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):

The addition of Ghana into the WISH scope of services is in line with DFID’s objectives to support Ghana to self-finance its own health services (which include sustainable family planning services, as per the requirements of WISH) and the WISH contract's identification of the importance of learning lessons from Ghana, Kenya and South Africa. Ghana will therefore be included in the WISH core contract overall scope and services will be delivered by the WISH Lot 1 incumbent supplier, MSI, for the duration of the contract.

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:

The services required for Ghana exactly match the services already being delivered under WISH Lot 1. DFID have established that this cannot be procured independently from the WISH programme as, due to the opportune placement of the incumbent supplier delivering the same services under WISH Lot 1, and due to the limited size of the international family planning market, this could not represent good value for money and would risk duplication of cost and resource. This increase in scope is allowable under the original OJEU advert value increase options which are up to an additional 38 000 000 GBP above the contract award value of 77 000 000 GBP for Lot 1.

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: 77 000 000.00 GBP
Total contract value after the modifications
Value excluding VAT: 81 500 000.00 GBP
