Procurement Challenges

Printer-friendly version

O’Reilly Stewart Solicitors acts on behalf of contracting authorities and bidders in relation to problems arising from the procurement process.  

A procurement challenge can be brought by any economic operator who suffers, or risks suffering, loss or damage as a result of a breach of procurement legislation.  This may include unsuccessful tenderers or those who would have bid for a contract but were unable to due to a breach by the contracting authority.  We advise parties on their rights and consider remedies to including negotiated settlements, formal legal challenges and injunctionsStrict time limits for proceedings apply so we recommend immediate action is taken as soon as an operator is aware of a breach of procurement rules. 

We advise contracting authorities on risk in relation to potential challenges, defending challenges and on how to expedite and achieve a satisfactory resolution. 

O’Reilly Stewart Solicitors have a wealth of experience in this complex and fast moving area.
