Section VI: Complementary information

VI.1)Information about European Union funds
VI.2)Additional information:
The contracting entities will commence the standstill period at the point information on the award of the contract is communicated to tenderers. That notification will contain the information specified in Regulation 32 of the Utilities Contracts Regulations 2006 (as amended). Pursuant to Regulation 45D, legal proceedings must generally be started within 30 days beginning with the date when the economic operator first knew or ought to have known that grounds for starting the proceedings had arisen, although a Court can extend the period for bringing proceedings to up to 3 months (after the date when the economic operator first knew or ought to have known that grounds for starting the proceedings had arisen) where the Court considers that there is a good reason for doing so. A longer limitation period of 6 months can apply to any claim for a declaration of ineffectiveness (although this can in certain circumstances, specified in the Utilities Contracts Regulations 2006, be reduced to 30 days). The standstill period, which will be for a minimum of 10 calendar days, provides time for unsuccessful tenderers to challenge the award decision before the contract is entered into. The Utilities Contracts Regulations 2006 (as amended) provide for aggrieved parties who have been harmed or are at risk of harm by a breach of the rules to take action in the High Court of Northern Ireland.
