Our client had been unsuccessful in a competitive tender process to provide vehicle tracking apparatus to two local authorities. They sought the expertise of HCR Hewitsons in challenging the contract award.
Simon Biggin and Stewart Morrison in our Dispute Resolution team prepared a detailed letter of claim to the authorities. It set out why we considered the decision to award the contract to the winning bidder to be contrary to the Public Contracts Regulations.
Simon and Stewart’s efforts led to the local authorities agreeing to abandon the procurement and to undertake a new competition.
