Nature and extent of the modifications (with indication of possible earlier changes to the contract):

The period of the current contract 12813 is to be extended by a further period of 3 months plus allowance for a further 3 months.

VII.2.2)Reasons for modification
Need for modification brought about by circumstances which a diligent contracting authority/entity could not foresee (Art. 43(1)(c) of Directive 2014/23/EU, Art. 72(1)(c) of Directive 2014/24/EU, Art. 89(1)(c) of Directive 2014/25/EU)
Description of the circumstances which rendered the modification necessary and explanation of the unforeseen nature of these circumstances:

These modifications are made under the provisions set out in Regulation 72 (1) (c) (i), (ii) and (iii). Procurement Policy Note - Responding to COVID-19 PPN 01/20 (pp 6-7) also refers.

The need for contract modification has been brought about by the circumstances of COVID-19 which have meant resources in the Contracting Authority have been redirected to efforts to support front line Health & Social Care activities, including direct care for patients and efforts to support supply chain activities. As a result, scheduled re-tendering activity was delayed while the circumstances are present.

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)

Total contract value after the modifications
Value excluding VAT: 7 625 530.00 GBP
