Additional Information

This Contract Notice relates to a Future Contract Opportunity (FCO) Notice published on 8th August 2014 (SC Ref:314908). The services to be provided were previously included as a single lot in a tender for Carer Support Services(Contract Notice SC Ref:321714 published on 1st October 2014).

A tenderer that suffers loss as a result of a breach of duty under the Public Contracts (Scotland) Regulations 2012 may bring proceedings in the Sheriff Court or the Court of Session. The City of Edinburgh Council (the Council) will have a minimum voluntary standstill period of 10 days before awarding the contract. The communication of the award decision notice will be sent by fax or e-mail to all tenderers on day 1 of the voluntary standstill period. If proceedings are started in the Sheriff Court or the Court of Session against the Council in respect of the decision to award the contract within the voluntary standstill period then the Council is prevented from awarding the contract. Post contract award the Sheriff Court or the Court of Session may (1) award damages provided proceedings are brought within 3 months from the date when the grounds for the bringing of the proceedings first arose (2) be entitled to issue an ineffectiveness order or impose a financial penalty on the Council. A claim for an ineffectiveness order must be made within 30 days of the Contract Award Notice being published in the OJEU or within 30 days of the date those who expressed an interest in or otherwise bid for the contract were informed of the conclusion of the contract or in any other case within 6 months from the date on which the contract was entered into.
