The contract will be for an initial term of 5 months with the option to extend on the same terms for a further 19 months. Therefore the contract value of £800,000 is based upon the full 24 month duration.
The break clause is being implemented to both ensure the contract is delivering the requirement and if funding will be available for the remaining 19 months since funding will be subject to the 2020 Comprehensive Spending Review.
