II.1.4)Short description of the contract or purchase(s)
This public procurement competition relates to the supply of a Next Generation Sequencing Instrument (NGS Sequencer) for Teagasc Moorepark. DNA Sequencing is now an essential component of all fields of biological science. As it is not feasible for all research institutes to purchase/operate a suite of state-of-the-art sequencing platforms, the international model has been to develop centralised centres to provide low-cost services to researchers. This provides key competitive advantages with respect to carrying out high-quality research, joint programming and securing international funding. The further expansion of the APC Microbiome Institute at Teagasc, Moorepark to become a centralised Irish Sequencing Centre, through the procurement of a Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) Instrument, will considerably benefit Irish research institutes and industry alike. The purpose of this Competition is to establish a single supplier framework agreement contract for Goods (‘Goods Framework Contract’) with the Contracting Authority, Teagasc.
