  Provision of Transport Core Services (TCS) Urgent Requirement (UR) 2020/0CM03331

Under the NCI Agency letter N° NCIA/ACQ/2018/1728 dated 6 November 2018, a Notification of Intent (NOI) was issued announcing the requirement for Enhanced Leased Transmission Services (CTD project). The present Notification withdraws the previous announcement and amendments issued. This decision is required in order to allow firms previously not interested in participating in the opportunity due to the revisions made to the Agency's requirement. The basis of award is revised in response to the Urgent Requirement (UR) 2020/0CM03331, which demands an uplift of the transmission services for the core sites only. This is a new notification of an International Competitive Bidding for the provision of Transport Core Services (TCS) to replace the transmission bearer services that support the so-called High Speed Core (HSC) of the NATO Enterprise, currently delivered under Leased Transmission (LTX) contract. The HSC interconnects the three core sites of the NATO Communications Infrastructure (NCI): Mons, Lago Patria and Evere. The NCI Agency also intends to compete in the future the Transport Edge Services, which are also part of the LTX contract. Such competition is planned under the framework of the Capability Program Plan (CPP) for NATO Enterprise-wide Core Communications and Multimedia Access Services, currently in preparation within Allied Command Transformation (ACT).
