In connection with the EU project of Unwired health, CIMT was granted by The Market Development Fund, which was to support the process of the preparation of a different and innovative award procedure; Pre-Commercial Procurement process.
The grant covered the preliminary phase (identification of needs in the region) to the tendering process because this phase was not covered by the funding of Unwired Health. Throughout the phase, needs and demands for solutions were to be mapped and described.
The phase of identification of needs was to ensure that the preliminary work for the international contract award procedure was given the necessary resources, thus making us able to make the most of the knowledge given by the project.
After the identification of needs, the plan was to carry out a pre-commercial purchase at a European level together with the additional partners of the Unwired Health project. However, it emerged that it would provide the buying regions with inexpedient costs, and because of this, the project was concluded after the preliminary phase.
