Precise information on deadline(s) for review procedures:

Economic operators who submit a tender shall be notified of the outcome of the procurement process, such notification will contain among other information, a summary of the reasons why the economic operator was unsuccessful. The notification will incorporate a standstill period of a minimum of 10 clear calendar days (or a minimum of 15 if the communication method used is not electronic) before conclusion of contracts. The bringing of court proceedings during the standstill period will automatically continue the prohibition on entering into the contract until court proceedings are determined, discounted 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 include the setting aside of the decision to award the contract to the winning tenderer. The bringing of court proceedings against the Contracting Authority after the contract has been entered into will not affect the contract unless grounds for the imposition of special penalties under the Public Contract (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 Contracting Authority after receipt of the notification should they require further clarification. The Contracting Authority will respond within 15 days of such a written request, but it should be noted that receipt by the Contracting Authority of such request during the standstill period may not prevent the Contracting Authority from awarding the contract following the expiry of the standstill period. An economic operator that suffers or risks suffering loss or damage attributable to a breach of duty under the Public Contracts (Scotland) Regulations 2015 may bring proceedings in the Sheriff Court or Court of Session.
