Section IV: Procedure

IV.1)Description
IV.1.1)Type of procedure
Negotiated procedure without prior publication
  • Additional deliveries by the original supplier ordered under the strict conditions stated in the directive
Explanation:

The Defence Science and Technology Laboratory, part of the UK Ministry of Defence, intends to award a supply contract to Agilent Technologies Ltd for the supply of two Agilent 7890B Series gas chromatography mass spectrometry flame photometric detection systems. The total value is 150 000 GBP.

It is considered that this contract can be placed using the negotiated procedure without prior publication pursuant to Article 32(5)(b) of Directive 2014/24/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council should read Article 32(3)(b) of Directive 2014/24/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council.

DSTL wish to purchase 2 identical Agilent 7890B equipment, which is the only system allowing for the simultaneous collection of both mass spectrographic (either electron or chemical ionisation) and dual flame photometric detection data. The Agilent 7890B systems are identical to the current capability that The Defence Science and Technology Laboratory Analytical Chemistry area holds and validation on the current systems has already been performed. This validation is required to use the instruments for ISO 17025:2005 accredited method. If different instruments were used then significant changes to the accredited methods, subsequent validation and training would be required. To ensure continuity of the validation, the same system has to be used so that the assays are compatible with both instruments and perform to the same specifications. This work will not be transferable to any other detection system as the instrument settings have been optimised for use on the Agilent 7890B. Attempting to transfer to another system would invalidate all work to this point resulting in significant time and cost consequences.

A change of supplier would oblige the MoD to acquire a system which would have different technical characteristics resulting in incompatibility and disproportionate technical difficulties in operation.
