The Register of Enterprises Not Eligible for Public Contracts (RENA) records the names of companies that have committed an offence under Schedule 1 of the Act respecting contracting by public bodies (R.S.Q., chapter C-65.1) (LCOP). In addition, the LCOP provides for the registration in the RENA of companies that have been refused or revoked by the Autorité des Marchés Publics an authorization to conclude public contracts or subcontracts. Thus, as of its entry in the register, a company will not be able to be awarded a public contract or public subcontract or continue such a contract in progress. In exceptional circumstances, the Conseil du trésor or, in the case of municipalities, the Minister of Municipal Affairs and Land Occupancy may authorize a company registered with the RENA to obtain a public contract or subcontract if it is in the public interest to do so. Purpose: RENA is part of the measures adopted by the Government of Quebec to ensure the probity of companies doing or wanting to do business with the state. These measures are included in the Anti-Corruption Act (Bill 15), the Act to prevent, combat and penalize certain fraudulent practices in the construction industry and to make other amendments to the Building Act (Bill 35) and the Contract Integrity Act public (Bill No. 1).
