VI.3)Additional information

The Contracting Authority intends to use an eTendering system in this procurement exercise and reserves the right to use a reverse auction.
Potential suppliers should note that, in accordance with the UK Government’s policies on transparency, Government Procurement Service intends to publish the invitation to tender (ITT) document, and the text of any framework agreement awarded, subject to possible redactions at the discretion of Government procurement service. The terms of the proposed framework agreement will also permit a public sector contracting authority, awarding a contract under this framework agreement, to publish the text of that contract, subject to possible redactions at the discretion of the contracting authority. Further information on transparency can be found at: http://www.buyingsolutions.gov.uk/aboutus/transparency/.

The Contracting Authority expressly reserves the right:
(I) Not to award any contract as a result of the procurement process commenced by publication of this notice; and
(II) To make whatever changes it may see fit to the content and structure of the tendering competition; and in no circumstances will the Contracting Authority be liable for any costs incurred by the candidates.
If the Contracting Authority decides to enter into a framework agreement with the successful supplier, this does not mean that there is any guarantee of subsequent contracts being awarded. Any expenditure, work or effort undertaken prior to contract award is accordingly a matter solely for the commercial judgement of potential suppliers. Any orders placed under this framework agreement will form a separate contract under the scope of this framework between the supplier and the specific requesting other contracting body. The Contracting Authority and other contracting bodies utilising the framework reserve the right to use any electronic portal during the life of the agreement.
The duration referenced in Section II.1.4 is for the placing of orders. The framework is for 2 years with the option of extending the framework agreement on the same terms for further periods of up to six (6) months each time. Maximum duration of the framework is 4 years.
The value provided in Section II.1.4 is only an estimate. We cannot guarantee to suppliers any business through this framework agreement.

VI.4.2)Lodging of appeals

Precise information on deadline(s) for lodging appeals: The Authority will incorporate a minimum 10 calendar day standstill period at the point information on the award of the contract is communicated to tenderers. Applicants who are unsuccessful shall be informed by the Authority as soon as possible after the decision has been made as to the reasons why the applicant was unsuccessful. If an appeal regarding the award of the contract has not been successfully resolved, The Public Contracts Regulations 2006 (SI 2006 No. 5) provide for aggrieved parties who have been harmed or are at risk of harm by breach of the rules to take legal action. Any such action must be brought within the applicable limitation period. 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, depending on the circumstances, award damages, make a declaration of ineffectiveness, order the Authority to pay a fine, and/or order that the duration of the contract be shortened. The purpose of the standstill period referred to above is to allow the parties to apply to the Courts to set aside the award decision before the contract is entered into.
