containing the Code governing public contracts


Explanation:
I agree with Heathcliff.

"Provisions" is fine but here as it is referring to a specific code, then you might prefer to use Code.

Your original might have helped you more if the writer had not ommitted one word "portant LES codes des marchés publics...". That might have guided you to the specific code being referred to. French use of capital letters in titles, capital letter on just the first word of a title, forgotten here too, unfortunate.

Down to detail. A set of provisions exists in France which are to be adhered to when bidding for public contracts and government procurements. There has been lots of noise in the French press over recent years on scandals about the way some of these contracts are obtained by a number of unscrupulous companies. Contracts for the installation and maintenance of lifts in the HLM housing sector in Paris immediately springs to mind. The « code » referred to can be consulted on the web (see below). I believe there have been moves in Canada to implement a similar set of rules.

LE CODE DES MARCHES PUBLICS (extraits ou résumés)

A link onthis page to the five chapters of the Code des Marchés Publics itself for an indication of the types of measures and provisions which are in place.

marchés publics = Public contracts, government procurements

code sur les marchés publics = Agreement on government procurement

marchés publics n. m. pl.

Déf. :« Les marchés publics » sont des contrats passés par les Collectivités publiques en vue de la réalisation de travaux, fournitures et services » (livre 1, art. 1 du Code des marchés publics).
Note :Les dispositions applicables aux marchés publics ont été codifiées par un décret du 17 juillet 1964 « instituant un code des marchés publics ». Ces marchés dont les conditions sont réglées par les cahiers des charges : - cahier des clauses administratives; - cahier des prescriptions communes; - cahier des prescriptions spéciales; sont passés soit : - par adjudication; - sur appel d'offres « ouvert » s'il s'agit d'un appel public à la concurrence, « restreint » s'il ne s'adresse qu'à certains candidats ou « avec concours » lorsque certains motifs exigent des recherches particulières; - de gré à gré s'il s'agit alors d'un accord direct entre l'administration et un entrepreneur choisi sans que la concurrence soit nécessairement représentée.

[1970]
