The Contracting Authorities are subject to the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and the Environmental Information Regulations 2004 and the Environmental Information Regulations 2004. All information received will be dealt with in accordance with that Act and information to which the Environmental Information Regulations apply will be dealt with in accordance with those regulations. The Contracting Authorities reserve the right not to proceed or not to award a contract for the whole or any part of the proposed procurement. Neither the Contracting Authorities nor any person on whose behalf of whom this procurement is undertaken is to be liable for any costs incurred by those expressing an interest or tendering for this contract. The services required are social and health services listed as listed Schedule 3 PCR 2015 (Light Touch) and any contract shall be awarded in accordance with Chapter 3 of the PCR 2015. The procedure adopted is based on the open procedure and is detailed in the procurement documentation.
The Contracting Authorities will incorporate a minimum 10 calendar days standstill period at the point information on the award of the contract is communicated to tenderers. The Public Contracts Regulations 2015 (SI 2015 No. 102) (as amended) provide 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.
