Section VI: Complementary information
Section VII: Modifications to the contract/concession
The authority requires additional services within the scope of services provided under the existing contract for up to 17 months following the expiry of the contract.
Extension of the term of the contract by up to 17 months. Ability to reduce the service lines provided by the incumbent contractor as those service lines are transitioned to replacement contractors. It is expected that the sole service line provided by the incumbent contractor after the expiry of the original term of the contract will be application development and maintenance.
Technical reasons: Simultaneous transfer of service lines to replacement contractors. Substantial application development and maintenance services required as a result of the United Kingdom's exit from the European Union. Economic reasons: Increased costs of project management and technical resources needed to manage safely the transition and development of new applications. Inconvenience: Increased risk of delay or system failure during transition. Duplication of cost: Increased and unnecessary costs of additional project management and technical resource.
