46. The authorization of the chief executive officer of the public body is required for every contract of a repetitive nature whose expected term, including any renewal, is greater than 3 years or, in the case of a contract referred to in the first paragraph of section 42.2, greater than 5 years. Despite the foregoing, the chief executive officer of the public body may not authorize a task order contract whose expected term, including any renewal, is greater than 5 years.
That authorization is also required before entering into a contract involving an expenditure equal to or above the public tender threshold if
(1) only one service provider submitted a compliant tender; or
(2) only one service provider submitted an acceptable tender following a quality evaluation.
In the case provided for in subparagraph 2 of the second paragraph, the selection committee must not know the price and the chief executive officer of the public body is to determine whether or not the awarding process should be continued.
