12. In order to submit a tender, a service provider, supplier or contractor 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 out 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 Protector may make eligible any service provider that has an establishment in a territory not covered by an applicable intergovernmental agreement, provided that the Public Protector so specifies in the tender documents.
A service provider, supplier or contractor who fails to comply with any of these requirements is ineligible.
