The OCRE project ran a very large-scale framework tender in 40 countries. This required managing a large European Tender process which resulted in 474 framework contracts for a large variety of Cloud Platforms across 40 NRENs. The process was very complex to manage but granted a series of lessons learnt.

Monique Pellinkhof, Procurement Specialist at GEANT will present at the session together with Mr Gavan McFeely from HEAnet, covering the following points:

-managing a tender that receives almost 1100 bids
-having the frameworks signed
