The contracting authorities will incorporate a minimum 10 calendar day standstill period at the point information on the award of the contract is communicated to tenderers. Participants who are unsuccessful shall be informed by the contracting authorities as soon as possible after the decision has been made as to the reasons why the participant was unsuccessful. If an appeal regarding the award of the contract has not been successfully resolved, The Public Contracts Regulations, as amended, 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 the contracting authorities to amend any document and may award damages. If the contract has been entered into the Court may, depending on the circumstances, award damages, make a declaration of ineffectiveness, order the contracting authorities to pay a fine, and/or order that 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.
