— the design and installation of highway drainage pipe relining to sites identified by the Employer,
— provision of Traffic Management and Pedestrian Management when required by the contract and which will depend on the site location,
— where road closures are required the Employer will arrange and provide these at no cost to the Contractor. The Employer may request the Contractor to provide a quotation for the road closure once the diversion has been designed.
This above list is not exhaustive and doesn’t absolve the Contractor of any of their responsibilities not mentioned in the list but which are required to deliver the service.
The proposed Framework period is 2 years with potential extensions of a further 2 years in 1 year increments subject to performance.

Leicestershire County Council (LCC) will incorporate a minimum 10 calendar days standstill period at the point of information on the award of the contract, as communicated to tenderers. Applicants who are unsuccessful shall be informed by LCC as soon as possible after the decision has been made as to the reasons why the applicant was unsuccessful. If an appeal regarding the award of the contract has not been successfully resolved, The Public Contracts Regulations 2015 provide for aggrieved parties who have been harmed or are at risk of harm by breach of the rules to take legal action. Any such action must be brought within the applicable limitation period. Where a contract has not been entered into, the Court may order the setting aside of the award decision or order for any document to be amended and may award damages, make a declaration of ineffectiveness, order for a fine to be paid, and/or order the duration of the contract be shortened. The purpose of the standstill period referred to above is to allow the parties to apply to the Courts to set aside the award decision before the contract is entered into.
