DE_370 Destination Earth Use Cases
ECMWF, as the Entrusted Entity for the Destination Earth Programme (DestinE), invites tenders for the provision of DestinE Use Cases. ECMWF intends to award one or more contracts for a maximum duration of 19 months, expected to commence by October 2022, and with an end date not later than 30 April 2024.
On contractor's premises.
This Invitation to Tender (ITT) aims at establishing a set of individual contracts to develop DestinE Digital Twin (DT) use cases that conceptualize and demonstrate concrete application benefits from future data and capability provisions of DestinE DTs. The objective of each of the use-case contracts resulting from this ITT is to develop and implement concrete examples for applications eventually benefitting from the full DestinE capabilities. Each use case must respond to a well-defined, specific problem and user objective within the relevant user mandate, set out the current workflows including their limitations and the information gaps/shortcomings to be addressed, define the approach and the required DestinE products and capabilities, implement a demonstration based on existing and (prospective) DestinE capabilities, and assess output quality, uncertainties, fitness-for-purpose and user benefit.
ECMWF targets a selection of use cases in different impact sectors including, but not limited to:
• water management,
• agriculture and forestry,
• renewable energy management,
• air quality management,
• maritime or air transport,
• disaster risk mitigation.
ECMWF expects that individual tenders, with a total price between € 200,000 and € 600,000 will be adequate to achieve the objectives of individual thematic use cases, depending on the scope of the individual use cases.
Criteria for selection will be the relevance of the problem addressed for public policy users in Europe and the value added by the unique DestinE capabilities, the effective involvement of policy-mandated users, the credibility and feasibility of the use case, and the realistic planning of the continued exploitation of the results. In striving for thematic diversity ECMWF will select a set of use cases covering several of the application domains listed above to ensure representation of diverse applications in terms of domains and user groups addressed. Award of contracts will be based on a value for money assessment, done in conjunction with an assessment of the representation of diverse applications in terms of domains and user groups addressed, the scope and budget of the individual use case, as well as the interest of ECMWF and of the Destination Earth Programme.

1. The estimated value indicated in sections II.1.5 and II.2.6 represents the cumulative budget available for all contracts to be awarded as a result of this ITT. As per section II.2.4, ECMWF expects individual tenders priced between € 200,000 and € 600,000.
2. The time zone used to express the time in sections IV.2.2 and IV.2.7 is the Central European Summer Time zone.

Section IV: Procedure
ECMWF's eProcurement Portal
Section VI: Complementary information
Procedure to be applied:
The procurement for the contract will be conducted in accordance with ECMWF's procedures as set out in Invitation to Tender documents, which will be 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.
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.
Eligibility: Refer to Section 3.2 of Volume I of the ITT documents.
