Section IV: Procedure

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
  • New works/services, constituting a repetition of existing works/services and ordered in accordance with the strict conditions stated in the directive

The original City of Edinburgh contract award notice, 2014/S 024-038205, noted the scope of ICT services to be delivered as including all ICT services presently delivered, those contemplated to be delivered by 2016 and all future ICT requirements of the City of Edinburgh Council and the contracting authorities named in the original contract notice. It further noted a requirement for a contract which is sufficiently flexible and scalable so as to provide a long-term resolution that offers significant future-proofing. The estimated value excluding VAT was noted to be in the range: between GBP 150 000 000 and GBP 2 000 000 000. Scottish Borders Council is one of three of the named authorities currently contracted pursuant to the arrangements awarded under 2014/S024-038205 with an overall anticipated spend well within the value range notified to the market in 2014 (SBC substantive contract awarded 2016 for a period of 13 years with optional 6-year extension and a likely spend of GBP 179 million) such that the additional scope and spend remains an application of the original terms within the scope of the original contract notice. This ensures the requirements of EC Directive 2004/18/C as incorporated into Scots Law by the Public Contracts (Scotland) Regulations 2015 are met.
