IV.1)Type of procedure
Award of a contract without prior publication of a contract notice in the Official Journal of the European Union (in the cases listed in Section 2 of Annexes D1, D2 or D3 as appropriate)
Justification for the choice of the negotiated procedure without prior publication of a contract notice in the OJEU in accordance with Directive 2004/18/EC
The BT Accumulate Contract and the PV10 Contract were previously purchased through a CCS Framework. We were not made aware of this change until the extensions for the original contracts were due, which meant that there was not enough time to re-procure.
BT have agreed to continue to provide the calls and lines with the same discount as CCS.
The Council's ICT Strategy is currently being reviewed, which will include how calls and lines will be purchased in the future. This direct award should cover the period of the review and any resulting procurement.
