Communication Platform for Tenders of Novel Transport Networks
The ultimate goal of the project COMPLETE (Communication Platform for Tenders of Novel Transport Networks) is to optimize the usage of public funds for building beyond state-of-the-art public networks. The key approach towards this goal is a creation of a common information platform for public procurers and support them in the whole procurement process chain by providing the organizational and technical expertise.
Increasing complexity of public procurement procedures enforces the need for creating a EU-wide entity to support public institutions with know-how and clear guidelines how to efficiently collect all required market information and conduct tenders.
Public sector, in order to efficiently implement beyond state-of-the-art optical equipment in today’s networks needs to synchronize efforts by building a common procurement roadmap specifying common requirements in the short term and mid-to-long term areas of common European interests.
COMPLETE project activities will deliver a database of the latest and future optical transport infrastructure from the industry providers to support the public procurement procedures.
Project Consortium consists of three European NREN networks.
