Enterprises currently covered under the Integrity in Public Contracts Act and required to obtain authorization from the AMF are those that are competing in a call for tenders or an award process to enter into contracts with Québec government department and agencies and Québec municipalities involving an expenditure equal to or greater than the thresholds determined by the Government.
