II.1.5)Short description of the contract or purchase(s)

CAP Reform refers to the new EU Common Agricultural Policy regulations for paying schemes running from 2015-2019.
As part of the CAP implementation there is a requirement to develop a new central Integrated Administration Control System (IACS) with enhanced, interactive geo-spatial capability, including an updated Land Parcel Identification System (LPIS), which must include GIS capability supporting a map-enabled customer interface.
European Regulations require the Agriculture, Food and Rural Communities Directorate (AFRC) within Scottish Government to uniquely identify, map and evaluate the area of every land parcel in Scotland claimed under the various EC grant-aid schemes covered by the Integrated Administration and Control System (IACS). Subsidy claims cannot be paid to Rural Businesses until they have been successfully verified against the Land Parcel Identification System (LPIS), which is a fundamental part of the Integrated Administration and Control system (IACS) and part of the technical implementation of the Common Agricultural Policy stipulated since the early 1990’s.
The primary objective of the LPIS procurement is to replace the existing Business as Usual (BAU) technology and to deliver a new LPIS that supports CAP compliance and the Futures Programme strategic objectives and vision.
An accurate and functioning LPIS is critical to the payments and compliance processes. As such, a successful delivery of a fully functioning and compliant LPIS is a pre-requisite and key enabler for the successful delivery of CAP reform.

Precise information on deadline(s) for lodging appeals: The Scottish Ministers will incorporate a minimum of a 10-calendar-day standstill period at the point that information on the award of the contract is communicated to tenderers. This period allows unsuccessful tenderers to seek further debriefing from the contracting authority before the contract is entered into. Applicants have 2 working days from the notification of the award decision to request additional debriefing and that information has to be provided a minimum of 3 working days before the expiry of the standstill period. Such additional information should be required from the address in point I. 1) of the Contract Notice. If an appeal regarding the award of the Contract has not been successfully resolved, the Public Contracts (Scotland) Regulations 2012 provide for aggrieved parties who have been harmed or are at risk of harm by a breach of the rule to take action in the Sherriff Court or Court of Session. Any such action must be brought promptly (generally within 3 months). 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 only award damages (the purpose of the standstill period referred to above is to allow parties to apply to the courts to set aside an award decision before the Contract is entered into).
