The successful contractor will be invited to join the contractors carrying out the above contracts to discuss matters of mutual interest such as the contractor works standards of components installed, as well as procurement of standard items.

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: After a decision on award has been made the Borough of Poole will as soon as
possible inform the tenderers and candidates of its decision and include in
this notice the criteria for the award and the reasons for the decision
including the name, score, 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.
The Public Contracts Regulations 2006 (SI 2006 No. 5) provide for economic
operators who consider the Borough has breached its duties to take action in
the High Court. Any such action must be brought promptly (generally within 3
months) from the date when the grounds for starting the proceedings first
arose. Economic Operators are advised to take legal or other relevant
professional advice when considering a legal challenge as the Regulations
contain various time limits for starting proceedings. Where a contract has not
been entered into and a breach is found to have taken place the Court may make
an interim order or 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 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.
