Accelerated procedure
Justification:

The procurement is being conducted under the Light Touch Regime. However, even without the light touch regime being applicable; we would have satisfied the criteria to allow for the use of the accelerated procedure

The Covid-19 outbreak has given rise to an urgent need for employment support because of the large numbers of people expected to become unemployed as a result of the economic impact of Covid-19. This does not give Ealing Council sufficient time to comply with the standard open procedure timescales for this procurement. Ealing Council considers this to be a state of urgency which it has duly substantiated. Accordingly, Ealing Council is using the accelerated time limits permitted under the Public Contract Regulations 2015 (regulation 27(5)) in respect of this procurement.
