Copernicus C3S_434 CDS Interface to Climate-ADAPT
ECMWF, as the Entrusted Entity for the Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S), invites tenders for services focused on developing a suitable interface between the Climate Data Store and the climate-adapt platform.
On contractor's premises.
ECMWF, as the entrusted entity for the Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S), invites tenders for services focused on developing a suitable interface between the Climate Data Store (CDS) and the climate-adapt platform to ensure the latter can take full advantage of the operational nature of the C3S infrastructure.
The service shall deliver a set of climate indicators (essential climate variables, indices and impact indicators) suited for the climate-adapt platform and make them available, via the CDS, on the climate-adapt site as a set of dynamical maps and graphs.
Although the primary goal is to make suitable indicators available on the climate-adapt site, the primary deliverable of the contract shall be a series of workflows (python scripts to run on the CDS-toolbox platform) able to generate the above-mentioned indicators, visualise them and make the visualised data available for download. Depending on the computational expense of the code, the user demand and the storage requirement, the workflows can in some cases be the sole deliverable of the contract as the data can, in some cases, be regenerated on demand each time the user requires it.
ECMWF intends to award a single framework contract running for a period of maximum 12 months.

Section VI: Complementary information
The procurement for the contract will be conducted in accordance with ECMWF's procedures as set out in ECMWF's Invitation to Tender documents, which are available on ECMWF's eProcurement Portal (http://procurement.ecmwf.int/) and no other procedures will apply. In submitting this notice ECMWF does not waive the privileges and immunities granted to it by virtue of its status as an Intergovernmental Organisation or submit itself to any jurisdiction. Tenders must be submitted using ECMWF's eProcurement Portal. Hard copy (paper) submissions will not be accepted.
Tenders will not be eligible unless they are submitted by persons or entities based or registered in a member state of the EU or in a member state of ECMWF.
ECMWF will only enter into a contract with a single legal person/entity. Due to the need to include performance and compliance obligations in the contract, ECMWF will contract only with a single legal person or entity which is competent to undertake and commit to these obligations.
ECMWF recognises that some bids will involve a number of organisations which may wish to work together to deliver the contract requirements. In such cases, these organisations must identify a lead contractor who will sign the contract with ECMWF and who will be responsible for putting in place legal arrangements to ensure that it can guarantee that all other organisations will also meet the contract obligations.
ECMWF will not enter into multiple contracts with individual members of consortia or groups of service providers.
