26.2. Despite section 11, tenders submitted during the first stage are opened only in the presence of the secretary of the selection committee, or his or her representative, at the designated place and on the closing date and time fixed in the tender documents. The public body publishes in the electronic tendering system the names of the suppliers who participated in that stage within 4 business days following the public opening of the tenders filed at the second stage.
At the second stage, where the selected suppliers are invited to submit a tender including a quality demonstration and a price, the provisions of section 20 apply.
