Democratic LifeContract management
In December 2019 the City of Notre-Dame-de-l’Île-Perrot adopted a contract management bylaw pursuant to section 5220.127.116.11 of the Cities and Towns Act. The bylaw applies to all contracts that incur expenses for the city and contains the terms and conditions for awarding certain contracts.
Councillors, officials and employees of the municipality must follow the provisions of the bylaw and are responsible at all times for applying the policy in the performance of their duties.
The bylaw applies also to agents, to consultants retained by the municipality, to bidders in an invitation to tender, to parties that win a contract in an invitation to tender, to all co-contracting parties and generally to any party interested in contracting with the City.
At least once a year, the City files, at a council meeting, a report on the application of this by-law.
