Precise information on deadline(s) for review procedures:

The Authority will incorporate a minimum 10 calendar day standstill period following electronic notification (minimum of 15 calendar days for any other means of communication) to unsuccessful applicants of the award decision. 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. The Public Contracts Regulations 2015 (SI 2015 Nº 102) 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.

The Environment agency expressly reserves the right:

(I) not to award or enter into any contract as a result of the procurement process commenced by the publication of this notice;

(II) to make whatever changes it may see fit to the content and structure of the tendering competition;

(III) to award one or more public contract(s) in relation to part only of the requirements covered by this notice; and/or

(IV) to award a contract(s) in stages.

In no circumstances will the Environment agency be liable for any costs incurred by the Applicants/Tenderers and their associated parties. Any expenditure, work or effort undertaken prior to contract award is accordingly a matter solely for the commercial judgement of potential Applicants and the Environment agency will not be responsible for any such expenditure.
