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: This authority is required to allow a standstill period of at least 10 calendar days from the day of dispatch of the notice informing tenderers of its decision to award the contract. The authority is required to provide feedback within 15 days of receipt of a request from a tenderer but there is no obligation on the authority to extend the standstill period in the meantime. The Utilities Contracts (Scotland) Regulations 2012 provide for an aggrieved party who suffers or risks suffering loss or damage as a result of the authority’s breach of its duties to bring proceedings in the Sheriff Court or Court of Session, provided that the aggrieved party has first informed the authority of the breach of duty and of its intention to bring proceedings. Proceedings must be brought within 30 days beginning with the date when the party first knew or ought to have known that grounds for starting proceedings had arisen. The Court may extend that period up to a maximum of 3 months if it is satisfied that there is good reason to do so. Where a contract has already been entered into, a party may bring proceedings for an ineffectiveness order. Proceedings for an ineffectiveness order must be brought within 30 days from the date of publication of the OJEU notice or the date of sending the notice informing tenderers of the authority’s decision to award the contract, or, if neither of those apply, within 6 months from the date the contract is entered into. The Court may by interim order suspend the procedure leading to the award of contract and the implementation of any decision or action taken by the authority in the course of the award procedure, and then may order the setting aside of the decision or action, the amendment of any document, and an award of damages. Where the contract has already been entered into and an ineffectiveness order has not been sought, the Court may only award damages, but if an ineffectiveness order has been sought it may order the authority to pay a penalty and may make such further order as it considers appropriate to address the consequences of the ineffectiveness order.
