DE_330 On-demand Extremes Digital Twin
ECMWF, as the Entrusted Entity for the Destination Earth Programme (DestinE), invites tenders for the provision of the On-demand Extremes Digital Twin. ECMWF intends to award a single contract for a maximum duration of 22 months, expected to commence by mid-July 2022, and with an end date not later than 30 April 2024.
On contractor's premises.
DestinE will deploy several high resolution thematic digital replicas of the Earth system to monitor and simulate natural and human activities as well as their interactions, to develop and test scenarios that would enable more sustainable developments and support European policy making. DestinE is intended to unlock the potential of observations and both physics-based and data-driven models for achieving a break-through in the realism of the simulation of Earth-system components.
This Invitation to Tender covers the provision of the On-demand Extremes DT delivering a configurable, demonstration-ready capability for a flexible European monitoring and prediction framework providing decision-making support at continental, country, coastline, catchment and city scales in response to meteorological, hydrological and air quality extremes. This capability aims to combine weather, hydrology and air-quality observation and simulation capabilities at a qualitatively new level of on-demand information discovery, also providing uncertainty quantification. The demonstration of co-design with selected use-cases showing societal adaptation and mitigation options for dealing with the impacts of extreme events is included.
Tenderers should submit proposals that demonstrate their ability to deliver high-quality, production-type capabilities with a strong foundation in advanced science, impact science, research and digital technology development. The offers will be evaluated on their scientific and technology innovation, impact-sector (e.g. energy, water, food, health) use-case relevance and progress over existing capabilities, and documented expertise and ability to fulfil production-type requirements for providing support for an effective risk management, adaptation and mitigation policy framework.

Section IV: Procedure
ECMWF's eProcurement Portal
Section VI: Complementary information
Procedure to be applied:
The procurement for the contract will be conducted in accordance with ECMWF's procedures as set out in Invitation to Tender documents, which will be 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.
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.
Eligibility: Refer to Section 3.2 of Volume I of the ITT documents.
