Pre-Commercial Procurement of Innovative Triage Management Systems Strengthening Resilience and Interoperability of Emergency Medical Services
iProcureSecurity PCP Call for Tenders invites all interested parties to present their offers for R&D services in the form of a solution that will provide Triage Management Systems which will strengthen the resilience and interoperability of European Emergency Medical Services (EMS).
The procurement addresses the procurers' unmet needs relating to different EMS-related aspect, such as: planning and decision making, resource allocation, improved triage practices, data transmission and interoperability, usability of EMS solutions, evaluation and sustainability, data security and protection in standard crisis management systems.
iProcureSecurity PCP is a research & development (R&D) services procurement which is conducted through a Pre-Commercial-Procurement (PCP).
This PCP procurement is a joint procurement by different procurers across Europe that are all facing the same common challenge and are thus looking for similar solutions (so-called ‘buyers group’).
The procurement will take the form of a pre-commercial procurement (PCP) under which R&D service contracts will be awarded to R&D providers in parallel in a phased approach. This will make it possible to compare competing alternative solutions. Each selected operator will be awarded a framework agreement that covers three R&D phases. The three phases are: solution design, prototype development, original development and validation and testing of a limited volume of first products or services. After each phase, intermediate evaluations will be carried out to select the best of the competing solutions. The contractors with the best value- for-money solutions will be offered a specific contract for the next phase.
The selected operators will retain ownership of the intellectual property rights (IPRs) that they generate during the PCP and will be able to use them to exploit the full market potential (estimated at 40 million people in need of pre-hospital care in the five countries in the project) of the developed solutions.
This procurement receives funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme, under grant agreement No 101022061 – iProcureSecurity PCP (https://pcp.iprocuresecurity.eu/). The EU has given a grant for this procurement, but is not participating as a contracting authority in the procurement.
This PCP is part of iProcureSecurity PCP project that received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No.101022061
