Contracting authorities: resolving procurement challenges29/11/18
Procurement challenges can be disruptive and costly. If proceedings are started by an unsuccessful bidder, the contracting authority will be prevented by law from entering into a contract with the preferred bidder until the litigation is resolved.
If a complaint is received, we can provide urgent advice on its merits and a strategy to resolve the dispute to avoid litigation. If litigation ensues, we have unrivalled experience in the High Court applying on behalf of contracting authorities to lift the suspension of the contract award, thereby realising the benefits of the new contract.
