Goodbye paper! ESA Tendering is now online
From 15 March, esa-star – ESA’s System for Tendering And Registration – will be available to internal and external users.
Go to esa-star: https://esastar-emr.sso.esa.int/
The esa-star is a fully electronic, integrated, internet-based tendering system that improves the end-to-end procurement process and makes it easier to exchange information between ESA and industry.
It also provides a Registration and Management facility for external Entities, featuring a simplified and user-friendly registration questionnaire, as well as number of other improvements.
The esa-star registration replaces the “Industry Outlook” under EMITS.
Registered EMITS users will find all their data has been carried over to esa-star and are invited to familiarise themselves with the new system and review their information.
Initially, just a selected number of ESA Tender Actions will be routed to esa-star, most other ESA Tender Actions will remain the same until autumn.
The selected ESA Tender Actions using esa-star will include several procurement types such as: competitive and restricted Invitations to Tender; Requests for Proposal under EXPRO; non-competitive Requests for Quotation; Announcement of Opportunities; Calls for Proposals; and Best Practices.
The following Open Competitive Tender Actions will be issued through esa-star:
|Components for realization of rad-hard GaN MMICs|
|High Level vibration/Shock relays & development and evaluation|
|Radio Frequency Interference Scenarios, Application Requirements and Counteraction Techniques|
|Modelling of Electrostatic Environment of Ion Emitting Spacecraft (PTRP)|
