Section IV: Procedure

IV.1)Description
IV.1.1)Type of procedure
Negotiated procedure without publication of a contract notice
  • 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 Air Commodities Team, part of the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD), intends to award a 21 month extension to Meggit UK Ltd T/A Avionics for the repair of AMOS MK2 Consoles and Type 417F Oxygen Regulators Enabling Contract commencing April 2017.

It is considered that this extension can be awarded using the negotiated procedure without prior publication of a contract notice pursuant to Article 28(1)(e) of Directive 2009/81/EC (Regulation 16(1)(a)(ii) of the UK Defence and Security Public Contracts Regulations 2011 (DSPCR). This is due to a strict technical impracticality for any other economic operator to undertake the work required within this proposed contract. The requirement to obtain the necessary licenses, tools, test equipment and knowledge to undertake PDS activities, manufacture spares and undertake repairs within the life of the proposed contract would not be achievable. This would impact the users' ability to safely operate the affected aircraft, which would result in aircraft being grounded and capability being lost.

Another economic operator would not have the knowledge and in-use reliability data to be able to undertake fault investigations which could result in the grounding of the aircraft and the Authority would not be able to fulfil its safety requirements to ensure the safe functioning of the affected air platforms. As a result, Meggit UK Ltd T/A Avionics is the only company with the product expertise to undertake PDS activities for the equipment covered by the scope of this requirement.
