The courts have ruled that a successful tenderer which raises unreasonable objections to an application to vary a confidentiality ring in a public procurement dispute may be liable for the claimant's costs of the application, even though it's not a party to that dispute. The decision means that successful tenderers wanting to object to the use and adaptation of confidentiality rings in procurement challenges should consider carefully the extent to which they should raise objections.
