Question details
Budget headlines
In the financial form provided there are two headlines specifying: "B. Total price for the optional RENEWAL (max € 700 000) subtotal WP 1 + WP 2 + WP 3 + Subtotal (10)" and "C. Total price used for the assessment of the financial offer subtotal WP 1 + WP 2 + WP 3 + Subtotal (10)" Could you please clarify what you consider as WP 3? Please also explain why subtotal (10) should be added separately to the WPs totals, as it is already included under WP 2. Concerning the renewal period total costs. The formula presented seems not to be correct if it relates to the figures presented for the Initial contract: "subtotal WP 1 + WP 2 + WP 3 + Subtotal (10)" We consider that for the Renewal period the activities to be implemented are different both qualitatively and quantitatively.

Indeed, Annex 7 contains an involuntary clerical mistake as the services to be carried out for the initial contract and the renewal are organised in 2 Work packages only. The breakdown of prices for the initial contract is therefore correct. Please disregard the references to WP3 and Subtotal (10), and READ the headings as follows: Instead of Heading B. Total price for the optional RENEWAL (max € 700 000) subtotal WP 1 + WP 2 + WP 3 + Subtotal (10) Please READ: Heading B. Total price for the optional RENEWAL (max € 700 000) Instead of Heading C. Total price used for the assessment of the financial offer subtotal WP 1 + WP 2 + WP 3 + Subtotal (10) please READ: Heading C. Total price used for the assessment of the financial offer. Furthermore, in the calculation of your offer for the possible renewal, please refer to Section 1.8 of the Tender Specifications: “The renewal will cover the same tasks as described above, except for Task 2.1 and 2.2 which will be obsolete for the renewal. More details on the tasks and methodology for the renewal period are given in section 1.6.”
