Question : With reference to the file template 23_Itemized Price and 24_Price Note, could you please clarify the following: 1) Could you please confirm if the total amount of the offer shall be equal to the sum of A2 + B2 + C2 + D2 + E2, as specified in table S2? 2) if so, could you please confirm the desirable candidate's effort for E2 - First Integration preparation? We noticed that in Itemized Price and Price note templates the % of desirable candidate's effort is only specified for A2 + B2 + C2 + D2, totalling 100%.

Rponse : 1) Yes this is correct. 2) The sentence on the Price Note and in the Itemized Prices document (Preamble, page 3) was not phrased correctly; this is what should have been included. "Maximum indicative percentages of efforts have been provided (4 out of 5 items) as guidance: 40% for A2, 10% for B2, 40% for C2 and 10% for D2".

Question : After the information of our finance experts VAT for our CMEMS services should be paid by Mercator Ocean in France according to the Reverse Charge Mechanism. See: The Reverse Charge Mechanism says that the services should be taxed at the place of the customer, i.e. at the place where the customer is established or resides. It should be applicable if Mercator Ocean has a VAT ID No. The invoices of BSH would then include only net-prizes excluding VAT (mentioning the application of the reverse charge mechanism). BSH would need for the invoices the VAT ID No. of Mercator Ocean. As Mercator Ocean would have to pay for the BSH service VAT in France (20%) would that reduce the amount of money available for the grouping where BSH participates?

Rponse : Dear Mr Dick, The Reverse Charge Mechanism will indeed apply and to this effect, please find hereafter the VAT number for Mercator Ocean: FR12 522911577 The overall amount of the call remains the same, it has been estimated excluding tax, at 4 050 000 .

Question : Dear Ladies and Gentlemen, BSH aims to participate in three temporary groupings of economic partners (for 70-CMEMS-MFC-BALTIC, 71-CMEMS-MFC-NWS and 82-CMEMS-TAC-INSITU). 1.) Presently it is not clear to us if the prize or total value of the contract includes VAT or not. In the Official Journal of the EU (TED Call) it says (e.g. for 70-CMEMS-MFC-BALTIC): I.1.5) Estimated total value Value excluding VAT: 4 050 000.00 EUR II.2.6) Estimated value Value excluding VAT: 4 050 000.00 EUR While in the TENDER REGULATIONS there is no statement on tax under 3.6 GCC-ICT Article 10 (PRICES) says: 10.1.3. Prices are deemed to include all tax or other charges which necessarily affect services, costs connected with packaging, storage, packing, insurance and transport to the place of delivery, costs resulting from application of article 17.1.2, as well as all other expenses required to carry out services, margins for risk and profit margins. Could you please tell me, if the price note of the individual grouping members should include taxes. 2.) If taxes have to be included in the price note, what kind of VAT has to be applied? Has it to be paid in Germany (by BSH) or in France (by Mercator Ocean)? Thank you in advance for your answer.

Rponse : Dear Mr Dick, Please see below the replies to your questions. Question 1: The value of the tender is 4 050 000 excluding VAT. Article 10 of the GCC-ICT refers to the taxes, extra costs and other charges that may be applicable in your country or applied by subcontractors, except for VAT. Question 2: Unfortunately, we are not familiar with the VAT laws of your country. Your proposal will be analysed without VAT. It is still possible for you to find out how the VAT rules will apply to your entity and the associated cost. Best regards, The CMEMS Tenders team
