29.1. Despite the provisions of Division I of Chapter III, a public body referred to in subparagraphs 1 to 4 of the first paragraph of section 4 of the Act may enter into a delivery order contract by mutual agreement for the acquisition of software for cases other than those referred to in subparagraphs 1 to 4 of the first paragraph of section 13 of the Act.
The delivery order contract may be entered into with public bodies that made a joint call for tenders referred to in section 15 of the Act. In that case, the provisions provided for in section 5 relating to a joint call for tenders, apply with the necessary modifications and considering the obligation provided for in the third paragraph of this section.
To avail itself of a delivery order contract, the public body and, if applicable, the legal person established in the public interest benefiting from the acquisition must have conducted an extensive and documented search showing that only the supplier identified in the contract may meet their requirements.
The authorization of the Conseil du trésor is required where the approximate monetary value of the delivery order contract is equal to or above the public tender threshold. The minister may set the conditions applicable to the contract.
