57.1.12. The city council concerned or, as the case may be, the council having jurisdiction over the mandate of the legal person concerned may reverse a decision of the inspector general.
In the case of a contract of a legal person, the council cannot reverse a decision without considering the recommendation of the board of directors of the legal person. Consequently, any legal person concerned by a decision of the inspector general must send to the council having jurisdiction over its mandate, not later than the 15th day following receipt of the decision, its recommendation as to whether or not to reverse the decision. The recommendation must give reasons.
For the purposes of the second paragraph, if no recommendation is sent within the prescribed period, the board of directors of the legal person concerned is presumed to be in favour of maintaining the inspector general’s decision.
The recommendation required under the second paragraph must be sent to the city clerk, who shall, at the first sitting of the council following receipt of the recommendation or following the expiry of the period fixed in the second paragraph, table it before the council having jurisdiction over the mandate of the legal person or inform the council of the absence of a recommendation.
A decision to reverse the cancellation of a contracting process or the rescinding of a contract must be made not later than the 45th day following the day the city clerk receives the inspector general’s decision.
Any reversal decision regarding a contract of a legal person must be sent to the secretary of the legal person.
