CE 2 October 2013, Department of L'Oise, n ° 368846

Référé précontractuel : attribution d'un marché sans publicité et sans mise en concurrence préalable à un prestataire déterminé pour des raisons tenant à la protection de droits d'exclusivité Awarding a contract without advertising and without prior call for competition to a specific provider for reasons relating to the protection of exclusive rights

Rule n ° 1:

A contracting authority may award a negotiated contract without advertising and without prior call for competition to a specific service provider for reasons relating to the protection of exclusive rights on the basis of the provisions of Article 35-II-8 ° of the Code of public markets. In this case, the Council of State admitted that a contracting authority which in the context of a first contract entrusted the implementation and deployment of a digital space can then entrust the operation and maintenance of this digital space to the same provider when it operates using a software on which said company has an exclusive right.

Rule n ° 2:

The Conseil d'Etat has already had occasion to consider that the plea alleging breach of exclusivity rights held by a candidate in the context of an advertising and tendering procedure is admissible (EC 13 July 2007, Syndicat agglomération Nouvelle Ouest Provence, Req. No. 296096-CE 19 September 2007, Urban Community of Saint-Étienne Métropole, Ref. No. 296192).

Rule n ° 3:

In such a case, the plea alleging that the department should have, in order to respect the principle of equal treatment between the candidates and freedom of access to the public order, not conclude a contract capable of leading to the same company alone being able to execute the market becomes inoperative.
