WIPO needs support in SW development and help with the ERP

ICT Services

The World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), Geneva

The RFP is divided in two lots:

Lot 1: Software development, architecture, operations and related services

Lot 2: Enterprise Resource Planning services

WIPO has a workforce of 1’300 staff members working mostly at its headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland.

The selected contractors will be offered a Long-Term Agreement (LTA) for an initial period of 3 years, with a potential extension of up to a maximum of 4 additional years subject to satisfactory performance as further described in the Draft Contract.

Under the scope of services for Lot 1, the Organization has currently about 250 (25 onsite, 225 remote) external Full-Time Equivalent (FTE) working on about 100 business internally and/or externally facing applications. A description of the requested profiles (roles), major methodologies and frameworks, as well as major technologies is included in this document and its annexures.

WIPO requires services from vendors for:

• Technical resource augmentation: Projects frequently require resource augmentation during the design and development cycle. WIPO will be contacting companies qualified by this RFP process to request for proposals through minicompetitions.

The augmented resource will be contracted to join a multifunctional project team and fulfil a specific role in that project. In some cases, resources will be hired for less 100%.

• Delivery of turnkey solution: In certain cases, WIPO will want to outsource the delivery of a turnkey solution, rather than procuring individual resources. In these cases, we will invite vendors to provide a turnkey proposal, with quotation and presentation of such proposal.

Selected companies will provide expertise in the following areas:

• Application Development Services

• Application monitoring and support Services

• Data and Digital Assets Services

• Quality Assurance Services

• IT Service Management Services

• Entreprise Architecture Services

• Project and Program Services

• Infrastructure Services

Work assignments can be carried out on-site at WIPO’s premises in Geneva and/or offsite (nearshore or offshore as defined below).

For some specific needs, WIPO may require the external consultants to work beyond regular Geneva Headquarters’ office hours.

To deliver support services, consultants may have to work in shifts to provide continuous monitoring operation, to remain on call or to intervene remotely or on-site in case of emergency in order to fix problems.

Consultants will be working using a limited number of workplace configurations defined by WIPO, where workplace configuration encompasses user account, fully configured WIPO endpoint and remote connection software. In particular, for all the projects where connection to the WIPO internal systems is needed, account, WIPO endpoint and remote connection client will be provided by WIPO: the consultant will install the remote connection client on their own physical endpoint to securely access a WIPO virtual endpoint. The supplier must provide the physical endpoint and ensure the remote connection is fully operational from the consultant’s working location.

Integrované komunikační kampaně pro Úřad pro bezpečnost potravin EU

Tendr: Podpora komunikačních činností EFSA

Zadavatel: Evropský úřad pro bezpečnost potravin (EFSA), Parma

Předpokládaná celková hodnota bez DPH: €20.550.000

Zakázka má dvě samostatné / na sobě nezávislé části:

Lot1: vypracování integrovaných komunikačních kampaní a vývoj služeb souvisejících s multimediální a online komunikací jako samostatných produktů

Popis: Tato položka bude mít dvojí funkci, která bude pokrývat tyto dvě služby:

— část 1 – integrované komunikační kampaně: plánování, rozvoj, realizace, šíření informací a hodnocení integrovaných komunikačních kampaní. Pro účely této výzvy k podání nabídek je komunikační kampaň definována jako plánovaná posloupnost vzájemně souvisejících komunikačních činností, které sdílejí společný příběh a zaměřují se na stejné publikum a mají konkrétní časový rozvrh a vyhrazený rozpočet;

— část 2 – samostatné multimediální a online produkty (např. video, animace atd.) na konkrétní témata v rámci kompetence EFSA, nezávisle na kampaních, v rámci obchodní/obvyklé práce EFSA.

Budget €20.000.000

Lot2: zajištění stručných jazykových souhrnů (PLS) vědeckých výstupů EFSA, které jsou přístupné pro informovanou netechnickou veřejnost.

Popis: EFSA každoročně zveřejňuje přibližně 450 vědeckých hodnocení v Úředním věstníku EFSA. V posledních letech zveřejnil EFSA PLS řady svých klíčových hodnocení a nyní hodlá rozšířit program tak, aby pokrýval širší škálu jeho vědeckých výstupů. Vzhledem ke své ústřední úloze při ochraně veřejného zdraví je úřad EFSA povinen včas sdělit své zjištění: to znamená, že čas, který je k dispozici pro vytvoření PLS, je omezený. Vědecké výsledky EFSA jsou navíc vysoce technické a znění lze uplatnit tak, aby odráželo složitost příslušného hodnocení rizik. Vzhledem k těmto faktorům hledá EFSA podporu odborné komunikační agentury, která bude pracovat s oddělením pro komunikaci a partnerství EFSA (ENGEGE) a jeho vědeckými pracovníky za účelem vytvoření udržitelného programu PLS.

Deployment support of digital replicas of the Earth system to monitor and simulate natural and human activities

Tendr: Visualisation & Immersive Technologies

Zadavatel: European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF), Bonn

Kontrakt na 20 měsíců / budget €1.500.000

Details: Destination Earth (DestinE) will deploy several high resolution thematic digital replicas (digital twins, DT) of the Earth system to monitor and simulate natural and human activities as well as their interactions, to develop and test scenarios that would enable more sustainable developments and support European policy making. DestinE is intended to unlock the potential of observations and both physics-based and data-driven models for achieving a break-through in the realism of the simulation of Earth-system components.

This Invitation to Tender covers the provision of a technical implementation that demonstrates how DT results can be visualised and contextualised, including overlaying simulation and observational data and the provision of a very specific workflow: a visualisation and rendering service. Under this procurement, the digital twin concept shall be enhanced with immersive technology that blurs the line between the physical world and the digital or simulated world and ideally provides a capability to fully immerse the users in the virtual world.

Tenderers should submit proposals that demonstrate their ability to deliver high-quality visualisation & interactive (immersive) technology capabilities with a strong foundation in digital technology development. The proposals will be evaluated on the basis of criteria related to technology readiness.

ECMWF intends to award a single contract for a maximum duration of 20 months, expected to commence by September 2022, and with an end date not later than 30 April 2024.
