In order to achieve its obligations, the Municipality often needs to contract services and acquire goods through a tendering system. These goods and service contracts enable the municipality to provide a variety of services to its citizens while strategically managing costs.
The process of awarding contracts is governed by various laws and by-laws as well as internal policies aimed at ensuring that the service or product providers have equal access to municipal contracts and are able to meet the Municipality’s quality standards. More specifically, the by-law ensures measures to:
- Promote the respect of applicable laws aimed at combat bid-rigging;
- Ensure the respect of the Lobbying Transparency and Ethics Act and the Lobbyists' Code of Conduct adopted under this Act;
- Prevent acts of intimidation, influence peddling or corruption;
- Prevent situations of conflict of interest;
- Prevent any other situation that could compromise the impartiality and objectivity of the biding process and the management of the resulting contract;
- Supervise decisions that authorize the amendment of a contract;
- Ensure, when possible and in accordance with the criteria and principles set out in the By-law, the rotation of potential suppliers with respect to contracts having an expenditure greater or equal to $ 25,000 but not surpassing the amount decreed by the government obligating a competitive bidding process;
