VI.4.2)Lodging of appeals

Precise information on deadline(s) for lodging appeals: Queens Cross Housing Association will incorporate a standstill period at the precise point when information on the award of the contract is communicated to tenderers. This period will be 10 days from the date upon which the Association notifies bidders of the award of the contract (if it uses electronic means) or 15 days (if it uses other means). This period allows unsuccessful bidders to consider the information provided by the Association before the contract is entered into. If an appeal regarding the award of the contract has not been successfully resolved, The Public Contract (Scotland) Regulations 2006 (SSI 2006 No1), as Amended (2009), provide for aggrieved parties who have been harmed or are at risk of harm by a breach of the legislation to take action in the relevant Sheriff Court or the Court of Session. Any such action must generally be brought within 3 months (or within 30 days in the case of proceedings seeking an ineffectiveness order). Where a contract has not been entered into, or if it has been entered into and the proceedings are brought within 30 days of the date referred to above, the Court may order a setting aside of the award decision, or grant an ineffectiveness order, and order the Association to amend any document and may award damages (the purpose of the standstill period referred to in this paragraph is to allow parties to apply to the Courts to set aside the Contract Award decision before the Contract is entered into). If the contract has been entered into and proceedings are brought after 30 days of the date referred to above, the Court may only award damages.
