Full text
44. If the delivery order contract is entered into with more than one supplier, the orders are directed to the supplier who submitted the lowest price, unless that supplier cannot fill the orders, in which case the other suppliers are solicited according to their respective ranks.
Such orders may, however, be awarded to any of the selected suppliers whose submitted price does not exceed the lowest price by more than 10%, as long as the awarding rule is authorized by the Chief Electoral Officer before the notice of call for tenders is published.
