Lawyer signing legal documents

Client Query 055:- Hello, Hope all is well at your end! With reference to Rule 42 (b), wanted to ask whether we can refer to specific model for standard specifications with word ‘Equivalent’ in case for request for calling quotations?

Answer:- Thank you very much for writing to us. As per Rule 10 of Public Procurement Rules, 2004, it provides that, specifications shall allow the widest possible competition and shall not favor any single contractor or supplier nor put others at a disadvantage. Specifications shall be generic and shall not include references to brand names, model numbers, catalogue numbers or similar classifications. However if the procuring agency is convinced over the fact that the use of or a reference to a brand name or a catalogue number is essential to compete then in such situations the word equivalent can be used. Hope this answers your query!
