II.2.14)Additional information

The quality and cost weightings above applied to the original procurement. Modification is being made under Regulation 72.1.b as the current provider is responsible for the Norfolk Service and increased referrals make it necessary to increase the budget. It is not possible for technical reasons to compete the additional monies and to do so would result in substantial cost to the Council.

Award of a contract without prior publication of a call for competition in the Official Journal of the European Union in the cases listed below

    • absence of competition for technical reasons

Modification is being made under Reg 72.1.b as increased referrals into the service requires a budget increase. A change of contractor cannot be made as this would result in substantial additional cost to the Council and would cause confusion for service users.
