VI.3.2)Lodging of appeals
Precise information on deadline(s) for lodging appeals: The Council will incorporate a minimum 10 calendar day standstill period after notification to unsuccessful applicants of the award of the decision. The period allows unsuccessful suppliers to seek a debrief from the Council before the contract is entered into and to provide an opportunity to seek to challenge the award decision before it is implemented. A request for a debriefing made before midnight on the second working day after the day of despatch with a notification of the award decision shall be fulfilled at least 3 working days before expiry of the standstill period. A nominated contact point to request debriefing will be detailed in the notification letter. The Public Contracts (Scotland) Regulations 2006 provide for remedies through the Scottish Courts to be sought by economic operators who suffer (or risk suffering) loss or damage as a consequence of a failure by the GO Group to comply with certain provisions of those Regulations and/or certain EU Community obligations relating to procurement. In summary, proceedings must be brought promptly and in any event within three months of the date on which grounds for bringing proceedings first arise. The relevant court will have discretion to extend the deadline if it considers there is good reason for doing so.
