Process for Awarding Contracts
The Cities and Towns Act establishes the legal framework governing the awarding of contracts by municipalities. In general, the allocation procedures differ depending on whether it is:
- a public tender for a contract involving an expenditure of $100,000 or more;
- a call for tenders by invitation for a contract involving an expenditure of at least $25,000 and less than $100,000;
- to award a contract by mutual agreement involving an expenditure of less than $ 25 000.
Contract Management Policy
Pursuant to the requirements of Bill 76 passed by the Quebec government, the Village of Senneville has adopted a contract management policy governing the award of all contracts entered into by the municipality and involving an expenditure.
This policy aims to promote transparency in the awarding of municipal contracts, and this, while abiding to the rules relating to the awarding of such contracts under the laws governing the functioning of municipal bodies.
Lobbying Activities - A bidder or contractor must also comply with the Lobbying Transparency and Ethics Act (RSQ, c. T-11.011), in its communications with the Authority or its agents.
