Procurement – External Service Contract for creation of the European Nature Academy training hub & tools
The contracting authority is looking to engage with an experienced external service provider to create the European Nature Academy training hub and associated tools. The training hub and tools will function as the project’s digital online platform and portal.
This external technical assistance contract requires the following three main deliverables:
- The creation of a new online learning platform (the European Nature Academy’s training hub);
- The migration of content (a mix of learning materials, tailor-made videos and recordings and presentations) from the existing Moodles and other online sources which will be adapted to fit the new online platform;
- The further technical development of new functions to be made available through the existing eNatura2000 smartphone app.
The project requires a technical development contractor who is innovative, solution-oriented and able to think with partners. Of course, it is essential that the contractor is fully competent in the necessary technical development services but, equally, is able to anticipate and incorporate advanced new technologies.
Previous experience of delivering similar work as an external service contractor within the scope of an EU funded project would be an advantage. Furthermore, those bidding for this contract should be able to demonstrate familiarity with EU funded project terms and conditions. In addition, the product must be maintained for a minimum of 5 years post project end (i.e., from July 2024).
Indicatively, the maximum value of this contract is €84,000 in gross, inclusive of VAT.
Bids must be submitted in English. Organisations submitting a tender will be expected to set out how they will deliver the contract effectively and efficiently and demonstrate relevant technical knowledge, skills, and experience.
