II.1.3)Type of contract
The Environment Agency is committed to managing our environmental impacts including waste by reducing and managing them using the best practical environmental option. This framework will cover the collection, disposal and recycling of a variety of operations-derived waste streams generated by our sites, primarily across the south east of England. The geographical extent of the framework may be expanded at the Agency’s discretion, subject to satisfactory performance of the Contractor.
The framework is intended to commence on 1.5.2017, until 30.4.2019, with options to extend until 30.4.2021.
The Agency has a sustainability plan for 2020 called E:mission. One of our goals is to re-use, recycle and recover more than 90 % of our waste, including office, operational and construction / project waste. This framework therefore has a requirement for zero waste to be sent to landfill where technically feasible.

Precise information on deadline(s) for lodging appeals: “The Authority will incorporate a minimum 10 calendar day standstill period following electronic notification (minimum of 15 calendar days for any other means of communication) to unsuccessful applicants of the award decision. Applicants who are unsuccessful shall be informed by the Authority as soon as possible after the decision has been made as to the reasons why the Applicant was unsuccessful. The Public Contracts Regulations 2015 (SI 2015 No. 102) provide for aggrieved parties who have been harmed or are at risk of harm by breach of the rules to take legal action. Any such action must be brought within the applicable limitation period. 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, depending on the circumstances, award damages, make a declaration of ineffectiveness, order the Authority to pay a fine, and/or order that the duration of the contract be shortened. The purpose of the standstill period referred to above is to allow the parties to apply to the Courts to set aside the award decision before the contract is entered into.
