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):

In the frame of the initial operations of the Galileo Reference Centre (which are provided in the frame of specific contract 2 under the framework contract GSA/OP/20/15), it became necessary to procure unidirectional network devices (data diodes) compatible with optical fiber capability for use within the GRC operational networks (Unclassified and Classified).

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:

In the hosting agreement on the GRC with the Netherlands (NL), NL were asked to deliver an area within the GRC classified up to Restreint level specifying that such area might be accredited at Secret level in the future. However, NL installed a Faraday cage within the GRC to house the classified operational infrastructure, thus ensuring protection of EU Classified Info against compromise through unintentional electromagnetic emanations. In order to utilise this cage without compromise and in order to adhere to the tempest measures,it was necessary to implement the classified operational network using optical-fiber network media.When the GRC tender was launched, it was not yet known that the GRC would be delivered with its classified operational network built with the use of optical fiber cabling. Therefore, it was considered that the provision of diodes built with the use of standard copper Ethernet cabling (as proposed by the Contractor) would be compliant with tender requirements.

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: 6 320 977.16 EUR
Total contract value after the modifications
Value excluding VAT: 6 497 099.66 EUR
