Copernicus CAMS_42 Development of Global Reactive Gases Aspects
This ITT, entitled “Development of global reactive gases aspects”, is for providing support for and further development of the global production system of CAMS operated at ECMWF, which delivers 3D distributions of reactive gases in the troposphere and stratosphere through data assimilation and numerical modelling.
On Contractor's premises.
This ITT, entitled “Development of global reactive gases aspects”, is for providing support for and further development of the global production system of CAMS operated at ECMWF, which delivers 3D distributions of reactive gases in the troposphere and stratosphere through data assimilation and numerical modelling. The successful tenderer will be expected to deliver improvements to the chemistry schemes and the related parameterisations of source and sink processes in the CAMS global production system. Further, the successful tenderer will be expected to provide comprehensive documentation and to contribute to the development of chemistry-specific CAMS products to attract a wider range of users for CAMS. The successful tenderer will also advise the team working on the global production system at ECMWF. The ITT targets organisations with considerable experience in the field modelling of reactive gases in the atmosphere.
The Framework Agreement will run from 1.10.2019 to 31.12.2021. The tenderer shall provide a detailed implementation plan of proposed activities for the period until 30.6.2021. However, note that by Q4 2019 the level and duration of activities for the full year of 2021 will be communicated by ECMWF to the successful tenderer based on the copernicus programme review by the European Commission.

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.
