In preparation for the SELECT for Cities PCP, all interested potential tenderers and market representatives are invited to take part in an open market consultation (regardless of their geographic location, the size or governance structure of their organisation).

Welcome to the SELECT for Cities Open Market Consultation (OMC) – Helsinki event

The SELECT for Cities OMC is a preparation on a Pre Commercial Procurement (PCP) Challenge that the SELECT for Cities consortium plan to launch at end of 2016. A PCP consists of a procurement of R&D services in which a number of companies develop in competition new solutions for mid- to long term public sector needs. This PCP will take place in several phases.

The SELECT for Cities PCP Challenge aims at developing a standardized, open, data-driven, service-oriented and user-centric platform enabling large-scale co-creation, testing and validation of IoE services for cities.

At the OMC event participants will receive specific information on the SELECT for Cities project and will be able to exchange information and network with other participants and the SELECT consortium.

The results of the OMC will help us formulate the PCP tender specifications that will be published later in the year.

Registration for Helsinki event open till 29 May. Space limited to 120 participants.

The open market consultation will start two months after the publishing of this announcement, early April, and will end in June 2016. This open market consultation will be a crucial stage in the final definition of the PCP challenge, the fine-tuning of the buyers’ requirements and the investigation of the market’s response to it. It will also provide you with an overview on the procurement objectives, the PCP process and the main clauses of the contract. You will also have the opportunity to ask questions. The market consultation will take place in several formats: – through an online questionnaire, where input can be added directly; – in face to face meetings, namely in Antwerp, Copenhagen and Helsinki.

These meetings will take place on the following dates: – 24 May 2016 in Antwerp, Belgium – 30 May 2016 in Helsinki, Finland – 6 June 2016 in Copenhagen, Denmark.

You can participate in the PCP call for tender even if you did not participate in the open market consultation.
