Public service delegations and period of validity of tenders
Rule n ° 1:
The Council of State considers that the provisions of Article L. 1411-1 of the general code of local authorities do not require the delegating authority to set a deadline for the validity of offers. In other words, it is no longer necessary to set a deadline for the validity of tenders for public service delegations.
Rule n ° 2:
In the event that the competition regulation issued by the delegating authority provides for such a deadline, the deadline thus fixed may be extended only with the agreement of all the candidates admitted to submit an offer, without it is necessary to set a new deadline. The agreement of the candidates may result from the candidates' pursuit of negotiations with the delegating authority.
