VI.3)Additional information
1. In November 2012, the Scottish Government Draft Budget set out proposals to take forward a number of capital infrastructure developments across Scotland using a revenue funded model. Both the RHSC and DCN projects were specifically highlighted as projects to be procured under the revised funding model, or a Non-Profit Distributing (NPD) organisation (the form of public-private partnership preferred by the Scottish Government). The Board is seeking a Private Sector Partner to participate and invest in the RHSC and DCN at Little France NPD Project for which Outline Business Case has been approved by the Scottish Government Health and Social Care Directorate and planning permission in principle has been received;
2. Interested parties should express interest, receive and submit pre-qualification questionnaire submissions via the Public Contracts Scotland website at htttp://www.publiccontractsscotland.gov.uk;

3. A bidders’ day will be held on 13 December 2012 for those parties interested in the Project. Interested parties will find information on the bidders’ event and registration details on the Public Contracts Scotland website at htttp://www.publiccontractsscotland.gov.uk;

4. The new facility is to be delivered as a stand alone new build but as it will be located on the existing site of the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh, to ensure clinical efficiencies there will be physical and operational links between the new facility and the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh, including but not limited to 1) connecting works and services mainly in terms of infrastructure associated with ICT, security, data and fire alarm systems and 2) a physical link connection. The Project shall also include interface enabling works;
5. The range of estimated value stated is in connection with the design and build activities of this Project;
6. The anticipated duration will be 300 months (or 25 years) operational plus the period of construction. The total anticipated duration is therefore 336 months (or 28 years) from the award of the contract.

VI.4)Procedures for appeal
VI.4.1)Body responsible for appeal procedures

Lothian NHS Board
Waverley Gate 2-4 Waterloo Place
EH1 3EG Edinburgh
UNITED KINGDOM

VI.4.2)Lodging of appeals
Precise information on deadline(s) for lodging appeals: The Board will notify economic operators who submitted a tender or (where no deselection notification has previously been made) applied to be selected to tender, of its decision to award the contract which notification will contain among other information, a summary of the reasons why the economic operator was unsuccessful. The notification will incorporate a ‘standstill period’ of a minimum of 10 clear calendar days (or a minimum of 15 if the communication method used is not electronic) between the date on which the Board dispatches the notice and the date on which the Board proposes to conclude the relevant contract. The bringing of court proceedings against the Board during the standstill period will automatically continue the prohibition on entering into the contract until court proceedings are determined, discounted or disposed of, or the court, by interim order, brings to an end the prohibition. The remedies that may be awarded by the courts before the contract has been entered include the setting aside of the decision to award the contract to the winning tenderer. The bringing of court proceedings against the Board after the contract has been entered into will not affect the contract unless grounds for the imposition of special penalties under the Public Contract (Scotland) Regulations 2012 can be established. Otherwise the remedies that may be awarded by the courts where the contract has been entered into are limited to the award of damages. Economic operators are entitled to write to the Board after receipt of the notification should they require further clarification. The Board will response within 15 days of such a written request, but it should be noted that receipt by the Board of such request during the standstill period may not prevent the Board from awarding the contract following the expiry of the standstill period. Where an economic operator is dissatisfied with the Board’s response to its request for clarification, or that the contract has been concluded in breach of the Public Contracts (Scotland) Regulations 2012, such economic operator is advised to promptly seek independent legal advice.
