2.5 Description détaillée des produits
The Contracting Authority is procuring combat clothing and workwear in several lots for the Department of Defence, Civil Protection and Sport and other federal offices. To this end, some specialist support is also required to assist in the development of these. A public procurement procedure will be used to determine the supplier base. The first lots will be allocated as soon as the award decision has been made. Future lots will be contracted out as individual orders; these will be awarded on a competitive basis to the suppliers that have framework contracts. These framework contracts are limited to a period of 5 years. The Contracting Authority has the option of extending the framework contracts by two years plus another two years. These framework contracts explicitly do not cover the items that are being developed as part of the project "modular clothing and equipment system" (MBAS). Invitations to tender will be issued separately for these.
