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

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