The Minister may, on the conditions determined by the Minister, allow the Community to award a contract without calling for tenders or otherwise than in accordance with a regulation under section 105.1 or 106.1, allow the Community to award a contract after a call for tenders made by written invitation rather than by advertisement in a newspaper or rather than as required in the regulation, or allow the Community to award a contract to the winner of a design competition it holds. The Minister may, on his or her own initiative, exercise that power in respect of a class of contracts.
The first paragraph does not apply where, pursuant to the terms of an intergovernmental agreement on the opening of public procurement applicable to the Community, the tenders must be public tenders.
