20. Tenders are opened by the Public Protector 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 names of the service providers, suppliers or contractors and their respective total prices are disclosed, subject to subsequent verification.
Despite the second paragraph, for a professional service contract, only the names of the service providers are disclosed.
Within 4 business days, the Public Protector must make the results of the public opening of tenders available on the electronic tendering system.
