297. A school service centre may grant a student transportation contract after negotiating an agreement or following a call for public tenders.
In the case of a call for public tenders, the school service centre must accept the lowest admissible tender. However, the Minister may, exceptionally, authorize the school service centre to award the contract to another admissible bidder and attach conditions to such authorization. The school service centre may also reject all the tenders and either call for new ones or, in the cases provided for by regulation of the Government, enter into a contract by mutual agreement.
Every student transportation contract shall be made in writing and in accordance with government regulation. The contract must require the carrier to adopt measures to prevent and stop any form of bullying or violence during the transportation of students, and to inform the principal of the school concerned of any act of bullying or violence that occurs during transportation. The contract must also require the carrier to make sure, in collaboration with the school service centre, that the driver completes proper anti-bullying and anti-violence training as soon as possible.
The duration of the contract is determined in accordance with the standards established by regulation of the Government. However, where no regulation exists, the maximum duration shall not exceed three school years.
