Article by Jonathan Lewis – Summary judgment in public procurement claims
Lexis Nexis Local Government analysis written by Jonathan Lewis.
This claim concerned the procurement of a contract for equipment to monitor vehicles for enforcement of mandatory clean air zones. Neology UK Ltd came third in a mini-competition to call off such a contract under a framework agreement. Among other things, Neology alleged various scoring errors in the evaluation of its bid and issued an application for summary judgment. The council applied to lift the automatic stay. Mr Justice Kerr dismissed Neology’s summary judgment application and lifted the automatic stay on the council entering into a contract with the winning bidder.
