VII.2)Information about modifications
VII.2.1)Description of the modifications
Nature and extent of the modifications (with indication of possible earlier changes to 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.

VII.2.2)Reasons for modification
Need for additional works, services or supplies by the original contractor/concessionaire (Art. 43(1)(b) of Directive 2014/23/EU, Art. 72(1)(b) of Directive 2014/24/EU, Art. 89(1)(b) of Directive 2014/25/EU)
Description of the economic or technical reasons and the inconvenience or duplication of cost preventing a change of contractor:

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.

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: 1 445 000 000.00 GBP
Total contract value after the modifications
Value excluding VAT: 1 475 000 000.00 GBP
