Where a contract has not been entered into, the Court may order the setting aside of the award decision or order the authority to amend any document and may award damages,

— if the contract has been entered into, the Court may, depending on the circumstances, award damages, make a declaration of ineffectiveness, order the Authority to pay a fine, and/or order that the duration of the contract is shortened.
