Private commisions are not regulated in France but commissions for public works are very administrative.

Despite this being the case the principle is the same for both:

  • equal treatment of all candidates and transparency in the procedure
  • preliminary definition of the requirements with a list of the documents included in the request for a proposal
  • the format and information to be returned with the offer (often including the envelope)
  • the date and the place for the return of the offers
  • contact details in case any additional queries arise
  • a request to confirm receipt of the expression of interest
