REPORT
Explanation:
I do not think "minutes" is appropriate here since this is a tender document - so I would use "report" - Collins Robert Dictionnaire du Management.

Explanation:
The term has several possible English equivalents, including "(official) report," "(legal) proceedings," "minutes (of meetings)," "record (e.g., of evidence)", etc. Without more context, it's hard to tell which meaning is meant; however, if it appears in a tender document, it probably doesn't refer to police/court/procedural meanings, most likely referring instead simply to a report of some kind, or possibly to the minutes of a meeting. -- Hope this helps, at least a little.
