What is the concern?

Is this a potential conflict of interest for example?

Expert:  Debra replied 10 months ago.

I am sorry but I cannot speak to you on the telephone. I know the site offers this service but the site is based in the US. In Canada the rules of my law society prohibit me from speaking to you on the telephone as you are not my client.

I can only speak to you by posting up and back over this site.

Please send me the answer to my question "Can an Ontario Condominium Board of Directors award a ciontract for the
cement paving of townhome driveway without specifications and award a contract to a company without tendering
to have work done.
Many years ago I was the president of a twenty seven story condo builing and the lawyer on our board stated we had
to have specifications for the work and that we must tendered to have the work done. Is that still the law. A simple yes
or no would suffice
Expert:  Debra replied 10 months ago.

The law is that there needs to be a tender for any contracts so that no board member can get a kick back.

But if there is no conflict of interest then the same contractors can be used a second or further time without going through the tendering process.

The Internet is a wonderful but mysterious place.

You are not charged twice though as even follow-up questions are free.
