1 Electronic Systems Support LV PS Procurement - Status February 28, 2005

2 28 February cp LV PS Procurement 2 LV PS Procurement Process Common action between (Parts of) ALICE, ATLAS, CMS, LHCb Invitation to tender CERN rules apply Open call for tender to all CERN & LHC collaboration member states Rules The lowest technically conformant bidder(s) wins! Advantages Larger quantities – lower prices Organised & supported by ESS in the same way as the LHC crates Single point of contact for suppliers and users

3 28 February cp LV PS Procurement 3 LV PS Procurement Schedule July Market Survey closing 5 companies qualified January 3 Call for tender sent out February 14 Call for tender closing February 22 Call for tender opening Last week & this week Clarification of the offers March 3 LECC - discussion on contract and procedures for contract operation If approval is given by LECC, FI Purchasing will formally be told that we wish to place contracts Triggers the formal notification to the suppliers concerned Early March Samples will be ordered for testing The frame contracts will be negotiated Based on existing contracts Aimed at concluding by mid March Mid March Contract placement Early - mid May (8 weeks later) Sample testing starts Acceptance of samples Autumn First orders (Small quantities of non- controversial versions from summer?) This is OPTIMISTIC

4 28 February cp LV PS Procurement 4 LV PS Test Schedule List of tests (to be) performed with methods and results For formal acceptance As given in tender specification First priority in order to be able to place contract Additional tests For “characterisation” Limitations & extra features Understand how to use the PS in real applications

5 28 February cp LV PS Procurement 5 LV PS Test Schedule - Remarks If the equipment is “known” then Need to assess all tests already done for: Relevance Was the equipment tested representative? Quality Were the test conditions accepted and data correctly recorded? Etc. Decide on tests to be verified/repeated/completed
