Letter To Notify Supplier Standstill Period Complete (Without Challenge)
This legal template is designed to aid in the drafting of a letter to notify a supplier that the standstill period, without any untoward challenges, under UK law has come to an end. In the context of public procurement, a standstill period refers to the period of time between the notification of a contract award decision and the formal signing of the contract. During this standstill period, unsuccessful bidders have the opportunity to challenge the award decision if they believe it was made unfairly or in breach of procurement regulations. However, if the standstill period passes without any legal challenges being raised by unsuccessful bidders, the buyer can proceed with the signing of the contract. This template letter serves as a formal notification to the supplier that the standstill period has been completed without any such challenges, thereby confirming their successful bid and allowing for the finalization of the contractual agreement.
