Precise information on deadline(s) for lodging appeals: The Council will incorporate a minimum of 10 calendar days standstill period at the point where information on the award of the contract is communicated to tenderers. This period allows tenderers the possibility of reviewing and challenging the award before the contract is entered into. If any complaint or appeal cannot be otherwise resolved the Public Contracts Regulations 2006 (as amended) provide for aggrieved parties who have been harmed or are at risk of harm by breach of the rules to take legal action. Tenderers should be aware that any such action should generally be brought within 3 months of the alleged breach and ideally as promptly as possible. 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 documents and may award damages. Damages may also be available after the contract has been entered into but at this point (i.e. after the has been contract is entered into) the grounds for setting aside the contract are more limited. Once the contract is entered into any challenge as to the validity of the contract can only be made on certain specified grounds for a declaration of ‘ineffectiveness’ – such challenges (i.e. those based on the limited grounds for ineffectiveness) must be brought within 6 months of the conclusion of the contract although tenderers should note that if the contracting authority informs them of the conclusion of the contract and provides a summary of the relevant reasons then that time period (i.e. 6 months from the conclusion of the contract) may be reduced to 30 days.
It is incumbent on tenderers to seek specific legal advice in relation to any proposed or actual challenge to the process and the applicable limitation periods.
