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 suppliers, including the name of any supplier 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.
