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):
The current EEM contract for the supply only of doors and windows was awarded in in April 2011 for an initial 120 month term with an expiry date of the 31 March 2021. Due to the circumstances described in this notice, it will now continue until 1 April 2022.
In December 2020, EEM advertised the re-tender of this provision under contract notice 2020/S 241-595163. Unfortunately, following the tender period only one submission was received before the deadline, we believe that the lack of tenders was caused by the current impact of Covid and the national lockdowns pre and post Christmas. Organisations are facing the continuing imposition of significant business restrictions and uncertainty and it is clear that many organisations within this market are not be in a position to commit and respond to lengthy tender processes or commit to new opportunities.
Due to the current ongoing situation with the Covid-19 outbreak and the fact that our attempt to renew our current arrangement has failed we have called on Regulation 72 (1) (c) to extend this framework for 12 months. We believe this will help businesses continue to recover and deliver services and goods to our Members and reduce the pressure on the supply chain at this critical time. Requesting businesses to complete lengthy and complex tenders over the coming months may divert resources away from supporting the Public Sector; particularly for such an important compliance service; something we wish to avoid. In addition staff capacity and availability have been impacted by the current pandemic and we expect a continuation of disruption over the coming months due to the likely ongoing local lockdowns/restrictions well in to the spring.
In addition to the above, EEM seek to generate high levels of competition within the market to ensure the very best value for money for our Members. This is not something we have been able to achieve with the attempted re-tender and believe that this cannot be achieved in the short term as businesses continue to make the difficult decisions in their operations, pricing and staffing levels. EEM intends to deliver a replacement framework agreement for this current Contract as quickly as possible. EEM confirm that the modification does not change the overall nature of the framework and the modification will not exceed 50 % of the original contract value.

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)
