Distinction between contracting entity and contracting authority
Rule n ° 1:
The fact that a public person entrusts to a third party the exploitation of one of the fixed networks falling within its competence must be considered as an act exercised by a contracting authority, and not as an act performed by a contracting entity.
Rule n ° 2:
The absence of publication in the JOUE is likely to result in the nullity of the contract within the framework of a contractual referent.
Rule n ° 3:
The contractual summary is opened when the contracting authority has not notified a rejection decision to unsuccessful candidates or has not complied with a deadline of 11 days before the signature of the contract.
