Limit of Liability of £208,000. Justification For Non-Competitive Decision: The contract is exempt from the EU Regulations (DSPCR 2011) due to it being below the financial threshold. The Authority is contracting Event Horizon Pyrotechnics Ltd to build on existing proof of concept/capability demonstrations for multiple concepts that they delivered under previous contracts with the UK MOD in order to prove those concepts are compatible and functional products. This work is still classified as proof of concept. We consider that competing this capability would result in re-work of Event Horizon’s existing findings from 2016. Contracting another supplier would result in a loss of the technical know-how and experience that Event Horizon has developed in the previous contracts, which is fundamental to proving the concept of these capabilities. The consequences of running a competition for this work would not result in value for money for the Authority due to the disproportionate costs it would require for a new supplier to become technically competent.
