Notification of Award of the following: Water for Life set out the UK Government's vision for an innovative, resilient water industry that offered non-household customers a choice of supplier. In May 2014, the Water Act 2014 received Royal Assent and put in place the necessary legislative framework to achieve this vision. Open Water is the programme that is coordinating the development of the market rules, framework and systems that are required for an effective non-household retail market. The programme brings together market participants, Defra, Ofwat, Market Operator Services Ltd (MOSL) and other stakeholders to implement that vision, by opening the competitive market for non-household water and sewerage retail services in April 2017. Thames Water Utilities Ltd is committed to deliver capability in accordance with Open Water time frames. The architectural roadmap defines the need for a new Industry Data Exchange (‘IDEX’ or ‘New System’) product to enable managed interaction with the Market Operator. Failure to deliver on these commitments may result in financial penalty and reputational impact on the Purchaser. The current system architecture does not meet the Purchasers Market Operator (MO) interaction objectives. Investment in an IDEX is therefore considered a mandatory enabler to deliver a compliant and efficient solution. Bidders are requested to consider their response for 2 possible scope options — wholesale only, and retail and wholesale. In addition to the product itself, bidders should factor effort to configure the product in the target environment and provide support to a system integrator when integrating the product with other new and existing systems. The Programme expects to deliver capability increase in a series of phases. At a high-level, the Programme envisions at least 3 phases: 1. April 2016 — Completed installation, verification and commissioning of a New System to demonstrate ‘Northbound’ or external technical interaction with the MO. 2. Oct 2016 — Completed production installation, verification and commissioning of a New System demonstrating full operational capability of all defined Market Architecture Plan (MAP) processes, functional, non-functional and business requirements. From Oct 2016 to April 2017 the New System will operate as live, but operate in parallel or shadow operations. 3. April 2017 — full go live and market opening.

72000000

ECMWF, as the Entrusted Entity for the Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S), will issue an ITT for the software development of the C3S infrastructure. One of the aims of the C3S is to provide a single entry point for users to discover and work with climate related data and products which are provided by a wide variety of suppliers. The C3S infrastructure will therefore consist of: — a distributed data store that will be built upon existing infrastructures available at each of the suppliers. The content of the data store will vary in size (from megabytes to petabytes), type (flat files to relational databases) and formats. Interfaces between components of the data store will be based on agreed international standards. Users will be provided with a virtualised, consistent view of the content of the data store; — a toolbox that will contain software components that can be used to perform computations on the content of the data store, in a distributed fashion, under strictly controlled quality of service constraints; — a centralised catalogue that will describe the holdings of the distributed data store, as well as the tools available in the toolbox; — a brokering software that will forward data and services requests to the relevant suppliers; — a web portal that will allow users to discover and interact with the content of the climate data store. This will enable users to browse and search the catalogue, submit data requests and perform computations on these data. The portal will also act as a content management system, in order to provide documentation, training material, support pages, etc. The portal will have to implement the discovery, view and download services as mandated by the INSPIRE directive, using the relevant standards of the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC). The selected contractor will work closely with ECMWF and development will follow an agile methodology or equivalent. Technological choices will preferably be based on existing open source software. Ownership of all rights in the resulting software will be assigned, through ECMWF to EC and ECMWF will release the resulting software, on EC's behalf, under an open source licence, for unrestricted use and development. The architecture of the system will have to be open and extendable, and scale both in terms of the number of concurrent users and volume of available data. The C3S infrastructure will provide an operational service, and will have to be closely monitored. Usage statistics will have to be collected in order to measure key performance indicators and carry out capacity planning. The solution will include elements utilising a mixture of ECMWF's, the publishers' and cloud-based computing infrastructure. The full contract duration is 39 months.

Copernicus C3S_25 Software Development for the Climate Data Store (CDS) Toolbox

European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) | Published September 29, 2016
Winner
B-Open Solutions Srl
cpvs
72000000

This contract is for development of software for the Climate Data Store (CDS) Toolbox. The CDS is composed of a set of distributed data repositories containing all types of climate data and products ranging from very large datasets such as observation, reanalysis, climate projection, multi-model seasonal forecast products, to smaller and more elaborated value added products such as climate indicator maps, time series, tables, etc.

1 of the aims of the C3S is to provide an authoritative set of software (the CDS Toolbox) that will allow the users to develop applications that will make use of the content of the CDS. The Toolbox will be composed of:

— Tools that perform basic operations on data, such as computation of statistics, sub-setting, averaging, value at points, etc.;

— Workflows that combine tools by chaining them so that the output of some feeds as input to others;

— Applications that make use of workflows and selected data and products of the CDS to build interactive webpages.

These applications will be made available to users of the CDS via the C3S web portal, allowing them to perform data manipulation on the data and products of the CDS, and visualise their results. Users will also be able to share with other users of the CDS useful and quality controlled applications they have developed.

The data available in the CDS will vary greatly in volume (kilobytes to petabytes), in format (GRIB, NetCDF) and in nature (observations, fields, time series).

The contractor will:

— Establish the minimum set of tools required (differences or re-gridding, as well as statistical computations such as means or standard deviations);

— Review the existing software that could be used to implement this set of tools;

— Design a common data model that can be used to combine data and products of different types;

— Establish a method by which workflows using data and products that are held in various distributed data repositories can be orchestrated, allowing computation to be performed close to the data and data transfers to be minimised;

— Implement a series of reference applications that will demonstrate all functions offered by the Toolbox and will be used as examples.

The contractor will work closely with ECMWF and developments will follow an agile methodology. Technological choices will be based on existing open source software. Ownership of all rights in the resulting software will be assigned, through ECMWF, to the European Commission and ECMWF will release the resulting software, on behalf of the European Commission, under an open source licence. The architecture of the system will be open and extendible, and scale both in terms of the number of concurrent users and volume of available data.

Lot 1 — Suppliers will implement new business applications and associated processes undertake major changes to current and legacy applications and deliver associated infrastructure solutions over the next 2 to 5 years. The total spend going through the framework has been estimated at over 200 000 000 GBP over 5 years with projects ranging in value from 500 000 GBP to 75 000 000 GBP. The work will include all facets of IS project delivery, system integration and associated services for new or legacy systems including but not limited to: — Service strategy, IT strategy, technical advice and planning, — Enterprise architecture planning, — Process improvement and design, — Feasibility analysis and blueprinting, — Requirements analysis, — Solution design, — Service design, — Application development, — Testing strategy and test planning, — Data quality improvement and migration for service transition, — Data management and information management, — Information security management, — IT asset management, — Programme and project management, — Quality control, quality assurance and quality management, — Design assurance, — System integration, — Service validation and testing, — Business continuity management and IT disaster recovery management, — Transition into ‘Business-as-usual’ operations (and potentially application support and service hosting). Suppliers securing framework agreements would become part of the Thames Water IS Development Pool. This does not give the supplier any guarantee of work, but will enable the supplier to bid for individual projects of work over the forthcoming 2 to 5 years. The majority of individual projects will be sourced under this framework via competitive tendering. Thames Water will evaluate responses and issue an ITN to vendors successful in qualifying. Thames Water requires a financial annual turnover of 125 000 000 GBP for qualification (pass/fail question). Thames Water is also issuing a separate Notice that will allow prospective bidders to be elected on to a register from which additional IS development work may be sourced. Such works are expected to be smaller or more niche pieces of IS development work. The QSN Notice for this register will be published within 10 days of this OJEU Notice. Lot 2 — TW retail non-household requires integration of a new CRM and billing system(s) to enable the billing and relationship management for business customers receiving water and waste water services. TW are seeking the integration of system(s) to deliver the following core capabilities for our retail business: — Prospect to sale, contract capture and account management, — Pricing and development of products and services, — Bill issue, ready to cash, collections (accounts receivable) and payment management — Debt and credit management incorporated into a billing system, — Core customer interactions — inbound/outbound contact (queries, complaints, issue resolution) and customer data management, — e-Functionalities (e.g. eOrders, eBilling, webapps capabilities, etc.), — Managing initiation of non-primary offerings: trade effluent and other value add products and services, — Reporting, analytics and consumption/benchmarking analysis, — Interfacing with internal corporate systems, — Interfacing and reconciling with market operator, — Purchasing of wholesale services and reconciliation of wholesale and retail charges, — Interfacing with external market registration systems and other 3rd parties. The level of integration to the existing estate will be decided later in the procurement process. Context: From 1.4.2017, non-household customers in England will have the ability to choose their water supplier and sewerage services provider. TW non-household retail and wholesale business functions will therefore be participants in the new competitive non-household water market each with their own set of market obligations and commercial requirements. In order to be compliant with this market and to provide effective services for its customers, TW are seeking to implement new system solutions including Customer Relationship Management and Billing (CRB) capabilities for their non-household retail business functions and for their wholesale water and waste business functions. It is anticipated that the system(s) will be required to calculate and bill charges for at least 250 000 customers (across at least 340 000 sites) and their associated measurement/usage data for a number of products and services. The system needs to be flexible to meet the changing requirements of the market and scalable to support increases in customer volumes, in-line with business retail market in the UK. Please note that Lot 2 is to select a CRM and billing system integrator and not the tool, which is being selected under a separate OJEU process (Ref: 2014/S 099-173726) which is now closed.

Thames Water currently envisages that the total value (including all Thames Water costs) of the Core Scope items A to J above will be approximately 400 000 000 GBP — 500 000 000 GBP over the remainder of AMP6 following contract award (i.e. end of March 2016 to end of March 2020) and that this scope value is an approximate forecast for future AMP periods. Thames Water also currently envisages that the total value (including all Thames Water costs) of the Future Potential Scope items K to S above will be approximately 200 000 000 GBP — 300 000 000 GBP per AMP period. However, no decision has yet been made regarding if and when this scope will be awarded in total or in part. Bidders will be expected to be able to deliver all the Core Scope items as a minimum. The size and complexity of the core IT/OT programme, and the potential to bring in the Potential Future Scope, means that it is currently envisaged that bidding entities will be multi-disciplinary in nature and will be either an incorporated or unincorporated bidding consortium. Thames Water does not envisage that product vendors will be part of the original constitution of each bidding consortium. However, product vendors may be required in the future, either as a strategic supplier or as part of the consortium within the alliance. Therefore, this provision may be incorporated within the consortium by agreement during or after the procurement and pre-service delivery phases. Following the procurement, Thames Water envisages a pre-service delivery phase between January 2016 and April 2016, followed by full service delivery (including a transition phase). Thames Water's current preference is to award the contract to a single successful bidding consortium, but subject to the capability and ability of bidding entities reserves the right to move to a multi-supplier/consortium solution at any point in the procurement process and thereafter award the contract(s) to more than one supplier consortium(s). Where Thames Water exercises this right, the process for doing so and evaluation methodology shall be set out in the relevant procurement documents. A significant amount of collaboration, knowledge sharing, and innovation will take place during the lifetime of the contract(s) and this requirement, along with the commercial model being developed, will require a bidding consortium(s) with significant collective capacity and capability. It is currently envisaged that Thames Water and the successful bidding consortium(s) will work together under the contract(s) within a jointly-incentivised commercial arrangement with the objective of outperforming the Thames Water business plan budget which is aligned to the scope being delivered. The operating model selected for delivering these services is a client-embedded alliance, where Thames Water and the successful bidding consortium work together in a joint-team to meet the stated aims of the contract. This approach will require selection and evaluation through the procurement on a collective bidding consortium basis. Bidding consortiums may receive detailed feedback at an early stage in the procurement process upon their strengths and weaknesses as a consortium. A short window of opportunity may be given for shortlisted bidding consortiums to vary their members. Should a bidding consortium choose to change its members in this way, Thames Water shall reapply the selection criteria used at the outset and it will be a condition of continuing in the process that the bidding consortium (as varied) receives the same score or higher than that originally awarded for the Selection stage. Thames Water and the successful bidding consortium will agree the detailed transition and phasing of the Core Scope during the procurement or pre-service delivery phase. It is envisaged that the items of scope pertaining to IT may be made operational before any OT activities are commenced. Thames Water does not envisage having an immediate requirement for applicants to deliver the Potential Future Scope from Day 1 of the contract. However, it is currently anticipated that Thames Water may, at some point during the initial term of the contract (including the pre-service delivery phase) or later, require the successful bidding consortium to deliver both the Core Scope and part or all of the Potential Future Scope. Therefore, each bidding consortium's ability to manage the Potential Future Scope will be evaluated within the selection and evaluation stages of the procurement. It may be appropriate for the successful bidding consortium to introduce other entities to deliver this Core Scope and/or Future Potential Scope during the life of the contract(s) and/or for original entities to exit the successful bidding consortium. A clear, precise and unequivocal review clause shall be included within the contract(s) to manage this process.
