The procuRE Timeline
The Buyers Group
The submitted offers will be evaluated by The Buyers Group, consisting of 6 procurers: KSSENA (Slovenia regions), AMB (Wider Barcelona, Spain), NUREMBERG (Germany), ENERGAIA (Porto Region, Portugal), IMM (Istanbul, Turkey), EILAT (Israel).
The Buyers Group is in charge of over 21,000 buildings and has ambitious carbon neutrality goals (see strategies of Barcelona, Eilat, Istanbul, Nuremberg, Vila Nova de Gaia and Velenje for more detail).
procuRE invites other procurers to participate in OMC, answer the OMC questionnaire and to join the forum. procuRE will take input into account and share results as early as possible.
The Pre-Commercial Procurement process will be executed in four phases, ending in July 2024. In Phase 0, the procurers will prepare Tender documents. During this time Open market consultation took place. In Phase 1, the selected suppliers will work on concept design, solution architecture, and technical specifications. Then, in Phase 2, the selected suppliers will develop their prototype systems in two iterations. Finally, in Phase 3, selected contractors will test their pilot systems.
In parallel to these phases, separate work strands for co-design, evaluation & impact assessment, dissemination and project management will support the project objectives. For the three phases of the pre-commercial procurement, the table below shows the envisaged distribution of budget, the number of expected suppliers for each of them as well as the planned share of R&D product costs for Phase 3.
