Communications and Engagement Support Services for Watford Borough Council.
This Notice is a Modification to a Contract in accordance with Article of Directive 2014/24/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council Art 72 and relates to an IT Managed Service contract with Contract Award Notice reference 2013/S 073-122110 which was first published in the OJEU on 13.4.2013.
It became apparent that the existing Local Area Network (LAN) would not support the transformed services, notably the Virtual Desktop (VDI) solution, without some remediation. The contract has been changed to incorporate this remediation work which involves some new fibre-optic cabling and replacing some network switches.
Nature and extent of the modifications (with indication of possible earlier changes to the contract):
The existing Local Area Network (LAN) needs some remediation work to deliver the level of services the Authority requires. The contract change incorporates this remediation work which involves some new fibre-optic cabling and replacing some network switches.
The contract price has not changed. The ‘must do’ remediation work is being funded through a combination of accrued service credits, investment by the supplier and a slight reduction in scope based on the use of ‘Voice over IP’ and not doing the device refresh in the final year (year 5).
