During the course of the contract period the range and scope of these services may be subject to modification and variation as necessary to meet the changing needs and requirements of the Council, changes in legislation and the changing demands placed on the Council by its customers. These changes may include (but are not limited to):
• increases or decreases in the use of apprenticeships;
• the identification of additional service recipients, not originally captured by the scope of the contract;
• environmental and new technological opportunities which impact on the use of this provision and the Councils own services;
• necessary additional services, products or customer base required to maintain the provision but not identified nor required at the time of tendering.
Full details of the current service requirements can be found in the DPS Documentation.
The estimated contract value is inflated to cover potential but currently unrealised spend.
The period of validity of the DPS will be until 30 September 2025 but the Council reserves the right to amend, shorten or extend this period of validity to meet the requirements of the authorities involved.
