SNBTS is building a new National Centre for the manufacturing, testing and distribution of blood, tissue and cell products. The National Centre is located in the Heriot-Watt Research Park, Riccarton, Edinburgh.
The construction is being undertaken by Interserve Construction Ltd who are estimated to hand over the building to SNBTS on 10.11.2016.
SNBTS operates throughout Scotland with manufacturing operations currently spread across three sites in Edinburgh and Glasgow. The National Centre will provide SNBTS with a single centre for its main functions. The transfer of operations is scheduled to take place in a phased manner over the period November 2016 to May 2017. This is a complex move covering all operational elements from standard office-based activities to blood manufacturing and testing through to highly specialised stem cell therapy services.
SNBTS is seeking to outsource the planning, management and delivery of the relocation of its services from existing sites at Lauriston Place, Edinburgh; Ellen’s Glen Road, Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Gartnavel, Glasgow to the National Centre.
The current expectation is that office based functions, the warehouse and some laboratory functions will transfer before the end of December 2016. Blood processing and testing and Tissue Services will move in a staged manner from January 2017 through to the end of April 2017.
The services provided by SNBTS are highly regulated by external licensing agencies which act on behalf of the government. Each stage of the transfer must be approved by these agencies and as such a flexible and adaptable approach to dates and scope is essential.

VI.4)Procedures for appeal
VI.4.1)Body responsible for appeal procedures

VI.4.2)Lodging of appeals

Precise information on deadline(s) for lodging appeals: The Authority will notify economic operators who submitted a tender or (where no deselection notification has previously been made) applied to be selected to tender, of its decision to award the agreement which notification will contain among other information, a summary of the reasons why the economic operator was unsuccessful. The notification will incorporate a ‘standstill period’ of a minimum of 10 clear calendar days (or a minimum of 15 if the communication method used is not electronic) between the date on which the Authority despatches the notice(s) and the date on which the Authority proposes to conclude the relevant agreement. The bringing of court proceedings against the Authority during the standstill period will automatically continue the prohibition on entering into the agreement until the court proceedings are determined, discontinued or disposed of, or the court, by interim order, brings to an end the prohibition. The remedies that may be awarded by the courts before the agreement has been entered into include the setting aside of the decision to award the agreement to the winning tenderer(s). The bringing of court proceedings against the Authority after the agreement has been entered into will not affect the agreement unless grounds for the imposition of special penalties under the Public Contracts (Scotland) Regulations 2006 can be established. Otherwise the remedies that may be awarded by the courts where the agreement has been entered into are limited to the award of damages. Economic operators are entitled to write to the Authority after receipt of the notification should they require further clarification. The Authority will respond within 15 days of such a written request, but it should be noted that receipt by the Authority of such request during the standstill period may not prevent the Authority from awarding the agreement following the expiry of the standstill period. Where an economic operator is dissatisfied with the Authority’s response to its request for clarification, or considers that the agreement has been concluded in breach of The Public Contracts (Scotland) Regulations 2006, such economic operator is advised to promptly seek independent legal advice.
