Question : Hi all,quick question! We are trying to submit the documents, but we are facing problems with the digital signature. Do we need a french signature certificate? could please indicate where we can buy it? thanks

Le : 17 avril 2018 09:35 (heure de Paris)
Rponse : The message from the Platform is not clear but you can submit without a signature (close the window). There is also another small specificity which is that you need to create another loggin and password to submitt the offer. Question rapide! nous essayons de soumettre les documents mais nous rencontrons des problmes avec la signature lectronique. Avons-nous besoin d'un certificat franais? Pourvez-vous nous indiquer o le trouver? Le message de la plate-forme n'est pas clair mais vous pouvez soumettre sans signature (fermer la fentre). Il y a aussi une autre particularit qui est que vous devez crer d'autres identifiants et mots de passe pour soumettre.

Question : Good afternnon, I am going to apply for the call 67-UU-DO-CMEMS-DEM4, on the MarchesOnline.com portal. I'm trying to subscribe as a non-french organization (I work in an italian public research institute): when I have to fill in the "ZONE D'INTERVENTION" field, I find French regions only (see attached screenshot), but the activities of my institute covers the whole world, and for the present call the mediterranean region (LOT 8) shall be included (the call is in fact open to all Copernicus users). How can I proceed with my registration? At the moment I have chosen "France entier" but I am not so sure it is the correct choice... Many thanks for your answer and best regards.

Now I need to upload them in the "Repondre a la consultation-Constitution des enveloppes" window. My questions are: 1. have I to upload all documents one by one, or it's better to upload one zipped folder? 2. shall each filename include the "March 67-UU-DO-CMEMS-DEM4-LOT 8" prefix? 3. my hand-signed documents have to be electronically re-signed by the "Signer" button on the form?

Question : Contractor is requested to develop and promote operational coastal CMEMS downstream services. These services should be maintained by contractor and made available on a dedicated webpage that is hosted by the Contractor. The IP-rights on the Service demonstration will transfer to Mercator and Mercator undertakes to reproduce and represent Service demonstration. For the maintenance of the services, contractor would retain ownership to the services, or to receive a license to use, reproduce, represent, translate, analyse, adapt and modify these demonstration services. Would this be possible? Would it be possible to discuss the applicability of license terms and conditions for the use of the results of the services other than the conditions in A.38.1.1 GCC?

Le : 29 janvier 2018 10:25 (heure de Paris)

In question 1, you refer to a website but this is not what is requested in the proposal. The draft of the demonstration webpage can already include the different sections as shown in the template.

Question : Article 8, subsection 3: please explain the meaning of the following; "for the duration of the applicable IPR" What timeframe are the intention behind the wording? Article 8, subsection 4 is a contradiction of the purpose of subsection 2 and 3. Please confirm that subsection 4 will be deleted. We generally agree that MERCATOR OCEAN and EU should be granted a non-exclusive, license to use the results (Foreground information) for the purpose of the project as set out in subsection 3, but subsection 4 makes subsection 2 and 3 pointless, thus subsection 4 should be deleted.

Le : 29 janvier 2018 10:25 (heure de Paris)

Question : Bonjour, Concerning the previous question posted on the 9 janvier 2018 - 13h19 (heure de Paris), regarding the starting date of the project and quoting "the contracts should start in May". I realize though that from May 2018 until March 2021 there are more than 30 months (considering this final date and counting backwards 30 months, the starting date should be September 2018). Could you double-check it, please? Merci!

Rponse : The contracts will be concluded for a period of 18 months. If they start in May 2018, the contracts will end in November 2019. However, as indicated in the Statement of Work, the candidates shall maintain the services after the end of the contract, until the end of March 2021.

Question : Can a candidate take part, as a member of a grouping, in several proposals for different lots? In case a lot is attributed to one of the groupings, does this automatically eliminate the offers of the groupings the candidate is part of?

Le : 4 janvier 2018 19:09 (heure de Paris)

Le : 21 dcembre 2017 16:06 (heure de Paris)
Question : Question 1. In the Tender's Regulation document, chapter/paragraph 3.3. Allotment, page 7, it is mentioned that "The selected tenderer for one lot could not be selected for another lot". Having this in mind we kindly ask for the below 3 clarifications: A. Is it possible for an organization to be subcontractor in more than one lots? If this is the case, if more than one lot is selected to be awarded, will it be acceptable for this organization to contribute to more than one lot, under the condition that it has claimed (at the proposal stage) that it has the full capacity to do so? B. Is it possible for an organization to be co-contractor/partner of a grouping in more than one lots (different grouping for each lot)? If this is the case, if more than one lot is selected to be awarded, will it be acceptable for this organization to contribute to more than one lot, under the condition that it has claimed (at the proposal stage) that it has the full capacity to do so? C. In case that an individual tenderer (an organization) is awarded a lot after bidding as Prime Contractor, and has been co-contractor/partner or subcontractor in a grouping applying in other lots, would this grouping be eligible to be awarded any lots? Question 2. In the case that an individual Tenderer or a grouping applies electronically to more than one lot, should he send electronically as many single folders, as the number of lots that he will apply for, naming each folder with the number of the lot ('March 67-UU-DO-CMEMS-DEM4-LOT X (number of the lot)'? In this case, each single folder submitted will contain all documents I to V, as described in the Tender Regulations, is that correct? If this is the case, will section C (Aim of the application) of the document I (the application letter) be filled out only with one lot number, for each folder submission?

Rponse : Question 1-A: The answer is Yes to both questions. Question 1-B: Is it possible for an organization to be co-contractor/partner of a grouping in more than one lots (different grouping for each lot)? Answer: Yes If this is the case, if more than one lot is selected to be awarded, will it be acceptable for this organization to contribute to more than one lot, under the condition that it has claimed (at the proposal stage) that it has the full capacity to do so? Answer: If the grouping has submitted the same offer for all the lots, only one lot will be attributed to the grouping and the other offers will not be taken into account. If the groupings (and the offers) are different for each lot, the offers submitted will be taken into account and analyzed for all lots. Question 1-C: In case that an individual tenderer (an organization) is awarded a lot after bidding as Prime Contractor, and has been co-contractor/partner or subcontractor in a grouping applying in other lots, would this grouping be eligible to be awarded any lots? Answer: Yes Question 2. In the case that an individual Tenderer or a grouping applies electronically to more than one lot, should he send electronically as many single folders, as the number of lots that he will apply for, naming each folder with the number of the lot ('March 67-UU-DO-CMEMS-DEM4-LOT X (number of the lot)'? Answer: Yes In this case, each single folder submitted will contain all documents I to V, as described in the Tender Regulations, is that correct? If this is the case, will section C (Aim of the application) of the document I (the application letter) be filled out only with one lot number, for each folder submission? Answer: Individual tenderers or groupings should submit a complete file for each lot that they apply to, and section C in document I should indicate only one lot number.
