Without prejudice to the participating authority’s other rights and remedies, if the first ranked framework Contractor is unable or incapable of meeting the participating authority’s requirements (as determined by the participating authority), the participating authority must consider the second ranked framework Contractor for the works and so on, cascading through the framework contractors.
Part 2, for Work (Services) over 5 000 GBP in value, a mini competition via Public Contracts Scotland Quick Quote will be carried out between all Contractors who are appointed to this Framework on a project-by-project basis. For all mini-competitions, the prices quoted must be at least as competitive as the Pricing Schedule. The Public Contracts (Scotland) Regulations 2015; regulation 7b allows for mini-competitions be carried out to re-open partly or fully the award criteria for the each contract of work. The award criteria for each mini-competition will be either be based on commercial only or for more complex projects a commercial and technical evaluation will be carried out and awarded on the basis of the most economically advantageous tender as set out in the procurement documents for the Framework Agreement.
