1. What is DYNAMO PCP? 

DYNAMO PCP (Pre-Commercial Procurement) is an innovative solution that aims to enable the use of data from various organisational IT systems and other databases or records, to promote evidence-supported care pathway planning adaptable to disruptive care situations. This tool should aid in swiftly adjusting to changing conditions during crises, promoting faster response times, and enhancing the quality of reactions during systemic disruptions. It should also help in designing temporary service pathways activated during a crisis and deactivated post-crisis. 
Specifically, DYNAMO PCP aims to make EU healthcare systems more resilient and better prepared to respond to public health threats than has been achieved so far. 

The European Union (EU) is funding a joint Pre-Commercial Procurement initiative coordinated and led by Istituto per Servizi di Ricovero e Assistenza agli Anziani (ISRAA). ISRAA acts as the Lead Procurer and is responsible for signing and awarding the Framework Agreement and the specific contracts for all phases of the PCP, in the name and on behalf of the following Buyers Group

  • Agència de Qualitat i Avaluació Sanitàries de Catalunya (AQuAS), Spain

  • Warmińsko-Mazurskie Centrum Chorób Płuc, (WMCC), Poland 

  • Irmandade da Santa Casa da Misericordia da Amadora (SCMA), Portugal 

Diving into PCP 
Pre-Commercial Procurements allow public entities to acquire R&D services from various Technology Providers simultaneously. This approach enables a thorough comparison of alternative solutions, promoting the identification of the most cost-effective and valuable options. PCP involves a risk-benefit sharing arrangement under market conditions between public procurers and Technology Providers. Importantly, there is a clear separation between the PCP phase and the subsequent deployment of commercial volumes of end-products.  

The PCP procedure consists of three phases: Phase 1 (Solution design), Phase 2 (Prototype development), and Phase 3 (Development of pilot systems and testing), as illustrated in the following picture:

Selection criteria for this tender
All information on the selection criteria for the Impress PCP call for tenders can be reached at the following document: 

  • Document “DYNAMO CfT TD1 Call for Tender” (section 3.3). 

Total budget and budget distribution per Phase
The maximum total budget for the PCP is €3,350,000 excluding VAT. 
The table below presents an overview of the details of each PCP Phase: 

PCP Phase 

N. of Contractors 

Maximum estimated budget cost per Contractor 

Total estimated budget per Phase 

Phase 1: Solution design 

A maximum of 6 

85,000 € 

510,000 € 

Phase 2: Prototype development 

A maximum of 3 

397,000 € 

1,190,000 € 

Phase 3: Development of pilot systems and testing 

A maximum of 2 

825,000 € 

1,650,000 € 

For Phase I, offers will be accepted until the remaining budget is insufficient to fund the next best tender. The exact number of contracts finally awarded will thus depend on the prices offered and the number of tenders passing the evaluation. As leftover budget from the previous phase will be transferred to the next phase, the total budget available for Phases II and III may eventually be slightly higher than stated here (but the maximum budget per contractor for Phases II and III will remain the same). The lower the average price of tenders, the more contracts can be awarded. However, the total value of the contracts awarded can also be lower than initially expected if there are fewer tenders than expected that meet the minimum evaluation criteria.
