29.9. Notwithstanding sections 468 to 469.1, two or more municipal corporations may make a joint call for public tenders in view of awarding an insurance contract or a contract for the supply of services other than professional services.
The corporations taking part in a joint call for public tenders may delegate to one of them the powers necessary for making the call. In that case, the acceptance of a tender by the corporation to which the powers have been delegated shall also bind each participating corporation towards the selected tenderer.
The total amount of a contract made following a joint call for tenders and the combined population of the municipalities that are parties to the joint call must be taken into consideration for the application of the rules governing the awarding of contracts.
