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 procurement falls outside the scope of application of the directive
Explanation:

Bedfordshire Police have determined that the expansion of the existing servers is the most economically prudent route to take. The existing servers are Jetstor and VSPL are the sole provider of the goods and associated warranties within the UK.

This is based on the justification contained with Regulation 32(2)(b)(ii), where the supplies can be supplied only by a particular economic operator as competition is absent for technical reasons, namely the sole supplier rights for Jetstor servers.
