DWF v The Secretary of State for Business Innovation

08 Jul 2014 | by Caroline Sweeney

In a short judgment this morning in DWF v BIS  the Court of Appeal upheld a contract suspension under Regulation 47G of the Public Contracts Regulations (or rather did so in part), and gave some encouragement to those who look to pursue remedies other than damages in these claims.  The Court also gave helpful guidance as to when Claimants in procurement claims can amend their case to add to their complaints even when 30 days has expired since they learned of the relevant new facts.

 

Michael Bowsher QC appeared for the successful appellant, DWF LLP.  A case note will follow.
