II.1.5)   Short description of the contract or purchase(s)
          Buying Solutions (the Contracting Authority) is putting in place a pan government collaborative framework
          agreement for use by public sector bodies (identified at section VI.3) for the provision of software application
          solutions (as defined immediately below).
          The term "software application solutions" means the provision by the service provider of:
          (a) application software (e.g. packages or bespoke), whether on a licensed or rental basis, that addresses the
          specific sector needs of local government bodies (as defined at Section VI.3) in management & finance, social
          care and education, communities, environment & public protection (as further defined by the lot structure in
          Section II.1.8); and/or
          (b) goods and/or services which are necessary for the implementation, delivery, and operation of the application
          software provided in (a) above, including: consultancy/advice, business change, programme and project
          management, feasibility and financial studies, requirements analysis, functional design, architecture design,
          software/system/solution design, software purchase or rental, programming and development, computer
          hardware (servers and storage systems) purchase or rental, system build, system configuration, system
          (including related middleware and system software) installation, integration of the system with external
          systems and software (see below for further definition of the term "integration"), data integration/migration and
          conversion, all stages of testing (technical and user), training and support (technical and end user), hosting
          (including CLOUD services), ongoing operation and support of the system, help desk and end user support,
          contact centres, ongoing maintenance/enhancement and upgrades of both the software and hardware platform.
          For this procurement, the term "integration" refers to ensuring a software application is capable of interacting
          with other applications or systems.
          For the avoidance of doubt, bidders must be able to offer application software as described at (a) above and, as
          a minimum, the necessary services described at (b) that are required to implement such application software.
          Buying Solutions requires software application solutions which will meet the commercial and technical
          requirements of small, medium and large local government bodies.
          The framework agreement will be let for 2 years with 2 additional 12 month extension options, to be exercised
          at the discretion of the Contracting Authority. The provision to the public sector bodies of a comprehensive
          range of local government focused software application solutions is specified in more detail in lots 1 to 10 in
          II.1.8 below. Bidders may bid for one, more than one, or for all lots; and must have a comprehensive solution
          capability specific to each of the lots for which they wish to enter a bid.
          During a further competition for the award of a call-off contract under the framework agreement, the Contracting
          Authority and/or the public sector body may require the service provider to participate in an electronic auction.

VI.3)     ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
          The Contracting Authority expressly reserves the right (i) not to award any contract as a result of the
          procurement process commenced by publication of this notice; and (ii) to make whatever changes it may see fit
          to the content and structure of the tendering competition; and in no circumstances will the Contracting Authority
          be liable for any costs incurred by the candidates. If the Contracting Authority decides to enter into a framework
          agreement with the successful bidder, this does not mean that there is any guarantee of subsequent contracts
          being awarded. Any expenditure, work or effort undertaken prior to contract award is accordingly a matter solely
          for the commercial judgement of the bidder. Any orders placed under this framework agreement will form a
          separate contract under the scope of this framework between the successful supplier and the public sector
          body. The Contracting Authority and public sector bodies utilising the framework reserve the right to use any
          electronic portal during the life of the agreement.
          The duration referenced in Section II.1.4 is for the placing of orders. The duration stated is a maximum term.
          The Contracting Authority intends to award the framework agreements for a term of 2 years, with the option to
          extend for 2 further terms each of up to 12 months duration, to be exercised at the discretion of the Contracting
          Authority.
          The value provided in Section II.1.4 is only an estimate. We cannot guarantee to suppliers any business through
          this framework agreement.
          Buying Solutions wishes to establish a framework agreement for use by or on behalf of public sector bodies
          (including their statutory successors and organisations created as a result of re-organisation or organisational
          changes). Public sector bodies (or “public sector body” in the singular) include but are not be limited to the

VI.4.2)   Lodging of appeals
          Precise information on deadline(s) for lodging appeals: The Authority will incorporate a minimum 10 calendar
          day standstill period at the point information on the award of the contract is communicated to tenderers.
          Applicants who are unsuccessful shall be informed by the Contracting Authority as soon as possible after the
          decision has been made as to the reasons why the applicant was unsuccessful. If an appeal regarding the
          award of the contract has not been successfully resolved, The Public Contracts Regulations 2006 (SI 2006 N
          °. 5) provide for aggrieved parties who have been harmed or are at risk of harm by breach of the rules to take
          legal action. Any such action must be brought within the applicable limitation period. Where a contract has not
          been entered into, the Court may order the setting aside of the award decision or order the authority to amend
          any document and may award damages. If the contract has been entered into the Court may, depending on the
          circumstances, award damages, make a declaration of ineffectiveness, order the Authority to pay a fine, and/or
          order that the duration of the contract be shortened. The purpose of the standstill period referred to above is to
          allow the parties to apply to the Courts to set aside the award decision before the contract is entered into.
