Section III: Legal, economic, financial and technical information
Section IV: Procedure
Section VI: Complementary information
This opportunity is being undertaken via our electronic tendering portal The Chest ( https://procontract.due-north.com ).
The council will incorporate a minimum 10 calendar-days standstill period at the point information on the award of contract is communicated to tenderers. This period allows unsuccessful tenderers to seek further debriefing from the council before the contract is entered into. Such information should be requested from the address stated in section I.1 above. If an appeal regarding the award of contract has not been successfully resolved, the public contracts Regulations 2015 provides for aggrieved parties who have been harmed, or are at risk of harm, by a breach of the rules, to take action in the High Court (England, Wales and Northern Ireland). Any such action must be started within 30 days beginning with the date when the aggrieved party first knew or ought to have known that grounds for starting the proceedings had arisen. The Court may extend the time limit for starting proceedings where the Court considers that there is a good reason for doing so but not so as to permit proceedings to be started more than 3 months after that date. Where a contract has not been entered into, the Court may order the setting aside of the award decision or order the contracting authority to amend any document and may award damages. If the contract has been entered into the Court may only award damages or, where the contract award procedures have not been followed correctly, declare the contract to be “ineffective”.
