Regarding Lot II:
The estimated value of the contract regarding Lot II was 400 000 000,00 DKK, cf. contract notice, Section II.2.6).
Defence Command Denmark has assessed the received offers regarding Lot II in light of the estimated value of the contract, cf. contract notice, Section II.2.6).
The calculated Total evaluation Prices based on the offered prices for the contract regarding Lot II – including and excluding the offered discounts – exceeded the estimated value of the contract, cf. contract notice, Section II.2.6), with 20-129 %. Furthermore, all the offered prices for ”Total annual price for the services, not including Block Hours”, cf. appendix D, in itself exceeded the estimated value of the contract, cf. contract notice, Section II.2.6). For this reason, Defence Command Denmark has decided that the contract regarding LOT II could not be prioritized due to these cost implications.
Accordingly, Defence Command Denmark has decided to terminate the tender procedure regarding Lot II without an award, cf. Instructions to Tenderers (Lot II), clause 8.
