(EU, EURATOM) 2018/1046) consisting in the repetition of similar services. The conditions of point 11.1(e) of Annex I to Financial Regulation (Reg. (EU, EURATOM) 2018/1046) has been met, i.e.: the use of this negotiated procedure was announced in the initial open tender procedure, the increase represent less than 50 % of the initial contract value, the other conditions of the initial open tender procedure are not altered and the procedure is concluded within three years after the framework contract’s signature.
