Other Information

This contract was advertised as set out above. However, in law this advertisement was incorrect and it was then a services concession contract with no 'inter-state element' and Rugby Borough Council voluntarily decided to comply with the Public Contracts Regulations 2006 when there was no obligation to do so. It is now a 'light touch' services concession contract pursuant to the Concession Contracts Regulations 2016 as since the contract was entered into the law has changed. The contract which was entered into was a contract for 10 years from 1st April 2013 with a modification clause which allowed the parties to extend it for up to a further five years from its 1st April 2023 subject to the terms of the said contractual clause. The identified value of the contract in the original notice did not take into account the 5 year extension which would have added about £10,000,000 to the value of the contract. The value of the contract at present taking into account the 5 year extension is now calculated at about £32,000,000. The value of the contract with the 8 year extension is now calculated as approximately £40,000,000. However, it should be noted that the original calculations were not carried out at the relevant time. The original OJEU number of the original contract notice and award notice are not known and can no longer be searched for on TED (only notices 2014 onwards are available), hence the reason for a dummy number being entered. A restricted procedure was followed - to the best of our knowledge the contract notice was placed on or around 12/06/2012 with the PQQ documents being published soon afterwards via the Delta e-sourcing portal, followed by the ITT documents which were published in September 2012 .
