oncNGS Open Market Consultation (OMC)
The oncNGS PCP project launch its Open Market Consultation!
oncNGS aims to trigger through a Pre-Commercial Procurement (PCP) new solutions to be developed and tested to address the following challenge: successful implementation in routine clinical care practice of large “cellular free DNA” molecular diagnostics based on NGS technology by providing an integrated, cost-efficient and standardized sequencing and analytical data interpretation and reporting system in various oncology care settings in the EU.
All interested operators are invited to take part in an open market consultation (OMC), regardless of their geographic location, the size or governance structure of their organization. The OMC will provide you an overview on the procurement objectives, the PCP process and the main clauses of the contract. You will also have the opportunity to ask questions. It will be held in English.
About the OMC:
In the Open Market Consultation we wish to interact with the market in order to better understand the market maturity to satisfy the desired common minimum requirements, the regulatory & standardization environment, the market readiness to realistically address buyers business case and accept the envisaged contracts set-up.
