Annex D1 - General Procurement
Justification for the award of the contract without prior publication of a call for competition in the Official Journal of the European Union
Directive 2014/24/EU

1. Justification for the choice of the negotiated procedure without prior publication of a call for competition in accordance with Article 32 of Directive 2014/24/EU

   No tenders or no suitable tenders/requests to participate in response to: Not provided

   
   
   The works, supplies or services can be provided only by a particular economic operator for the following reason: absence of competition for technical reasons
   
   Extreme urgency brought about by events unforeseeable for the contracting authority and in accordance with the strict conditions stated in the directive: No
   
   Additional deliveries by the original supplier ordered under the strict conditions stated in the directive: No

   New works/services, constituting a repetition of existing works/services and ordered in accordance with the strict conditions stated in the directive: No

   Service contract to be awarded to the winner or one of winners under the rules of a design contest: No

   

   Purchase of supplies or services on particularly advantageous terms: Not Provided



3. Explanation

   Please explain in a clear and comprehensive manner why the award of the contract without prior publication in the Official Journal of the European Union is
   lawful, by stating the relevant facts and, as appropriate, the conclusions of law in accordance with the directive: (500 words maximum)
   iNHouse Communications is uniquely positioned to deliver the service required by Hyde due to the close working relationship that the Chair and Managing Director have with the current Government. No other service provider can offer the level of access within Government circles that these individuals can. The support services they offer are unique and they have an unparalleled track record within the sector.
Hyde’s assessment is that iNHouse Communications is singularly placed to not only design the service but also to execute it in practice. The founding partners provide unique access to senior decision makers, the workings of this Government, and skills to assist Hyde in delivering its objectives.
Hyde is therefore of the view that if it were to seek to procure the Contract in accordance with the Regulations, competition would be absent for technical reasons as no service provider in the market would be able to provide the unique access to policy makers that iNHouse can.
