ECMWF aims to achieve both quality and value for money in the procurement of goods and services.

What we buy

The type of goods and services required by ECMWF vary depending on the needs of the organisation at any one time. Past tenders have included procurement of servers and desktops, cabling and infrastructure, provision of temporary office space, and the remodelling of our library.  ECMWF is currently issuing Invitations to Tender (ITTs) for Copernicus services (see below).  Copernicus ITTs are available on ECMWF's eProcurement portal.  Other (non Copernicus) procurements are listed below on this web page with the relevant documents.

Suppliers

Please refer to the lists of current tenders and requests for proposal to see if there are goods or services you can offer us.

As an international organisation, we are governed by our Convention and its associated financial regulations.

Tendering process

We use an open tender process in accordance with our financial regulations. Information on how the process works for each ITT or Request for Proposal will be included in the published documentation.

If you have any questions about specific procurements, you should follow the instructions in the published documents to submit your questions.  If the procurement has been advertised in the portal you will need to express interest in the procurement in the portal and then submit your question through the portal. Please read through what we are looking for before contacting us.

Current ECMWF Copernicus tenders

Copernicus is the European Union (EU) flagship programme monitoring the earth's environment using satellite and in-situ observations. ECMWF is operating two services on behalf of the EU: the Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring Service and the Copernicus Climate Change Service.

We publish Contract Notices in the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU).  We have also published Prior Information Notices in the OJEU for procurements for Copernicus Services.   Other Notices and ITT's will be added from time to time so see Copernicus procurement for the latest updates.
