Description of the procurement:

The objective of this call for tenders is to award a service framework contract to a single economic operator for the production and supply of geospatial products for the Copernicus Service in Support to EU External Action (‘SEA’), component of the Copernicus Security Service (the ‘Copernicus SEA Service’).

The SatCen, as the manager and coordinator of the Copernicus SEA Service, seeks to acquire services to provide rapid and on-demand geospatial products based on the analysis of satellite imagery and collateral data for the detection and monitoring of events or activities that may have implications for the EU and global security. Such products include, inter alia, layers, maps and databases under different formats.

The services sought by the SatCen comprise the following tasks:

  • establishing and maintaining a service, available twelve hours a day (from 8:00 to 20:00 CET), seven days a week, for receiving SatCen’s orders for geospatial products;
  • activating the production during working hours to generate the products ordered;
  • delivering the products to the SatCen within the deadlines specified in the orders, via File Transfer Protocol and/or Service Delivery Platform, along with technical and progress reports.

The Copernicus SEA Service is an on-demand service by nature. The products will be ordered and the production work will be activated at the SatCen’s request, based on varying users’ needs.

 

Estimated total value:

The estimated total value of the contract is 9,000,000.00 EUR, excluding VAT.

 

Duration of the contract:

Until 31/12/2022.

The framework contract is renewed automatically up to two times for periods of 12 months each, unless one of the parties receives formal notification to the contrary at least three months before the end of the ongoing duration. Renewal does not change or postpone any existing obligations.
