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 pseudo-framework currently reopens on an annual basis. The authority will need to delay the 2020 reopening until June 2021.

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:

Notification of further delay to reopening of the framework in 2020. The Covid pandemic has been an unforeseen urgency which has impacted on providers, particularly in this front line area. An initial delay to September 2020 was undertaken to allow the market and the authority to undertake a fair and open process. Circumstances, particularly the continued inability of the market to respond to a tender process, mean a further delay until June 2021 is now being notified.

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: 14 000 000.00 GBP
Total contract value after the modifications
Value excluding VAT: 14 000 000.00 GBP
