Question details
Lot C - Hosting
If the hosting environment (rack space, rack, hardware, software) is exclusively rented by the bidding consortium, is it required to sub-contract the datacentre operator in addition? If yes, is this also the case when the DC operator is a sister company of the bidder?
The tenderer must provide the service as described in Annex II Technical specifications. All tasks needed for the delivery of the service can be either provided by the tenderer or, if needed, by a subcontractor. If tasks are subcontracted, the tenderer must indicate whether it intends to subcontract all or part of the performance of the Contract, if awarded, by filling in the “Subcontracting information” and the “Subcontractor’s declaration” of the Standard Reply Form. This also applies if the subcontractor is a sister company of the bidder. This is not needed if the bidder is a consortium and the company providing the services is a member of the consortium.
