5 Other Information

5.1

Additional Information

Please note the Council have stated this contract will run for a period of up to three years. The Council will not agree to “rolling contracts” due to the consideration below. The use of such an automatic extension clause would place the Council in breach of the Public Contracts (Scotland) Regulations 2012 if it were to result in an agreed extension period outwith the scope of the original contract notice, as the combined contract sum for the rolling period would exceed the relevant threshold and/or the guidance set out in SGPD Procurement Policy Notes.
