ANNEX D

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 products involved are manufactured purely for the purpose of research, experiment, study or development under the conditions stated in the directive (for supplies only): No

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



Procurement of supplies quoted and purchased on a commodity market: No

Purchase of supplies or services on particularly advantageous terms: No


3. Explanation
UKRI have awarded this contract based on our requirement for an analyser that is able to measure the diffusion co-efficient of biomolecules, calculate hydrodynamic radius and measure monodispersion, aggregation and viscosity. UKRI required a system able to analyse biomolecules in complicated liquids like blood serum or cell lysates. No other suppliers offer equipment with the required functionality or sensitivity. UKRI awarded a contract to Fida Biosystems ApS as the only provider of equipment capable of meeting our requirements and considers that award of a contract without prior publication of a call for competition is justified under regulation 32(2)(b)(ii) of the PCR 2015 because competition is absent for technical reasons.
