Disclaimer & conditions of participation

This MOI is not a recommendation by the Council, or any other person, to enter into any agreement or to make any investment decision. In considering any investment in the project, each bidder should make their own independent assessment and seek their own professional financial and legal advice. This MOI and the SQ are made available in good faith. No warranty is given as to the accuracy or completeness of the information contained in these documents and any liability for any inaccuracy or incompleteness is therefore expressly disclaimed by the Council and its advisers, except that this will not operate to exclude liability for fraudulent misrepresentation. Whilst reasonable care has been taken in preparing this MOI, the information within it does not purport to be exhaustive or to have been independently verified. The Council and their advisers do not accept liability or responsibility for the adequacy, accuracy or completeness of any information or opinions stated in this MOI. In so far as it is compatible with any relevant laws, the Council reserve the right not to award a contract, to make whatever changes they see fit to the structure and timing of the procurement process (including issuing updates and amendments to the procurement documents and inviting bids on the same or an alternative basis), to cancel the procurement at any time and where appropriate re-advertise the requirement. Nothing in this MOI shall be taken as constituting an offer, contract or agreement between the Council and any other party. The Council is not bound to accept any offer resulting from this Competition. Nothing in this MOI is to be construed as implying commitment by the Council that they will award the contract. The information in this MOI supersedes any other previous marketing material. The Council is not liable for any costs resulting from any cancellation of this tendering process nor for any other costs incurred by those expressing an interest in, or negotiating for this contract opportunity. Any expenditure, work or effort undertaken is accordingly a matter solely for the commercial judgment of the bidder. The Council and its advisers are not and shall not be liable for any costs incurred by those expressing an interest or negotiating or tendering for this contract, their associated entities or any other person. Bidders are responsible for ensuring that there are no conflicts of interest either between their own advisers or those of the Council. A bidder must notify the Council of any conflict of interest or potential conflict of interest as soon as reasonably practicable after it becomes aware of such a conflict. You are deemed to understand fully the processes that the Council is required to follow under relevant European and UK legislation, particularly in relation to the Public Contracts Regulations 2015. This MOI should be read in conjunction with the other procurement documents.
