Section IV: Procedure

IV.1)Description
IV.1.1)Type of procedure
Negotiated procedure without prior publication
  • New works/services, constituting a repetition of existing works/services and ordered in accordance with the strict conditions stated in the directive
Explanation:

Scottish Borders Council is in the process of reviewing future requirements for all Waste Management Services.

During this period the highest priority for the Council is existing service delivery. Therefore until the new Waste Management Plan is fully implemented and to avoid a disproportionate impact on current waste operations it is necessary that existing arrangements relating to service provision continue.

A detailed options appraisal has been conducted which confirms that this approach is the most appropriate solution delivering best value while meeting the necessary requirements of the Public Contracts (Scotland) Regulations 2015.

VI.4.2)Body responsible for mediation procedures
VI.4.3)Review procedure
Precise information on deadline(s) for review procedures:

The bringing of court proceedings against the Authority in advance of the contract being entered into will automatically prohibit the Authority from entering into the contract 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 contract has been entered into include the setting aside of the decision to award the contract to the relevant economic operator. The bringing of court proceedings against the Authority after the contract has been entered into will not affect the contract 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 contract has been entered into are limited to the award of damages. Economic operators are entitled to write to the Authority after receipt of the notification should they require further clarification. The Authority will respond within 15 days of such a written request, but it should be noted that this may not prevent the Authority from entering into the contract. Where an economic operator is dissatisfied with the Authority's response to its request for clarification, or considers that the contract has been concluded in breach of The Public Contracts (Scotland) Regulations 2015, such economic operator is advised to seek independent legal advice promptly.
