The European Central Bank (ECB) is considering launching a tender procedure to procure a framework agreement for the provision of support services for DG-MIP (Directorate General Market Infrastructure and Payments). In this respect, the DG-MIP will require different types of external services, which comprise consultancy; agency and other services on specific issues (e.g. surveys, software development, training, project management, planning, testing, technical support, etc.).

Hence the ECB (DG-MIP) is seeking information from potential providers via the present non-binding market survey in order to facilitate the preparation of a potential tender procedure (in relation to its scope, feasibility, preconditions, etc.).

Further information is provided on the ECB procurement website (at the URL indicated in section II.2.14 below).

Extended TitleMarket Consultation Pertaining to a Potential Frameword Agreement for the Provision of Support Services for DG-MIP (PRO-005116)
Extended Description

The European Central Bank (ECB) is considering launching a tender procedure to procure a framework agreement for the provision of support services for DG-MIP (Directorate General Market Infrastructure and Payments).

DG-MIP’s mandate is to act as operator, overseer and catalyst in the field of market infrastructure and payments. To perform these three complementary roles, DG-MIP coordinates and supports the operation and development of Eurosystem market infrastructures (TARGET Services), conducts oversight of specific market infrastructures and payment instruments and acts as a catalyst to improve the overall functioning of the euro area market infrastructure from an innovation and integration perspective.

To support these functions, the DG-MIP will require different types of external services, which comprise consultancy; temporary labour and other services on specific issues (e.g. surveys on market trends, ad-hoc financial topics, statistical market infrastructure and financial sectors analysis, software development, education and training, project management, planning, testing, technical support, etc.).

Hence the ECB (DG-MIP) is seeking information from potential providers via a market survey in order to facilitate the preparation of a potential tender procedure (in relation to its scope, feasibility, preconditions, etc.).

This market survey is a non-binding inquiry for information that aims solely at soliciting feedback from potential suppliers at facilitating the preparation of the planned tender procedure.

This market survey is neither a pre-requisite for tendering nor a call for expression of interest/applications nor an invitation to tender/request for proposals. Further, the ECB is not at this time seeking binding offers and will not accept unsolicited proposals.

The ECB will treat the information received from potential suppliers in strict confidentiality.

Participation in this market survey does not create any obligations for the ECB. In particular, the ECB is not obliged to launch a tender procedure, or to invite the participants in the survey to participate in any future ECB tender procedure, nor to award them a contract, or to reimburse them for any expenses incurred when responding to this market survey.

If the ECB goes forward with the planned tender procedure, a Contract Notice will be published in the Official Journal of the European Union and on the ECB’s website, in line with the provisions laid down in the ECB Procurement Decision 2016/2.

Further information is provided on the ECB procurement website (at the URL indicated in section II.2.14 below).
