VI.4.2)Lodging of appeals

Precise information on deadline(s) for lodging appeals: LGSS will incorporate a minimum 10 calendar day standstill period in its procurement timetable, starting from the date when the award decision notification is dispatched to bidders. This period allows unsuccessful tenderers to seek further de-briefing from the contracting authority before the contract is entered into. Applicants have until midnight of the 2nd working day of the standstill period for their additional debriefing requests to reach the authority. A response to such a request must be provided to the tenderer by a minimum of 3 working days before expiry of the standstill period. If an appeal regarding the procurement process has not been successfully resolved, the Public Contracts Regulations 2006 (SI 2006 N0.5) provide for the aggrieved parties, who have been, or are at risk of, harm by a breach of the procurement rules, to bring an action in the High Court. Any such action must be brought promptly and in any event within 3 months of the date when the grounds of complaint first arose. Where a contract has not been entered into, the court may order the setting aside of the award decision or order the authority to amend any document and may award damages. If the contract has been entered into, the court may only award damages. The purpose of the standstill period referred to above is to allow parties to apply to the court to set aside the award decision before the contract is entered into.
