The subject of the contract is to establish multiple framework contract for Maritime Aerial Surveillance services with Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems for long endurance, providing of information via Remote Mission Portal and sharing of compiled operational picture and/or raw data (the data transmission requirements will be defined in the Specific Orders). Frontex intends to award the framework contract to maximum three (3) contractors, rating them in ‘cascade’ (1st, 2nd, 3rd) order, provided that there is a sufficient number of economic operators that satisfy the selection criteria and a sufficient number of admissible tenders which meet the award criteria. Nevertheless, if there is only one tender satisfying all minimum requirements, Frontex may decide to cancel the procedure or sign a single FWC instead of a cascade.
The framework contract is to be renewed maximum 2 times, each time for a period of one (1) year and on the same conditions. In case one of the parties does not wish to extend the framework contract it shall inform the other party in writing, no later than 3 months before the end of the ongoing framework contract duration. Renewal does not change or postpone any existing obligations.
This procurement procedure is open on equal terms to any natural or legal person wishing to bid for the assignment. Exceptionally in this procedure, bids from economic operators from third countries will also be accepted. Participation in this call for tenders is open as well to international organisations.
