VII.2.1)Description of the modifications
Nature and extent of the modifications (with indication of possible earlier changes to the contract):

Increase of the global ceiling for the framework contract.

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:

The increase in the ceiling was prompted by the following factors:

1. the accelerated consumption under the OASIS II FwC, linked to unforeseen events (such as the COVID-19 pandemic and the war in Ukraine); and

2. the new complementary services arising from EC programs (such as the EC cloud strategy, the local data centre consolidation, Commission’s IT security strategy), which were implemented much faster than expected.

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)
