COMPLETE project aims at optimizing the spending of public resources when purchasing network equipment and related services. As a key approach towards this goal, the project will create a common information platform for public procurers, while it will support them in the procurement process by providing the organizational and technical expertise.
The content will be gathered from the biggest vendors of optical transport system equipment. The platform will significantly help the public procurers’ decision making, and in some cases it will enable the conducting of procurements that previously would not have been possible due to various organizational and technological constraints (for example lack of access to specific technical information and roadmaps).
The information gathered will be accurate, measurable and comparable in order for the reader to understand each vendor’s positioning regarding particular technical features. The project will directly coordinate procurement procedures with respect to optical network solutions for the National Research and Education Networks and public entities. It will also support public bodies in procurement procedures and indicate how the procurements can be synchronized with other European Commission programs.
