To access the procurement documentation suppliers must register their company details on the Sourcing Cloud system at https://suppliers.multiquote.com the tender is available from the Opportunities menu on the login page of the site. The Contracting Authority shall not be under any obligation to accept the lowest tender or indeed any tender. University of Essex expressly reserves the rights:

(a) to terminate the procurement process and not to award any contract as a result of the procurement process at any time;

(b) to make whatever changes it may see fit to the content and structure of the procurement as detailed within the tender documentation;

(c) to award a contract covering only part of the consortium's requirements if explicitly detailed within the tender documentation;

(d) to disqualify any organisation from the process that canvasses any employee of the Contracting Authority during the procurement process or standstill period if applicable;

(e) seek clarifications to tender responses on the basis that any clarification sought will not confer any undue competitive advantage in the favour of any supplier from whom such clarifications are being sought;

(f) where the Contracting Authority can evidence that there is a conflict of interest, either personal or in consideration of any organisation bidding for the contract, the Contracting Authority shall have the explicit right to immediately exclude that person or organisation from the tender process entirely;

(g) where the Contracting Authority has engaged in any pre-market soft testing prior to the commencement of the procurement process, the Contracting Authority reserves the right to name any organisation that has been involved in these discussions and release any and all specifications / discussion documents to the market where appropriate to the subject matter of this procurement.

(h) the Contracting Authority will not be liable for any costs incurred by tenderers.

(j) the Contracting Authority wishes to establish a Framework Agreement open for use by all Public-Sector Bodies as stated in II.1.4.

Tenderers should note, in reference to Section IV.1.3), Envisaged maximum number of participants to the framework:

Where, following the evaluation of bids, more than one Tenderer is tied with the same final evaluation score, each of these tenderers shall be deemed to occupy the last Framework Agreement contract award position for the purpose of calculating the maximum number of Suppliers under the framework.

The Contracting Authority will award a Framework Agreement to additional Tenderers beyond the stated maximum number on any particular Lot, where their final evaluation score (s) is within 0,5 % of the last placed position only. For the avoidance of doubt, the last placed position in respect of each Lot of this framework is 6th place. Therefore on a lot by lot basis, Tenderers within 0,5 %, along with the Tenderer in last placed position, shall be deemed to occupy the last Framework Agreement contract award position for each respective lot.

University of Essex will incorporate a minimum 10-day standstill period at the point information on the award of contract is communicated to tenderers. Bidders who are unsuccessful shall be informed by the Contracting Authority as soon as possible after the decision is made as to the reasons why the bidder was unsuccessful.

If a declaration of ineffectiveness is sought, any such action must be brought within 30 days where the Contracting Authority has communicated the award of the contract and a summary of reasons to tenderers, or otherwise within 6 months of the contract being entered into. Where a contract has not been entered into, the Court may order the setting aside of the award decision or order the Contracting 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 Contracting Authority to pay a fine, and/or order that the duration of the contract the 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.
