  • Extreme urgency brought about by events unforeseeable for the contracting authority and in accordance with the strict conditions stated in the directive

Covid-19 is a serious illness and its consequences are life-threatening. From the outset of the pandemic, NHS Wales experienced severe supply shortages as the virus affected Global Supply Chains. This was particularly prevalent in the area of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), where stocks of products and raw materials in the UK and Europe were rapidly depleted due to the lockdown that had been implemented in China. Due to the extreme urgency of the situation, and the pace at which Coronavirus spread within Wales, it was necessary for NHS Wales Shared Services Partnership to make a direct award for the items covered by this contract award notice. This situation is provided for under Regulation 32(2)(c) of the Public Contract Regulations 2015 (‘Direct Award due to reasons of extreme urgency’).
