VI.4.3) Review procedure

Precise information on deadline(s) for review procedures:

The Authority will notify economic operators who submitted a tender or (where no deselection process has previously been made) applied

to be selected to tender, of its decision to award the Framework Agreement which notification will contain, among other information, a

summary of the reasons as to why the economic operator was unsuccessful. The notification will incorporate a ‘standstill period’ of a

minimum of 10 (ten) clear calendar days (or a minimum of 15 (fifteen) if the communication method used is not electronic) between the

date on which the Authority dispatches 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 Framework 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 Framework 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 has been entered into will not affect the Framework Agreement unless

grounds for the imposition of special penalties under the Public Contracts (Scotland) Regulations 2015 can be established. Otherwise the

remedies that may be awarded by the courts where the Framework Agreement has been entered into are limited to the award of damages.
