VI.4)Procedures for review

VI.4.1)Review body

The Common Services Agency (more commonly known as NHS National Services Scotland) (‘the Authority’)
Gyle Square (NSS Head Office), 1 South Gyle Crescent
Edinburgh
EH12 9EB
UNITED KINGDOM
Telephone: +44 1698794410Internet address:http://www.nhsscotlandprocurement.scot.nhs.uk/
VI.4.2)Body responsible for mediation procedures

VI.4.3)Review procedure

Precise information on deadline(s) for review procedures:

The Authority will notify economic operators who submitted a tender or (where no de-selection notification has previously been made) applied to be selected to tender, of its decision to award the framework 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 framework agreement.

The bringing of Court proceedings against the Authority during the standstill period will automatically continue the prohibition on entering into the framework 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 framework agreement has been entered into include the setting aside of the decision to award the framework agreement to the winning tenderer(s). The bringing of Court proceedings against the Authority after the framework agreement has been entered into will not affect the framework agreement unless grounds for the imposition of special penalties under the Public Contracts (Scotland) Regulations 2012 can be established. Otherwise the remedies that may be awarded by the Courts where the framework 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 framework 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 framework agreement has been concluded in breach of The Public Contracts (Scotland) Regulations 2012, such economic operator is advised to promptly seek independent legal advice.
