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 frame work 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 frame work 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 OJ/S S10128/05/2013172910-2013-EN Member states – Supply contract – Contract notice – Open procedure 11/1128/05/2013S101http://ted.europa.eu/TEDMember states – Supply contract – Contract notice – Open procedure Supplement to the Official Journal of the European Union11/11 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.

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.
