OD needs consultancy services within fiscal measurements and would like, therefore, to enter into a framework agreement with 1 tenderer. The framework agreement will be valid for 3 years, with an option for OD to extend the contract for 1 year. There can be both national and international assignments for OD. The assignments will, amongst other things, consist of measuring inspection activities, practical and theoretical studies/reviews, development of rules, courses and company visits.
The framework agreement has an estimated value of 8 000 000 NOK excluding VAT, the international assignments are expected to make up the majority of this. The estimated value is non-binding on OD and carries no rights for the tenderer.
See annex 1 — Requirement Specifications and the detailed description of the assignment for further information on the procurement's extent and content.
The contract is subject to financial resources being granted from the national budget for each year of the contract. The annual value otherwise depends on OD's and the Ministry of Petroleum and Energy's priorities.
