The European Union Agency for the Space Programme (EUSPA) has a key role in the Galileo Programme, the EU Global Navigation Satellite System, ensuring the service provision, implementing, supporting the security of the EU Space Programme, and promoting and developing the markets for EU companies. The GSMC, Galileo Security Monitoring Centre, as part of EUSPA, is being responsible for several major tasks including overall management of the system’s security, management of Galileo Public Regulated Service (PRS) access, command and control of European GNSS, and provision of PRS and GNSS security expertise and analysis. The GSMC ensures the reliability of the Galileo system, which is crucial for its success. The GSMC has its main location in France, with a backup site located in Spain. This site is essential to provide redundancy for the security of Galileo. The Galileo Security Monitoring Centre (GSMC) delivers services 24/7.
The procurement concerns the provision of guarding services for the Galileo Security Monitoring Center located in Saint-Germain-en-Laye (France), a critical infrastructure requiring 24/7 guarding services. EUSPA is committed to promoting the widest participation possible by economic operators, in particular start-ups, new entrants, and SMEs.
The Agency is thus organizing an industry day on 20 February 2023 at 14.30 to present the details of the procurement for “Provision of Guarding Services for the GSMC”.
Potential participants will have the opportunity to learn more about the mission of the European Union Agency for the Space Programme and the procurement documentation and submission process.
