characteristics and (unless the recipient is a candidate) the relative advantages of the successful tenderer and the score of the recipient of the notice plus any other required information. Unless there is any contingency to account for there will normally be a minimum 10 calendar day standstill period. Unless the information has already been given in the standstill letter or there are legal grounds to withhold information the Borough will supply to any unsuccessful economic operator the reasons why it was unsuccessful and the information described in the previous paragraph within 15 days of a request in writing. Such additional information should be required from the address at i.1 above.

If the contract has been entered into and the grounds for such an order are made out the Court may make a declaration of ineffectiveness, must impose penalties and may award damages.
