VII.2) Information about modifications

VII.2.1) Description of the modifications

Extend until 31 August 2021.

VII.2.2) Reasons for modification

Need for modification brought about by circumstances which a diligent contracting authority/entity could not foresee

Description of the circumstances which rendered the modification necessary and explanation of the unforeseen nature of these circumstances:

The Covid-19 situation is so new and has so little additional information around it, that the consequences are not something we could or should have predicted. Back in April, we were still working on the assumption that we would be tendering for this service as normal however, as time progressed and the impact of Covid-19 became more apparent, emergency procedures were put in place which had to be managed by some staff members, taking them away from their regular day to day activities. The impact on certain peoples’ roles was not foreseen when we first had discussion with the service around re-procurement.

VII.2.3) Increase in price

Updated total contract value before the modifications (taking into account possible earlier contract modifications and price adaptions and, in the case of Directive 2014/23/EU, average inflation in the Member State concerned)

Value excluding VAT: 2 576 000.00 Currency: GBP

Total contract value after the modifications

Value excluding VAT: 2 576 000.00 Currency: GBP
