95.1.1. Tenders submitted electronically may only be submitted through the electronic tendering system approved by the Government.
In the case of a tender submitted electronically, a transit authority must, at the opening of the tenders, ascertain the integrity of the tender using the electronic tendering system.
Any transit authority that agrees to receive tenders electronically must mention that fact in its calls for tenders or in the documents to which they refer. It must also mention in the calls for tenders or the documents that any tender submitted electronically whose integrity is not ascertained at the opening of tenders is rejected if that irregularity is not remedied within two working days after the notice of default sent by the transit authority.
A tender submitted electronically within the time set in the third paragraph to remedy the default regarding the integrity of a previously submitted tender is substituted for the latter on its integrity being ascertained by the transit authority. That tender is then deemed to have been submitted before the closing date and time set for receiving tenders.
However, a transit authority may not require that tenders be submitted only electronically.
