Art. 89f b of the Fusion for Energy Financial Regulation
Section I: Contracting authority/entity
Section II: Object
Engineering Services in the Area of Remote Handling
The tasks under the framework contract are mainly foreseen to be performed at the contractor's premises.
The list below gives an indication of the type of tasks that can be asked to be performed under this framework contract.
Each specific contract shall specify what tasks are required to be performed by the supplier.
A. Evaluation of remote handling design concepts and solutions including but not limited to the following:
— field equipment including sensor systems, hydraulic and electromechanical actuators, viewing systems, optical systems, metrology systems, cabling and connectors, control systems, etc.;
— feasibility, reliability, availability, remote maintenance, decontamination, inspectability, operability and safety assessment'
— verification of Protection Important Components (definition of PIC related verification activities are in (AD-02) of Annex A to the framework contract);
— evaluation of requirements management and verification activities;
B. Review or production of technical documentation for remote handling systems and components including but not limited to the following:
— CAD models, drawings and schematics, technical specifications, safety evaluations, manufacturing sheets, calculations, analysis reports (operational, risk, integrated logistics or safety and hazard analysis), finite element analyses, etc.;
— review meetings;
— on-site inspections at the ITER site or supplier premises;
C. Execution of support activities including but not limited to the following:
— studies related to design, manufacturing or assembly of remote handling equipment (as described in point a above) and their respective rescue systems, complemented by tests on procured mock-ups and/or components;
— studies, development, integration and validation of software and hardware components of the remote handling control system;
— assessment/qualification within the nuclear engineering field of radiation tolerance of components, materials and systems related to confinement of, and shielding from radioactive sources.

Section IV: Procedure
Section V: Award of contract/concession
Section VI: Complementary information
The ceiling values of the two additional framework contracts in cascade have also been increased, please refer to the award notice for the details.
The total value of commitments under all framework contracts in cascade shall not exceed the new ceiling value.

Section VII: Modifications to the contract/concession
— feasibility, reliability, availability, remote maintenance, decontamination, inspectability, operability and safety assessment;
No change to the scope or duration of the framework contract, only the ceiling value is increased.
Taking into account the value of all commitments done and the value of the estimated commitments to be done before the end of 2021. In view of the description of F4E needs in the short‐medium term, the remaining ceiling value will not be enough to place the fall back activities for some remote handling system developments.
