Copernicus C3S_34d Provision of Additional World-Wide CORDEX Simulations for the C3S Climate Data Store
ECMWF as the Entrusted Entity for the Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S) invites tenders for the implementation of additional CORDEX data in the C3S Climate Data Store (CDS).
On contractor's premises.
ECMWF as the Entrusted Entity for the Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S) invites tenders for the implementation of additional CORDEX data in the C3S Climate Data Store (CDS). At present only data from EURO-CORDEX and MED-CORDEX domains are being incorporated into the CDS, cf. https://climate.copernicus.eu/climate-projections
However, requirements from a variety of users have highlighted the need to include data for other regions of the world as well. This ITT invites bids to identify currently available data for additional CORDEX regions, with the objective for these datasets to be included in the CDS. The work will connect with and expand on the activities performed in various C3S Climate Projections contracts.
Copernicus - The European Earth Observation Programme (http://www.copernicus.eu/)

Section IV: Procedure
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.
