VI.3)Additional information
The contracting authority and other public bodies interested in utilising the framework arrangements contemplated by this procurement intend to transform the manner in which Built Environment Consultancy Services are procured and managed nationally. They will adopt the principles of partnering through the development of longer term relationships throughout the supply chain, integrated design and construction teams, shared risk/rewards and performance management. The partnering ethos will involve a partner selected for their capability and commitment to these principles. It will include target fee setting, open book accounting, shared problem solving, and a strong commitment to all aspects of continuous improvement. A key feature of this approach will be to develop a spirit of mutual trust, collaboration and teamwork throughout the supply chain. The framework arrangements may be used by public bodies as set out in paragraph II.1.5 above.

Precise information on deadline(s) for lodging appeals: Contracting Authority will incorporate a minimum 10 calendar day standstill period at the point that an award decision notice is communicated to tenderers. The award decision notice will specify the criteria for the award of the framework agreement, the reasons for the decision, including the characteristics and relative advantages, the name and score of the successful tender; and will specify when the standstill period is expected to end or the date before which the Contracting Authority will not conclude the framework agreement. If an appeal regarding the award of a contract has not been successfully resolved, the Public Contracts Regulations 2015 set out the time frame within which aggrieved parties who have been harmed or are at risk of a breach of the rules may take action in the High Court (England, Wales and Northern Ireland). Any such action must be brought within 30 days from the date when the economic operator in question first knew or ought to have known that grounds for the bringing of proceedings had arisen. The Court may extend the 30 day period in a particular case if it considers that there is good reason for so doing, up to a period of 3 months from the actual or deemed date of knowledge of the economic operator. The Court may order the setting aside of the award decision or may order the Contracting Authority to amend any document and may award damages. If the framework agreement has been entered into the Court may make a declaration of ineffectiveness or may order that the duration of any relevant specific contract be shortened and additionally may award damages. The time limit for seeking such a declaration is generally 30 days from notification of the award (either by award decision notification or contract award notice depending on the circumstances) or otherwise 6 months.
