Section IV: Procedure

IV.1)Description
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
Explanation:

The Northern Ireland Housing Executive Awarded this contract in July 2018, with a start date of 1 August 2018 and an end date of 22 January 2020. Whilst the start date of the contract was August 2018, due to operational issues the commencement of work under the contract was delayed. Therefore the Housing Executive exercised its right under Regulation 72 (1) (f) of the Public Contract Regulations 2015 to extend the term of this contract by a period of six months in order that the operational phase of the contract was utilized as originally intended. This resulted in the end dates of the contracts changing from 22 January 2020, until 22 July 2020.

The Covid-19 outbreak caused operations on site to stop. As a result the NIHE intends to exercise its right under Regulation 72 (1) (f) of the Public Contracts Regulations 2015 to extend the term of the contract by a period of 4 months, resulting in the end date of the contract changing from 22 July 2020 to 20 November 2020 in order that the operation phase of the contract is utilized as originally intended. The Housing Executive does not consider this modification to alter the overall nature or value of the contract. Furthermore, should the value of the contract be altered, which the Housing Executive believes to be unlikely, the Housing Executive believes that any such change in value shall be below the relevant threshold and 15 % of the initial contract value.
