II.2.4) Description of the procurement Radar, Compasses, Radio beacons, Repairs, Spares and PDS in respect of CPLS, Weather Radar and Radio Compass Equipment. II.2.11) Information about options Options: No II.2.13) Information about European Union funds The procurement is related to a project and/or programme financed by European Union funds: No Section IV: Procedure IV.1) Description IV.1.1) Type of procedure Negotiated procedure without publication of a contract notice Justification for selected award procedure: The works, supplies or services can be provided only by a particular economic operator for the following reason: protection of exclusive rights, including intellectual property rights Explanation: The Air Commodities Team, part of the UK Ministry of Defence intends to extend contract number ACCOMM1B/7047 with Muirhead Avionics Limited (the ‘Company’) for a period of 12 months from 31.12.2017 to 31.12.2018 to continue repairs, spares and PDS in respect of CPLS, Weather Radar and Radio Compass Equipment, and for the purchase of further PRC-112 radios. The PRC-112 is a handheld military radio with covert capability including GPS, UHF Satcom digital 2-way messaging and encryption. The contract extension will increase the budgetary level by 6 792 699.08 GBP (VAT ex). It is considered that the contract can be extended using the negotiated procedure without prior publication of a contract notice pursuant to Article 28(1)(e) of Directive 2009/81/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council (Regulation 16(1)(a)(ii) of the Defence and Security Public Contracts Regulations 2011) for reasons connected with the protection of exclusive rights. PRC-112 radios are ITAR controlled items and the OEM is General Dynamics, a US based company. The Company is ITAR approved, which is a mandatory requirement for General Dynamics in order to supply the Company. The Company is the only economic operator within the UK with a distribution license from the OEM. The OEM has issued distribution licenses to other companies outside the UK, however the PRC-112 radios contain classified (UK Eyes Only) information and therefore the Company is the only economic operator able to distribute PRC-112 within the UK. It is also considered that the contract can be extended using the negotiated procedure without prior publication of a contract notice pursuant to Article 28 (3)(a) of Directive 2009/81/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council (Regulation 16(1)(b)(i) of the Defence and Security Public Contracts Regulations 2011). Obliging the MOD to procure an alternative radio from a manufacturer other than the Company would result in the radios having different technical characteristics, which would result in incompatibility between the purchased radios and the aircraft and result in disproportionate technical difficulties in the operation and maintenance of the existing radios. In addition integration and testing would be required to ensure that the radio frequency does not affect the ability of each aircraft. There is only one other radio on the market that can offer the same capability and will not cause integration issues with regards to its size and the need to fit in service life jackets, however this is not accessible to the Authority as the OEM will not issue for UK use.
