The cancelation is due to the fact that some CPV codes were erroneously omitted from the original publication.
DG CNECT will re-publish the call for tenders for Lot 1 of the before mentioned procedure and allow a similar time period as the one allowed originally for tender preparation: 46 days. The corrigendum will shortly be published in the Official Journal.
Candidates that have submitted tenders for the cancelled Lot 1 may maintain their tenders for the re-published call or re-submit new tenders. Candidates that wish to maintain their tenders for the re-published call should inform the Commission via e-mail to CNECT-F4@ec.europa.eu before the deadline for the submission of tenders in the re-published call.

In today's context where open data, open services, and open decision practices are starting to be implemented at all levels of public administration, sustainable methodologies must be devised to assess innovation in the Public Sector, in particular concerning increasingly open, distributed and locally‑provisioned eGovernment services. This call for tenders seeks to provide a framework to monitor innovation in the Public Sector using innovative, open, and more sustainable methodologies. It will also support the engagement of Public Sector stakeholders to increase the visibility of the monitoring exercises, so as to boost the practical usage of the monitoring outputs and stimulate further research that makes use of collected data to derive deeper insight about the modernisation of the Public Sector.
