The GPSoC Framework is formed of three components, or Lots, and each has a separate framework agreement. The current procurement began on 24 May 2013 with publication of a notice in the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU Notice) (PDF, 123.0kB), accompanied by a Memorandum of Information (MOI) (PDF, 879.0kB).
Following an extended period of engagement, 90 organisations submitted a pre-qualification questionnaire (PQQ) to express an interest in the procurement. We evaluated these responses and shortlisted bidders for each Lot.
The current procurement is now closed to new applications.
Once the three frameworks below have been established, a decision will be made regarding additional procurements.
