When the directive was implemented, the UK government refused to make batch subdivision mandatory for certain contracts. Regulation 46 of the 2015 PCR gives the contracting authorities a special jurisdiction to award a contract in the form of separate lots. The Authority can determine the size and purpose of the lots. Tim, thank you for the response, after discussing non-compliance with the local authority, hasn`t the local authority launched mini-tenders that we should receive? (in case they were to be implemented), the local authority instead pulled directly towards a contractor on the basis of bandaged surfaces and a price per item, which was not presented at the tender stage, but which was proposed after the award of the framework classification. It was also clear that hubs allow direct pricing agreements to be concluded outside the framework. No notification has been made by the Official Journal of the European Union and no other members of the framework are informed. If this is allowed or the Hubs/Trusts have found a way to work the system. The answer to the second part of your question is that executives have a finite value and once appeal contracts have been entered into against the framework that exhausts that value, a new individual contract or framework should be put in place. In summary, the answers to the two questions you raised depend on the contractual position defined in the parents` framework agreement and not in the legislation. In your view, it appears that the contracting authority is changing the terms of the framework contract after the conclusion of the contract, i.e. it was only at the consultation stage that it introduced the change of MEAT (Most Economically Advantageous Tender) at the lowest price. If this framework (or fixed-term contract) is covered by the Public Contracts Regulations (PCR), it would appear that they violate these regulations. I can give you some guidance on how to file a complaint if that is the case.
Even if it is not covered by the PCR, it may be applicable as a breach of contract. I asked a question about the amendments that can be tabled in order to put out those of the t-c. We want to remove a framework under its direct pricing option. The supplier we chose in the framework agreement has forwarded a number of proposed amendments to compensation and liability amounts. The clauses to be amended concern both us as buyers and the supplier of the framing (for example, paragraph 7 states that "the supplier frees the supplier from the framework and the buyer of any claim made by a person employed by the supplier by an action or omission of the supplier or a member of the supplier`s staff").
