Not in force
16. The Conseil du trésor may authorize a public body to obtain a good or service on conditions that differ from those set out in this Act and determine the conditions applicable in such a case.
The authorization provided for in the first paragraph is not required
(1) if such a body obtains a good or service at a cost that does not involve using public funds; or
(2) if such a body enters into a contract by mutual agreement because there is an emergency that threatens human safety or property, in accordance with subparagraph 1 of the first paragraph of section 13 of the Act respecting contracting by public bodies (chapter C-65.1), and because it is therefore able to provide reasons based on events that could not be anticipated. The chief executive officer of the body must, however, so inform the Chair of the Conseil du trésor and include a summary description of the circumstances or reasons considered.
