51. In order to award a mixed contract for construction work and professional service, the Public Protector may consider the quality of a tender. To that end, the Public Protector applies the evaluation conditions in Schedule 2.
In that case, the Public Protector must specify in the tender documents the rules to be used to evaluate the quality of tenders, including the evaluation criteria selected and their respective weighting.
The price and the quality demonstration must be presented separately so that the first paragraph of section 56 may apply. In addition to the cases referred to in section 13, the compliance requirements must state that failure to comply with the requirement will entail automatic rejection of a tender.
The Public Protector awards the contract to the contractor that submits the lowest adjusted price.
