ECMWF/ITT/2019/BOND19 Procurement of Servers and Hyperconverged Systems
The purpose of this Invitation to Tender (ITT) is for ECMWF to obtain proposals from tenderers for the procurement of Servers and Hyperconverged Systems.
This ITT covers the procurement of 2 lots:
— Lot 1: Servers and Software,
— Lot 2: Hyperconverged Systems.
Tenderers may elect to tender for Lot 1, Lot 2 or for both lots. Where a tender covers both lots, the tenderer must submit separate prices for each lot, but may also indicate a discounted price or percentage reduction for each lot which will apply if ECMWF awards the tenderer a contract for both lots. For the avoidance of doubt, ECMWF shall be permitted to award a contract for one or for both Lots on the basis of the tenders submitted.
This ITT covers an initial purchase of servers and hyperconverged systems and thereafter allows ECMWF to make additional purchases for a period of three (3) years from the date of contract signature. This period may be extended annually by ECMWF for up to a further two (2) years.
