Section IV: Procedure

IV.1)Description
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
  • The works, supplies or services can be provided only by a particular economic operator for the following reason:
    • absence of competition for technical reasons
Explanation:

The Fast Air Support Team (FAST), part of the UK Ministry of Defence, intends to award a contract to Cranfield Aerospace Solutions Ltd (CAeS) to provide support to trials and assessments of the vibration and temperature environment of the Typhoon Smart Dispenser System using Air Countermeasure Data Loggers (ACDL).

It is considered that for technical reasons this requirement can be placed using the Negotiated Procedure without prior publication of a contract notice pursuant to Article 28(1)(e) of the Directive 2009/81/EC (Regulation 16(1)(a)(ii) of the UK Defence and Security Public Contracts Regulations 2011). This is because only CAeS has the requisite knowledge of the ACDL's having designed, manufactured, certified and maintained them. This ACDL is the only type that is cleared to operate with Typhoon aircraft. In addition, CAeS are the only economic operator able to certify the SDS for safety and airworthiness and therefore fulfil this requirement.
