The Astrid is the lead procurer for the group of purchasers, see list below under I.1) The applicable national legislation is Belgian law.
Section II: Object
PCP for innovation activities to make a pan-European mobile PPDR mobile system possible, with interoperability needed.
This pre-information notice provides early information on the planned pre-commercial procurement (PCP) and the open market consultation (WTO) that will be organised to prepare these PCP. Further details on the WTO are provided under II.2.4. It is not a call for competition, and Broadway is not compelled to give rise to competition.
The objective of Broadway is that the CFP is engaged in the development and testing of innovative solutions to address the following challenges: R & D aimed at developing the pan-European mobile broadband (with the interoperability required) for public support and public security, improving collaboration between intervention teams from different disciplines and various countries and enabling the mobility of relief and security services between different disciplines/countries.
These pre-commercial procurement (PCP) is a partnership funded by Horizon 2020 and Broadway. Broadway consists of the Astrid Public Safety Communication Europe (PSPCE).www.astrid.be) and a group of European buyers (listed in 1.1) who are either responsible for public security at national level or for emergency and security services, all facing the same challenges and looking for similar solutions. Astrid is the ‘lead procurer’ and all information about this CFP is available on the project’s website. http://www.broadway-info.eu/[...].
The aim of Broadway is to develop and test innovative solutions to address common challenges, inter alia in the event of industrial or natural disasters, serious traffic accidents, terrorist attacks and social conflict, that the lack of roaming and interoperability of communications between the PPDR rescue teams in different countries complicates the extreme.
Broadway intends to launch a call for competition to select the most innovative and competent operators to develop new solutions for pan-European operational mobility.
It will take the form of pre-commercial procurement (PCP) where R & D service contracts are awarded in parallel to a series of stages in a phased approach. This will make it possible to compare competing alternatives.
Each selected operator will be given a framework agreement covering 3 phases of R & D.
These 3 phases are:
3.Initial development, validation and testing of a limited set of first products and services.
Interim evaluations will follow each phase in order to gradually select the best competing solutions. The operators presenting the best solutions will be offered a specific contract for the next phase.
Tests and assessments are planned to take place in several locations, with a significant input from health and safety practitioners. They will take the form of realistic cross-border and organisational scenarios.
It is estimated that the CFP will end in December 2021.
Successful solutions would become the first point of reference for pan-European broadband (with interoperability needed) for the emergency and security public services of at least 11 buyers (i.e. the lead and buyers group).
Broadway wants to undertake an open market consultation to provide more information on its objectives, process and timing and to obtain feedback on the maturity of the technology and the ability of operators to innovate in this area. All the operators concerned will therefore be invited to participate in the WTO, regardless of their geographical position and the size or management structure of their organisation. The WTO will not engage the operators for the rest of the process.
Broadway intends to organise the WTO as a range of the following activities:
— an online questionnaire (scheduled for the beginning of July);
— Individual interviews in the headquarters of the Belgian Federal Police in Brussels:
— 13.9.2018 (planned),
— 18.9.2018 (planned),
— a webinar (forecast) on 20.7.2018 & 9.8.2018,
And an online question/answer forum where questions will receive a reply within 3-5 days.
Broadway will manage the WTO process in an open and transparent way and all WTO activities, such as dates, places, records, contextual information and main outcomes, will be published on the project website from the beginning of July 2018 — http://www.broadway-info.eu/[...].
In order for the WTO process to be transparent and open, no bilateral discussion disclosing confidential information between Broadway and operators will be allowed.

Section IV: Procedure
Section VI: Complementary information
All interested operators are invited to participate in the WTO, in accordance with point II.2.
All activities will be organised in English. To ensure equal treatment for all economic operators concerned, individual interviews will only be used to provide basic information on the challenge and process and to listen to operators in an open and transparent manner. If there is a lack of interest in taking part in the events of the WTO, Broadway reserves the right to cancel an individual interview in Brussels.
Taking part or not of WTO activities will have no positive or adverse effect on the opportunities for any operator to participate in subsequent tender activities.
These CFP are exempt from the WTO Government Procurement Agreement (GPA), the EU Public Procurement Directives and national laws implementing them. This is because this is a market for R & D services, the benefits of which do not accrue exclusively to the group of buyers for their use in the exercise of their own activities.
The publication of this pre-information notice in the Official Journal of the European Union cannot be considered as a declaration of waiver of this exemption. This publication is voluntary and the contract will not follow the procedures of the European Public Procurement Directives but the procedure described in the tender documentation.
This pre-information notice is published to announce an open market consultation for a future pre-commercial procurement procedure. The pre-information notice is not a commitment to award a contract.
