Section IV: Procedure

IV.1.1)Type of procedure
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
  • The procurement falls outside the scope of application of the directive

Legal basis:

In a letter dated 28.2.2018, the Ministry of Local Government and Modernisation stated that the legal procurement principles and legal practices do not impose any injunction against the continuation of contracts when there are changes in the municipal structure and a change of municipal name when merging. This means that it is the framework in the procurement regulations that otherwise indicates which changes can be made in ongoing contracts for municipalities that are merging.

For contracts over the EEA threshold value, § 28-1 of the procurement regulations states the changes that are permitted in the existing contract, while § 28-2 states what will be considered significant changes and which are therefore not allowed under the procurement regulations.

The most relevant are:

— § 28-1 (1) letter c): For certain additional deliveries from the original supplier, when the price rise does not exceed 50 % of the original contract value (N.B. Specific conditions must be met),

— § 28-1 (1) letter d): In unforeseen circumstances such as an attentive Contracting Authority could not foresee, when the price increase does not exceed 505 of the original contract value (N.B. Specific conditions must be met),

— § 28-1 (1) letter b): When the value of the amendment does not exceed the EEA threshold values and at the same tie does not exceed 10 % of the original goods contract/service contract (15 % for building and construction contracts). However, there is a requirement that the general character of the procurement does not changed. Where multiple changes are made one after the other, the price increase must be calculated on the basis of the combined price increase that results from all of the changes.
