Section IV: Procedure

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:

The variations are to be implemented in accordance with the variation procedure set out in the DSA. The Trust is of the view that the variations to the DSA between the Trust and IHSS are not substantial within the meaning of Regulation 72(8) of the Public Contracts Regulations 2015 as none of the conditions in sub-sections (a) to (e) of this Regulation is met. By way of further background, the DSA between the Trust and IHSS will be varied so as to allow: (i) decontamination of endoscopes to be carried out by IHSS at premises external to the Trust (which technological advances now permit), subject to specified performance requirements; and (ii) to enable this, the sale to IHSS at market value of the Trust's existing stocks of serviceable endoscopes and an additional element of supply by IHSS to the Trust of endoscopes on a pay per use basis to maintain required inventory levels. The proposed changes to the supply of endoscopes result in IHSS assuming additional inventory risk, for the benefit of the Trust. The supply by IHSS of the flexible endoscopes is part of the wider managed service IHSS is required to provide under the DSA. This would enable a better, more efficient service to be provided by IHSS as a result of single point responsibility in relation to inventory management of flexible endoscopes, and the minimisation of additional interfaces.
