Please contact customerservices lexology. There are three main avenues for challenging a procurement decision made by a Commonwealth agency. The main claims are:. In the government context, the contract would also likely include an implied duty to act fairly, reasonably and in good faith. Whether or not there is a process contract will depend on the intention of the parties.

Usually, this means that an agency can prevent their tender documentation from giving rise to a process contract by a clear disclaimer to the contrary, however it is also important that the requirements of the tender do not, of themselves, establish a contractual relationship. The more onerous the terms of the tender requirements the more care that will need to be taken to avoid this outcome.

Even if a process contract exists, it will only require the agency to follow the procedures set out in their tender documentation and to act fairly, reasonably and in good faith when dealing with tenderers. In the context of the major procurements that we see, the Commonwealth is very good at managing the risk of non-compliance with the procurement process, through the use of probity advisers where appropriate.

As with most risk management issues, the earlier a problem can be addressed the better. Another way in which procurement processes can be subject to challenge is on the basis of a false or misleading representation made during the process. One avenue in this regard is a misleading or deceptive claim under the Australian Consumer Law , as enacted under the Competition and Consumer Act Cth.

These provisions will only apply to the Commonwealth where the relevant agency or statutory body is carrying on a business. Ordinarily, this will not be the case for Commonwealth agencies as their procurement processes take place in the context of ordinary governmental functions.

At common law, challenges can also be made on the basis that an agency made a negligent misrepresentation, or that a representation made during the procurement process gave rise to an estoppel.

Such claims do not require the Commonwealth to have been carrying on a business but do require that the Commonwealth owe a duty of care or have departed from a previous representation it induced the tenderer to rely on. As the Commonwealth ordinarily takes care to ensure that information provided to tenderers is accurate, there have been very few reported cases where a tenderer has succeeded on the basis of an incorrect or misleading representation being given during the procurement process.

Finally, a tender might seek judicial review of a procurement decision. In most cases this has involved an application under the Administrative Decisions Judicial Review Act Cth ADJR Act although procurement decisions may also be challenged on common law administrative law principles.

For an application to succeed under the ADJR Act, the tenderer must show that the procurement decision was an administrative decision made under an enactment. This requires not only that the empowering Act authorise or require the making of the particular procurement decision, but that it govern the validity of the contract as well.

In contrast, in most cases the validity and effect of the contract is governed by the ordinary laws of contract, with the relevant legislation merely conferring a general power to enter into contracts. This will not suffice. Currently, there are limited options for tenderers to challenge Commonwealth tender processes and decisions. As will be seen in the next article in the series the Government Procurement Judicial Review Bill may change this.
