Service contacts:  Geantcloud@fccn.pt

From this contact you can get more specific contacts from suppliers qualified for Portugal.

Document yourself on the solutions available, and pick the one (or several) more suited to your needs.

To realize a purchase contract, ask FCCN for the relevant official documents.

You can purchase on 2 alternative models:

  • Direct award – pick an offer from the proposals qualified on the framework
  • Mini-competition – further your own requirements and do a competitive process

Both processes need to be conducted under the legislation of the country where the framework originated. However, any litigation that may emerge, after your purchase contract is signed, can be conducted on you own jurisdiction.
