• programmability and usability;
• system stability;
• power and energy efficiency;
• computing density.

The number of candidates is not limited. Please consult the procurement documents available at the address indicated in Section I.3).
As an option, tenderers may offer an extension or modification of the system so that the system including the option also meets the required technical specifications but uses less energy to achieve them. The maximum value of the option is EUR 20 000 000.
The rationale of this option is to allow for a larger investment if this results in operating cost savings over the planned five-year lifetime of the system. The option will be taken into consideration under the condition that the value of the operating cost savings is at least as high as the value of the option. The value of the energy savings will be estimated as part of the TCO evaluation in cost performance analysis.
The option is optional for the contracting authority who has the right to acquire it or not, but not the tenderers who have to include them in their technical and financial tender.
