Section VI: Complementary information

VI.3)Additional information:

Appointment to the framework agreement has been made on a quality only basis. Values provided for each lot are indicative only and not a guarantee of business. The values provided in this award notice are the estimated lot values over the maximum length of the framework and for call-offs. However if the Council's requirements increase or decrease beyond that expected, this figure may change. The framework is multi-lotted and is open to multiple suppliers under each lot and has been let under the Light Touch Regime. The Framework Agreement differs from those let under the non-light touch regime in that the Council, exercising its flexibility, will keep the Framework open for new applicants throughout its term and reserves the right to extend the framework from its 48 month initial term for an additional 48 months. No contract awarded from the framework will be permitted to extend beyond 31.3.2025.

Proceedings must be brought within 30 days from the date of knowledge (the date on which the economic operator first knew or ought to have known that grounds for starting the proceedings had arisen) unless the Court considers that there is good reason for extending the period within which proceedings may be brought, in which case the Court may extend that period up to a maximum of 3 months from the date of knowledge.
