Section II: Object
UCA 16/003 — Hire of video walls to be installed in the building during European summits.
The contract is for the hire of video walls. This must include assembly and dismantling as well as on-site technical support during the event. Where appropriate, the video walls will also be used during other Secretariat events (open days, etc.).
The aim of this procedure is to hire video walls to be installed in the Atrium of the Justus Lipsius Building of the General Secretariat of the Council during European summits.
For many years, 2 video walls have been installed in the Atrium of the Secretariat's Justus Lipsius Building during European summits and sometimes during other events with high media coverage. This is because the Secretariat's Press Department needs an effective display system to provide journalists with information quickly. To this end, the video walls shall:
— show live, and thus promote, public activities related to the summits, such as round table discussions, doorstep interviews, press conferences, etc.,
— provide, quickly and easily viewable, practical information such as times and meeting points for press pools, press conference announcements, logistics information, etc.
The summits are normally held 4–8 times a year — usually on Thursdays/Fridays — and last for 2 days.
contract duration: up to 4 years;
initial duration: 2 years, which may be renewed for 2 further 1-year periods.
there is no limit on the number of candidates.
The General Secretariat of the Council shall not publish the estimated value of the contracts. The estimated volume of the contract is stated in the specifications.
Section III: Legal, economic, financial and technical information
Working language: the habitual working languages used for performance of the services will be English and/or French.
