P-32, r. 1 - Regulation respecting Contracts of the Public Protector

Full text
33. With the exception of contracts for professional service, the Public Protector awards the contract to the service provider or contractor who submits the lowest price.
For supply contracts, the Public Protector may, in the determination of the lowest price, include the cost of the impact related to the acquisition and adjust the submitted prices accordingly. This price adjustment must, however, be founded on quantifiable and measurable factors that are clearly identified in the tender documents.
