Bidders should note that the services which are the subject of this procurement fall within Schedule 3 to the new Public Contracts Regulations 2015 (‘the 2015 Regulations’) and accordingly the so called ‘Light Touch Regime’, as set out in Regulations 74-77, applies to this procurement.

That said, this procurement will follow a clear, structured and transparent process in order to ensure a fair and level playing field is maintained at all time and that all bidders are treated equally and fairly.

The Council reserves the right to award all, part or none of the business forming the subject matter of this procurement and to abandon, halt, postpone this procurement at any time. Under no circumstances will the Council incur any liability (including, but not limited to, liability as to costs) in respect of this procurement exercise, the abandonment of the same,or any documentation issued as part of this procurement exercise.
