, of a same tender electronically and in paper form does not amount to filing more than one tender.
SECTION 19. Until 31 May 2019, when a service provider transmits, under a call for tenders, a same tender electronically and in paper form, the tender transmitted in paper form must be considered by the public body only if the public body cannot ascertain the integrity of the tender transmitted electronically at the opening of tenders, being understood that section 7.0.1 of the Regulation respecting certain service contracts of public bodies, made by section 6 of this Regulation, does not apply in such case.
SECTION 20. Until 31 May 2019, the second sentence of the third paragraph of section 11 of the Regulation respecting certain service contracts of public bodies, as amended by paragraph 2 of section 10 of this Regulation, applies only when a tender whose integrity could not be ascertained was not also transmitted in paper form.
SECTION 21. The provisions of sections 2 to 15 and 18 to 20 apply only to calls for tenders for which a notice is published as of 1 June 2016.
2013
(O.C. 430-2013) SECTION 20. Section 32.1 of of this Regulation, as they read on 22 May 2013, continues to apply to task order contracts entered into with several service providers before 23 May 2013 and whose object is the rental of heavy machinery with operator.
SECTION 21. Despite sections 9.1, 15.1 and 32 of this Regulation, the following rules apply to calls for tenders concerning a task order contract with several service providers whose object is the rental of heavy machinery with operator and to the resulting contract:
(1) tender documents and, if applicable, any addendum amending them, may be obtained free of charge from the public body making the call for tenders. The documents must contain clauses relating to the management of the contract to be entered into;
(2) the registered machines are attached to an establishment of the service provider situated in Québec in one of the administrative subdivisions determined in the tender documents or, if there is no such establishment in Québec, in the administrative subdivision situated the nearest to their establishment outside Québec;
(3) a service provider that has not taken part in the call for tenders may, on the conditions provided in the tender documents, register his or her machinery after the date on which the contract is entered into;
(4) a service provider that has registered his or her machinery may, on the conditions provided for in the tender documents, register a new machine after the date on which the contract is entered into;
(5) a service provider may, on the conditions provided for in the tender documents, replace registered machinery by a machine of another class or subclass;
(6) a service provider may, on the conditions provided for in the tender documents, replace a registered machine without changing its class or subclass but by indicating lease conditions different from the conditions applicable to the machine replaced;
(7) the registration of a machine may be transferred to the name of another service provider where the transferor has replaced it by a new machine;
(8) a registered machine may be attached to another establishment of the service provider situated in another administrative subdivision;
(9) where any of the situations described in subparagraphs 3 to 8 of this paragraph occurs, the machinery involved is registered with a “late” notation;
(10) the public body may, to determine the lowest tenderer, take into account, in addition to the hourly rate submitted for the machine, the machine’s age and hourly transportation cost and the operator’s travelling and boarding expenses and thus the performance requests are made on the basis of the weighted coefficient determined for each machine;
(11) in the administrative subdivision where the service is required, the performance requests are made to the service provider that has a machine registered therein according to paragraph 2 and whose machine has obtained the lowest weighted coefficient, unless the provider cannot perform the service, in which case the other providers that have a similar machine registered according to paragraph 2 and situated in that same administrative subdivision are solicited according to their respective rank;
(12) if no machine referred to in subparagraph 11 is available, the machines registered with a “late” notation and situated in the administrative subdivision where the service is required may then be considered. The public body makes the performance request to the service provider whose machine has obtained the lowest weighted coefficient, unless the service provider is unable to perform the service, in which case the other service providers that have a similar machine are solicited according to their respective rank.
For the purposes of this section,
(1) “weighted coefficient” means the quotient obtained by dividing the sum of the hourly rate submitted for the machine, the machine’s hourly transportation cost, the operator’s hourly travelling expenses and boarding expenses, where applicable, by the maximum total hourly rental rate in effect, as indicated in the booklet Taux de location de machinerie lourde, published by the Centre de services partagés du Québec;
(2) “hourly rate submitted for the machine” means the hourly rate indicated by the service provider or, if that rate is higher than the maximum total hourly rental rate in effect or if the machine is registered with a “late” notation, the maximum total hourly rate.
This section applies only to call for tenders issued within 3 years of 23 May 2013 and to contracts entered into following those calls for tenders.
SECTION 22. Sections 1 to 4, 6, 7, 9 and 11, to the extent that that section concerns section 42.0.2 of this Regulation, apply only to calls for tenders issued as of 23 May 2013.
Section 12 applies only to qualification proceedings issued as of that date.
Section 18, insofar as it concerns sections 51, 51.2, 51.3, 52, 52.2, 52.3 and 53 of this Regulation, applies to contracts in progress on 15 September 2013, regardless of the periods indicated therein, and to contracts entered into from that date.
