Copernicus COP_049 Provision of a Massive Online Course (MOOC) on Climate
The European Centre for Medium-range Weather Forecast (ECMWF) as the entrusted Entity for the Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S), issued an invitation to tender (ITT) for the Provision of a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on climate.
On contractor's premises.
Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S) are looking to extend the contents of their learning services with a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) to provide a free course on climate science applied to sectoral climate-sensitive decisions. This MOOC will provide tools to understand and use the open data served by C3S via the Climate Data Store (CDS) for applications that demonstrate how climate data can be accessed, transformed and made relevant to address specific contexts. The MOOC will differentiate itself from the existing market in being specific to the C3S mission and products.
C3S are seeking a supplier who will provide an end-to-end MOOC service covering course development, instructional design, content production, interactivity and course delivery.

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.
