Voluntary ex ante transparency notice
Section I: Contracting authority/entity
Section II: Object
Services within supplier independent research, analysis, and consultancy
The contract will ensure that Stovner District has access to supplier independent research, analysis, and consultancy services within the ICT field. Stovner District intends to enter into a framework agreement with Gartner Norge AS. The contract period will be 1 year, with options for extensions (+1+1+1).
Stovner District needs expertise within research, analysis, and consultancy. Tenderers must cover all aspects of the IT industry. This includes, amongst other things, monitoring suppliers in various technology markets, monitoring technology with trends for use, quantitative and qualitative market analyses and processes. The tenderer's analyses must be based on internationally recognised analysis models and research processes.
Stovner District would like, possibly in cooperation with the tenderer, to carry out
- Capability analysis of the entire organisation
- Maturity analyses within several areas
It must be followed to follow-up any analyses with different activities:
- Establish a baseline for how Stovner District looks as regards equivalent entities
- Uncover shortcomings in the entity
- Make plans for covering up competence or capability gaps
- Propose a new/changed organisation with role descriptions
- Propose different improvement initiatives
In order to ensure good and efficient execution of the above, and for continued work on the development of the organisation and competence in the remainder of the 3 year period, Stovner District needs a tenderer who can be an active sparring partner and who can contribute with access to analyses, methods, templates and tools within several fields, such as;
- Digitalisation strategy
- Sourcing strategy and outsourcing (service procurement)
- Business architecture
- IT Security and risk management
- Business Intelligence
- Portfolio management
- Technology and systems
- Supplier market
- Branch development
- IT Governance, organisation and management models (IT Governance)
- IT cost optimisation, efficiency improvement and profit realisation
It is a prerequisite that this is a total procurement in order to ensure consistent use of analyses, methodology and best practice, and that the tenderer can advise Stovner District in strategic choices when using the same material.
Option to extend after 1 year for a further 1+1+1 year.
Section IV: Procedure
The contract will ensure Stovner District access to supplier independent research, analysis, and consultancy services within the ICT field. Stovner District intends to enter into a framework agreement with Gartner Norge AS. Based on our surveys and knowledge of the market, there is only one supplier that can meet our need for the services in question. Other suppliers have not been identified that provide this combination of access to independent research, analysis material, and consultancy services than Gartner Norge AS offers. Therefore the exception in the public procurement regulations, section 13-4 letter b) no. 2 can be applied as 'competition is impossible due to technical reasons'.
