VII.2)Information about modifications
VII.2.1)Description of the modifications
Nature and extent of the modifications (with indication of possible earlier changes to the contract):

Due to the additional requirement for FES Study and the survey being conducted during Purdah revised delivery approaches were provided to Authority and ‘Sequential’ delivery approach was selected which would meet timelines available and minimise the risks involved. This agreed option required additional resource and increased value and slight extension to contract end date.

VII.2.2)Reasons for modification
Need for modification brought about by circumstances which a diligent contracting authority/entity could not foresee (Art. 43(1)(c) of Directive 2014/23/EU, Art. 72(1)(c) of Directive 2014/24/EU, Art. 89(1)(c) of Directive 2014/25/EU)
Description of the circumstances which rendered the modification necessary and explanation of the unforeseen nature of these circumstances:

Due to unforeseen and the short notice call for election and impact of this on the surveys delay due to Purdah, the Authority and contractor were required to agree a new delivery approach to enable timelines to be met.

VII.2.3)Increase in price
Updated total contract value before the modifications (taking into account possible earlier contract modifications and price adaptions and, in the case of Directive 2014/23/EU, average inflation in the Member State concerned)
Value excluding VAT: 61 016.00 GBP
