  • Conditions that do not ensure the honest and fair treatment of bidders or;
  • Conditions that do not allow bidders to compete although they are qualified to meet the stated procurement requirements or;
  • Conditions not compliant with the normative framework.

It can also complain about a contract entered into by mutual agreement (“gré à gré”) if, following the publication of a notice of intention on the electronic tender system (SEAO), it has expressed its interest in executing the contract.

It may also file a complaint in regards to the tendering or awarding process for a public contract for other issues than those described earlier.
