18. If the delivery order contract is entered into with more than one supplier, the orders are directed to the supplier who, in respect of the goods to be acquired, submitted the lowest price, unless the supplier cannot fill the orders, in which case the other suppliers are solicited according to their respective rank for the same goods.
Such orders may, however, be awarded to any of the selected suppliers whose submitted price in respect of the goods to be acquired does not exceed the lowest price by more than 10%, so long as the awarding rule is authorized by the chief executive officer of the public body before the notice of a call for tenders is published.
