Can you exceed or change the Estimated Total Value of an OJEU notice?
If you publish an OJEU notice that states your estimated total value to be £50m and you find after year 2 the value going through is going to be significantly more what are the implications in exceeding this value? I realise a new framework should be issued but is it not possible to change the estimated value if nothing else has changed - i.e. still supply the same product/services as stated in the framework it has just proved to be more popular than anticipated
Hi Stefanie, Regulation 72 in the Public Contract Regulations might be of assistance which is around 'Safe Harbours' around Modifications of Contracts.
That’ll depend on your budgetary control! Yes it’s possible as the estimate in the initial Contract Notice is just that.
Once you’ve had bids in and selected a supplier, then you can put the final award or contract value in the Award Notice.
