VI.3)Additional information:

As a Central Purchasing Body as defined by the EU Procurement Directive 2014/24/EU (“the Directive”), the framework agreement is open for use by contracting authorities (as defined by the Directive) that also fall into one of the following classifications of user throughout all administrative regions of the UK:

— local authorities,

— educational establishments (including academies),

— central Government Departments and agencies,

— police, fire & rescue and coastguard emergency services,

— NHS and HSC bodies, including ambulance services,

— registered charities,

— registered social Landlords or

— any contracting authority established by or under the Scotland Act 1998 or any Act of the Scottish Parliament. Details of the classification of end user establishments and geographical areas are available on: http://www.espo.org/About-us-%281 %29/FAQs/Legal.

ESPO proposes to establish a commercial trading company whose target clients will be third sector organisations such as national and local charities, public sector mutual organisations and other organisations involved in the delivery of services to or for the public sector. The successful Supplier will be asked to enter into an additional separate framework agreement (the Second framework) with that commercial trading company on materially similar terms to that found in the tender pack to be entered into by ESPO itself.

The Second framework agreement will be a purely commercial agreement and will, for the avoidance of doubt, not be governed by the Public Contract Regulations 2015 or other procurement legislation. The trading company will enter into the framework agreement with the successful supplier and make it available to third sector clients who themselves are not required to follow the Public Contracts Regulations 2015 or other procurement legislation. Accordingly, this is provided for bidders’ information only.

VI.4.3)Review procedure

Precise information on deadline(s) for review procedures:

ESPO will incorporate a minimum 10 calendar day standstill period at the point information on the award of the contract is communicated to tenderers. Applicants who are unsuccessful shall be informed by ESPO as soon as possible after the decision has been made as to the reasons why the applicant was unsuccessful. If an appeal regarding the award of the contract has not been successfully resolved, The Public Contracts Regulations 2015 (SI 2105 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 for any document to be amended and may award damages, make a declaration of ineffectiveness, order for a fine to be paid, and/or order 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.
