This report proposes a contract variation to
allow for the purchase of additional NEC (Northgate) Housing
Modules and associated professional services.
The variation is needed due to the following reasons:
• The original Northgate consultancy days applied to the contract was not sufficient to cover the 5-year period of the contract to support annual BAU and project activity
• Northgate have just released in September 2021 a series of new service software modules in their upgrade to version V21.1. These modules were not available at the time of the contract signing
• This variation order will cover the support and maintenance costs as well as the implementation costs for the lifetime of the contract
The variation has included all known additional costs for the remainder of the lifetime of the contract so that only one variation be applied to the contract for its entirety.
