Deadline 12/1

Some details: In 2012 ECHA started a transition towards outsourced hosting services, which was progressively implemented over three years. In particular, ECHA currently sources infrastructure services provided by one outsourcer (Incumbent), in conjunction with a second contractor (Networks Incumbent) managing the networks, based on two external datacentres and external service delivery centres.
In 2015 ECHA adopted an ICT asset-free strategy and transitioned its entire computing capacity to Infrastructure-as-a-service (completed in 2016). Such transition does not currently cover the network equipment.
Services under the existing agreements are secured for a time period that ECHA considers sufficient to establish this new Framework Contract (FWC) through competition and in order to complete the transition of services.
In parallel ECHA is performing a re-design of its networks in order to simplify and streamline the network managed services, on the one hand, and to facilitate the completion of the transition to full Infrastructure-as-a-service to cover also network-as-a-service, on the other. The aim is that this FWC will start when such transformation has already been completed or be very close to completion.
While the quality of the services to be provided by the Contractor are an important part of the FWC, clear focus will be put on awarding the Contract to a provider that can dramatically reduce the total cost of ownership of infrastructure services, including ECHA’s internal resources (e.g. contract management, service management, issue follow-up, etc.). That being said, continuity of ECHA’s existing infrastructure service portfolio is a top priority.

ECHA’s goals: Therefore, this FWC is of strategic importance to ECHA. There are four key objectives that ECHA puts on it:
1. Providing secure access to high-quality, secure and state-of-the-art services for consumption by ECHA and its third parties.
2. Ensuring a cost effective and low-risk transition from ECHA’s current infrastructure
208 services in to the services available on this FWC.
3. Lowering the total cost of ownership of infrastructure services, including efforts made by ECHA staff for e.g. Contract and Service Management.
4. Streamlining of the service delivery via lean service management and effective governance, automation and standardisation of service delivery and integration of services in a multiparty ecosystem.
ECHA expects that the Contractor is in a position to achieve all these objectives.

Amsterdam gears up to settle 900 EMA staff plus partners and children

(DutchNews.nl) The news that Amsterdam will host the European Medicines Agency when it leaves London after Brexit has been widely welcomed for its impact on both the Netherlands’ reputation as a location to do business and the likely knock-on effect on employment. Nevertheless, there are considerable issues to solve within the 16 months set aside for the move, officials warn. The decision ‘marks the official start of a challenging joint relocation project that will have to be delivered within extremely tight deadlines… and completed by March 30, 2019,’ the London-based body said after the result of the European ministers’ vote was announced.

In particular, the EMA has a workforce of some 890, most of whom will move to the Dutch capital and will need suitable housing. EMA workers also have 600 plus children under the age of 18, many of whom will need to be found places at international schools and daycare centres. The Amsterdam bid included a commitment to implement a relocation plan with a dedicated team of experts to help staff make the move. The city has already guaranteed that the children of EMA staff will have access to international education and that ‘housing in the different segments is readily available.’ It is unclear, as yet, how the city, already grappling with a shortage of affordable homes, will cope with the new influx. Mike Russell, director of housing group Principle Vastgoed told that supply in the city is already short and the budgets available to the EMA staffers will drive everything, which ever segment they are looking in. ‘If they have €1,800 plus to spend, that is going to put upward pricing pressure on the market,’ he said. ‘

Amsterdam pitched itself as a great place to live and everyone who makes the move here is coming for the Amsterdam experience, not the Almere experience.’ Purpose built office The EMA will first be housed in temporary offices before moving to a purpose-built building in Amsterdam’s Zuidas district next to the EY offices.

The building will be some 80 metres high with 19 floors and will cost between €250m and €300m to build. The tab for the new building, named Vivaldi, is being picked up by the Dutch government which will rent it to the EMA for the market rate. The government is also providing an €18m sweetener to help pay for the move.

Zuidas director David van Traa says the arrival of the EMA will further boost the district’s profile as a top location to do business. In addition, he said, ‘the many international workers and visitors will undoubtably contribute to making Zuidas a more lively place as it moves from being a business district to a unique new district of Amsterdam where you can live and work.’

EMA se přesune do Milana, Amsterdamu nebo Kodaně. Bratislava neuspěla

Tak European Medicines Agency se zhruba 600 zaměstnanci se z Británie na Slovensko určitě nepostěhuje. Do finále se dostali Milano, Amsterdam a Kodaň.

A musel by se stát zázrak, aby Bratislava dostala European Banking Authority.

Takže to vypadá, že Slovensko zůstane jednou z mála zemí bez EU agentury.
