49. In the case of mixed contracts for construction work and professional services, the Chief Electoral Officer may consider the quality of a tender. To that end, the Chief Electoral Officer applies the evaluation terms and conditions set out in Schedule 2.
In such a case, the Chief Electoral Officer must specify, in the tender documents, the rules to be used to evaluate the quality of tenders, including the evaluation criteria selected and their respective weighting.
The price and the quality demonstration must be presented separately so that the first paragraph of section 54 may apply. In addition to the cases referred to in section 12, the compliance conditions must state that failure to comply with this requirement will entail automatic rejection of a tender.
The Chief Electoral Officer awards the contract to the contractor that submits the lowest adjusted price.
