This Bid Bulletin is being issued to answer official queries submitted in writing by the prospective bidders, to wit:

QUERIES OF DOMESTIC TRADING CORPORATION

PAGASA-BAC ANSWERS

Section B2 - Qualification of the Bidder"

Manufacturer should have supplied and installed the same for at least five (5) years in any country. Bidder should submit as proof of completed/awarded contracts of similar scope."

Does this mean that a manufacturer must have installed a lightning network in any country more than five (5) years ago?

TOR Section C.2.

The manufacturer should have supplied and installed Lightning Detection System (LDS) within the last five (5) years.

Section El- Severe Weather Now-casting Enhancement Network (SWNEN)

Why is there a minimum number of sensors required? There must be no minimum number of sensors so long as the manufacturer can achieve the accuracy required.

May we suggest that PAGASA consider specifying the performance of the network over the area of interest: location accuracy, detection efficiency of CG and IC, classification accuracy (ability to distinguish between CG and K'), polarity, peak current estimation etc., and allow the vendor to recommend sensor numbers, supported by rationale. 

Likewise, integration of lightning detection sensors to Automatic weather stations does not add value to both lightning detection accuracy and vice versa (other weather parameters). It may even cause delay in transferring the data to the network.

Please take note too that an individual sensor of a lightning detection network does not provide any information as we always need a group of sensors to locate lightning within a network.

To have the most reliable and accurate data on lightning detection, the lightning detection network shall be an independent instrument and not part of the weather station network.

TOR Section F.1 (Severe Weather Now-casting Enhancement Network).

The bidder should provide the minimum number of equipment as specified which is 28.   The number of AWS and LDS has been requested by PAGASA to ensure sufficient redundancy and mesoscale coverage. Proposals shall be itemized accordingly by the respective bidders in their submissions.

Performance of the Severe Weather Now-casting Enhancement Network (SWNEN) as a whole and the associated Lightning Detection System technology is specified in Section G of the TOR as follows:

a)      Lightning Detection Sensor (LDS) Performance Specifications.

·      The LDN shall use the Time-Of-Arrival methodology to integrate multiple Lightning Detection Sensors into a single network used to precisely locate and classify lightning strike data.

·      The LDN shall enable the location of lightning strikes, and their classification as either Cloud to Ground (CG) or In-Cloud (IC) flashes

 

·      The LDN shall operate according to the following performance criteria:

o   Ninety percent (90%) Detection Efficiency (DE) rate for Cloud to Ground (CG) lightning over the specified coverage area.  Methodologies used to arrive at the DE rate must be described and verified through ground truth case studies supplied in the bidder’s response.

o   Fifty percent (50%) Detection Efficiency rate for In-Cloud (IC) lightning over the specified coverage area.  Methodologies used to arrive at the DE rate must be described and verified through comparative case studies supplied by the supplier/bidder.

o   Location Accuracy of CG and IC Flashes shall be an average of 300 meters or better. Methodologies used to arrive at the Location must be described and verified through ground truth case studies supplied by the supplier/bidder.

Bidders are invited to submit performance projection maps and associated methodologies demonstrating how the prospective SWNEN that is configured in accordance with the tender specifications will perform once installed and operating under contract.

Both the performance criteria and the number of LDS are set because PAGASA may find it difficult to verify performance claims alone. There is no reference high resolution network in Philippines today. Performance claims are likely to be based on projections from other geographies. Including the number of sensors in addition to performance criteria helps ensure that SWNEN will achieve desired metrics.

The Automatic Weather Station (AWS) and LDS may be located side by side at the individual PAGASA facilities listed in the site location list.   The bidder shall comply with data latency requirements in Section G.4(b) and (c) in accordance with the Terms of Reference which are as follows:

b.                                                             Basic Lightning Data

                      i.  The LDN DMS shall record the following data characterizing the observed lightning activity:

·         Pulse or Flash time in Coordinated Universal Time (UTC)

·         Location

·         Latitude in decimal degrees

·         Longitude in decimal degrees

·         Polarity

·         Signal strength

·         Type: Cloud to Ground (CG) or In-Cloud (IC)

·         Height of IC in km

 

                    ii.   Total time from when lightning occurs to when that flash is reported must be 1 minute or less for 99% of all flashes.

                iii.   Accuracy of the reported time of lightning strikes shall be one (1) second or better.

               iv.   No more than 1% of reported lightning flashes can be considered false alarms.

c.    Severe Weather Warnings Based on Total Lightning

                   i.   The LDN DMS shall use the collected lightning data to identify and track the initiation and development of convective storm cells and to automatically generate real-time severe weather warnings.

                 ii.   The LDN DMS shall automatically cluster lightning data into storm cells with defined boundaries at no longer than 1 minute intervals and no less than 1-minute latency.

                iii.   The storm cells shall record perimeter boundaries, center, size, speed and direction of travel, as well as IC and CG flash and strike rates every minute.

iv. The LDN DMS shall have the capacity to issue no less than three different levels (colors) of weather warnings: mild, moderate and severe.

v. A Severe Weather Warning shall be issued by the LDN DMS once a storm cell's flash rate characteristics have exceeded thresholds indicating an imminent severe weather threat.

vi. The Severe Weather Warning shall be in two forms: a polygon indicating the speed and direction of the threat and its probable location and duration and a corresponding text alert bulletin in CAP (Common Alert Protocol) format.

vii. The Severe Weather Warnings shall be automated and provide advanced warning on the potential for severe weather such as frequent lightning, hail, heavy rainfall, wind gusts and other types of severe weather.

viii. The Severe Weather Warnings shall be updated at regular intervals until the dangerous weather activity is no longer a threat and the warning expires.

ix. The Severe Weather Warnings shall be made available via a documented API and be fully accessible to Real-time Weather Data Display or other GIS display systems, databases or applications including SMS, IVR, and Smartphone Apps.


Section E2 - Mesoscale AWS Network (MAWSN)

Please note that the existing PAGASA AWS network does not have any LDS sensor or data. Hence, data from the existing PAGASA AWS network will be supplemented by these mesoscale AWS reporting real-time surface weather conditions to PAGASA for monitoring and forecasting high impact phenomena at their locations is quite unclear. The only data integration that will be supplemented by the new AWS to the existing AWS network is the data from all the AWS sensors and not the lightning data.

TOR Section G.2 (Mesoscale AWS Network).

The Lightning Detection system will be installed at PAGASA sites, there should also be an AWS at the said site.  The bidder shall be responsible in the integration of the AWS into the Mesoscale AWS Network (MAWS).   It shall also be responsible in providing methodology in collecting data from other PAGASA AWS in order to supplement the required observations to generate the Severe Weather Now-casting System requirements.   Data from PAGASA’s current AWS, SWNEN and MAWSN shall be used in the WFS in accordance with Section G.6(a), 6(g)as follows:

6.    Sensor-Based Weather Forecasting System (WFS)

a.    The WFS shall generate and deliver medium-range (1-14 day) forecasts for locations across Philippines to PAGASA forecasters.

i.  WFS shall use data from the Mesoscale AWS and Severe Weather LDN as well as other data streams, to improve the accuracy of forecast information.

ii.   WFS will deliver point forecasts tuned with sensor data for each of the 28 sites where the AWS/LDS are installed.

 

iii.  WFS is to deliver forecasts for a number of points to be specified by PAGASA.

g.    WFS shall utilize AWS and convective storm information collected, as inputs to improve model forecast output, and provide model verification.

Section E3c - Sensor Based Weather Forecasting System

"Data service that will receive data from the Mesoscale AWS Network and the Severe Weather Now casting Enhancement Network as well as existing AWA and other regional and international weather and climate data streams to deliver medium range (1-14 days) forecast of several points across Philippines to PAGASA".

As PAGASA is a weather forecasting agency this requirement is difficult to understand. Please provide further clarification with required performance metrics.

TOR Section F.3.c (Sensor-based Weather Forecasting System).

Conceptually, this is a data management system or application that will be responsible in managing a data service that will receive data from the Mesoscale AWS Network and the Severe Weather Now-casting Enhancement Network as well as existing AWS and other regional and international weather and climate data streams to deliver medium-range (1-14 day) forecasts of several points across Philippines to PAGASA.    The bidder can provide its own system that will deliver the same services.

This is not an equipment only tender.  PAGASA routinely procures supporting technologies and associated services to enhance its capacity as the weather forecasting agency of the Philippines. As noted in the requirements, this can be a full range of observation and forecast data originating in a variety of sources that improve forecast accuracy and early warning.  The specifications for the WFS are presented in sufficient technical detail in Section G.6 to meet the needs of users at PAGASA.

Section Fla - Lightning Detection Network Hardware Specifications

 "Apart from the network performance criteria there should be no fewer than 28 Lightning Detection Sensors (LDS) included in network configuration."

May we suggest that network performance is the critical requirement and not the statement no fewer than 28 sensors. There are lightning technologies that can deliver the performance, and provided redundancy, with significantly fewer sensors. PAGASA will increase its cost by including this sensor requirement in its current specifications. It is worth noting that Vaisala's network across the USA, the National Lightning Detection Network (NLDN), the longest running, best performing network in the world uses 120 sensors, compared to our competitor that requires 900 sensors.

TOR Section G.1.a. Lightning Detection Network Hardware Specifications

“Apart from the network performance criteria (above) there shall be no fewer than 28 Lightning Detection Sensors (LDS) included in network configuration”

The bidder should provide the minimum number of equipment as specified.   The number of AWS and LDS has been requested by PAGASA to ensure sufficient redundancy and mesoscale coverage.   Proposals shall be itemized accordingly by the respective bidders in their submissions.

Section Flb - Lightning Detection Sensors

"Sensors shall enable total lightning detection by wideband frequency range of detection".

Wide frequency bands lead to greater exposure to electromagnetic noise and higher frequency bands means sensors must be located closer together to use that frequency, which means PAGASA needs to purchase more sensors than necessary to achieve the required performance. May we suggest that this requirement be removed?

TOR Section F.1.b.

“Sensors shall enable total lightning detection by wideband frequency range of detection”. Referring to Section G.1(b) of the TOR which is as follows:

d.   Lightning Detection Sensor (LDS)

·      The LDS method of lightning detection must be described in detail in the bidder’s response document.

·      LDS electronics shall be housed in environmentally sealed enclosures.

·      LDS shall operate using standard internet (IP) communications and electric power.

·      LDS shall require no regularly scheduled maintenance.

·      LDS shall enable remote calibration, software updates and testing without site visits.

·      LDS shall have digital and/or analog noise filtering at sensor site

·      LDS shall have detection range 700km or greater 

·      Sensors shall enable total lightning detection by wideband frequency range of detection

·      Timing accuracy shall be under +/- 5nsec to GPS/UTC

·      There should be no sensor-dead/re-arm time so as to avoid lost data

·      LDS shall be capable of recording and sending the full waveform of the electrical or magnetic field pulse

·      Manufacturer shall have EN ISO 9001 certification and must provide evidence of same.

 

The bidders may provide frequency range of detection as long as it will comply with the deliverables and shall not compromise the performance quality of the system.   Bidders are requested to thoroughly explain their solutions. The requirements state that LDS are to include digital and/or analog noise filtering and are required to have a range of 700km or greater.  The LDS technology can include LF frequencies as well as higher frequencies. Bidders are encouraged to submit technical information on ways their respective systems deal with impacts of exposure to electromagnetic noise on resultant system performance.

Section Fl b - Lightning Detection Sensors (LDS)

"LDS shall be capable of recording and sending the full waveform of the electrical or magnetic field pulse".

This requirement is often encouraged by manufacturers who use a sensor technology that cannot process the waveform at the sensor site itself. These sensors are less sophisticated. There is a significant advantage in communicating only the important parts of the waveform to reduce bandwidth requirements .May we again suggest that this requirement be removed?

TOR Section G.1.b.

“LDS shall be capable of recording and sending the full waveform of the electrical or magnetic field pulse”.     Referring to Section G.1.b:

b)                                            Lightning Detection Sensor (LDS)

·         The LDS method of lightning detection must be described in detail in the bidder’s response document.

·         LDS electronics shall be housed in environmentally sealed enclosures.

·         LDS shall operate using standard internet (IP) communications and electric power.

·         LDS shall require no regularly scheduled maintenance.

·         LDS shall enable remote calibration, software updates and testing without site visits.

·         LDS shall have digital and/or analog noise filtering at sensor site

·         LDS shall have detection range 700km or greater 

·         Sensors shall enable total lightning detection by wideband frequency range of detection

·         Timing accuracy shall be under +/- 5nsec to GPS/UTC

·            There should be no sensor-dead/re-arm time so as to avoid lost data

·            LDS shall be capable of recording and sending the full waveform of the electrical or magnetic field pulse

·            Manufacturer shall have EN ISO 9001 certification and must provide evidence of same.

 

The LDS will be capable of recording and sending the full waveform or partial of the waveform of the electrical or magnetic field pulse as long as it will not compromise the performance quality of the system.  Bidders shall submit all relevant information with their response.

Section F3d - Provide all equipment to protect the AWS

The specifications are so specific on the enclosure box, mounting plate dimensions, weight, outside dimensions, etc. Is this tailored made to a specific brand?

TOR Section F.3.d.

The specifications or dimensions are recommendatory; the bidders can provide their equipment that complies to the essential operational requirements of the equipment.

Section F4d - Lightning Detection Network Data Management System (LDN DMS). Corrective Rainfall Estimates"

The data shall provide the basis for real time thunderstorm rainfall intensity estimates as well as accumulated convective rainfall totals over day, months and seasons. It has not been proven that a lightning based rainfall intensity estimate is in any way close to reality. It has a very high probability of providing misleading information to PAGASA.

TOR Section G.4.d.

“Convective Rainfall Estimates”. PAGASA intends to use the simulated radar information as secondary guidance i.e. backup and gap-fill for PAGASA’s weather radar information. Bidders are invited to submit materials informing PAGASA of limitations (if any) of their algorithms that present lightning in dBz within the RWDDS and/or APIs provided.

Section F8a - Primary data management

May we suggest that PAGASA reconsider the cloud computing for central processing infrastructure as end user might not have the full control of the server.

Having the central processing server at end user's premise will provide more flexibility and control to the overall lightning system.

TOR Section G.8.a.

“Primary data management”. PAGASA shall be provided with the server as specified in Section G.8 of the TOR which shall contain all live data in basic form so that PAGASA can do analyzes, or data manipulation and store it in the server.  PAGASA shall retain fully contracted ownership of the data and the complete technology package procured through this tender for the entire lifecycle. PAGASA shall be given all associated equipment performance guarantees, software licenses, upgrades, etc. on lifecycle basis by means of Service Level Agreement.

Section L - List of Proposed Sites

Again there should not be a minimum number of sensors needed as long as the manufacturer can achieve the accuracy of the LDS. Likewise choosing the sites for LDS sensor installation are difficult as the sites must be free from electro-magnetic noise and disturbance. More sensors requires more sites and more sites requires more land, civil works, installation work, commissioning work etc, Furthermore the risk of theft and vandalism is even higher with so many sensors located at so many sites. Hence more cost is needed.

Lastly, we would really like to know what PAGASA wants to achieve in this project. Our supplier, Vaisala Oy can certainly do a lot with regard to lightning. For instance, we can provide access to our GLD360 (global lightning detection network). Please take note that working with this system is a lot more cost effective, provides broader coverage, and more importantly it will provide all the warning that is needed. Furthermore, the global network is the only way to provide lightning detection based storm warning over the ocean. Global network has been proven to provide good performance. Combining it with a good local precision network is the best possible solution to give advanced warnings in order to save lives and property.

Section L.

The bidder may not meet all the specifications of the tender for SWNEN if with fewer than the required number of AWS/LDS stations located at specified PAGASA stations.

Both the performance criteria and the number of LDS are set because PAGASA may find it difficult to verify performance claims alone. There is no reference high resolution network in the Philippines today. Performance claims are likely to be based on projections from other geographies. Including the number of sensors in addition to performance criteria helps ensure that SWNEN will achieve desired metrics.

The number of AWS/LDS has been requested as well to ensure sufficient redundancy and mesoscale coverage. There are suppliers with higher and lower thresholds. This number is sufficiently leveled. Offers shall be itemized accordingly by the respective bidders in their submissions. The bidder should provide the needed number of equipment sufficiently enough or surpass the required accuracy and other stated requirements.

There are several global lightning detection networks providing data competitive data services. PAGASA encourages bidders with global capabilities to provide information on their respective networks in the region and around the world that can help PAGASA extend the range of useful storm information.


QUERIES OF EAST ASIA SOLUTIONS TECHNOLOGIES CORPORATION

PAGASA-BAC ANSWERS

1)  We want to see a general topology of the network for a clearer picture. The way we understand it as described, there will be a 28-member network of LDS together with AWS, a local server where all lightning and AWS data are stored. Lightning data are stored in real time, while AWS data will be collected every 15mins. We assume (not quite clear as described) all data will be sent to the local PAGASA server through internet. Furthermore, all information will be sent to an international private server (cloud) for forecast computation of both nowcasts and medium range forecasts. If our interpretation is correct, there are several issues we would like to raise, as follows:



 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

a. Firstly, we are concerned with the proliferation of AWSs owned by PAGASA. There are! just too many of them, some of which may be duplication and/or triplication in synoptic/airport and radar stations. We perfectly understand redundancy, but tripling or quadrupling should be avoided for PAGASA's financial and maintenance benefit.

a. PAGASA has a variety of observational and forecasting systems and services at its disposal, each with a dedicated purpose and respective technical specifications. The specific purpose of the MAWSN component of the SWNEN project is stated in some detail in Section A and on. Additionally, per Section F2 and on, the SWNEN shall incorporate data from existing PAGASA AWS as appropriate into the WFS and RWDDS.

b. We are also concerned with PAGASA's policy shift of data ownership and sovereignty. In this project, data will definitely fall into some international private server for supposedly forecast model computation. And we are not talking of just lightning and AWS data prescribed in this project, but some other data, such as perhaps weather surveillance radar, etc. for a better grasp of the computation and assimilation. What will prevent this international private server from utilizing such Philippine data for their own benefit, such as worldwide lightning visualization and forecast, not to mention monthly/yearly subscription of cloud computing? We would not have any issue on such if the LDS instruments were donated by even private organization, and not being paid/bought by PAGASA.

b.   PAGASA shall retain fully contracted ownership of the data and the Severe Weather Now-casting Enhancement Network (SWNEN) procured through this tender over its lifecycle.  Security protocols, access to data, and its potential uses shall be thoroughly defined in the contract between PAGASA and the winning bidder/supplier. This shall be binding upon its cloud computing vendor and any/all subcontractors.  Currently PAGASA makes weather surveillance radar data and other data sets available to a number of partners, which benefits PAGASA in a lawful, contractually defined and fully transparent manner.   PAGASA shall have exclusive rights to these data / information.   The winning bidder may not use any part of this information without written authorization from PAGASA.

c.  PAGASA is spending a great deal of expensive resources for robust computational facility, one of which is the world class Cray computer. Although it has yet to be installed, we still maintain that this mammoth computer can very well fill up the vacuum in case you decide not to proceed with cloud computation. To have some international firm compute for our computational necessities is encroaching into our very core of patriotism. These private international organizations couldn't care less of any computational errors and mis-forecasts. Meanwhile, local forecasters could be blamed of any forecast errors, not necessarily the international private cloud provider.

c.    Reference is made to Section 6. PAGASA uses its existing in-house high speed computing capacity to produce a high resolution local area model forecast.   Per Section 6.e, it would not be possible for PAGASA to run in-house several global forecasting models, perform advanced model output statistics and deliver hourly updates with different forecasts for many points. PAGASA intends to use the statistical forecasts produced by the WFS as supplemental rapid refresh guidance to help improve watches and warnings of severe weather. Bidders shall present findings of third party studies comparing in a statistically significant manner the performance of their respective WFS to other leading forecast producers.

2) We still maintain that LDS network and data collection are necessary on a separate phase. Basing on the above discussion, we respectfully request that PAGASA would instead invest on atmospheric models to incorporate/assimilate lightning information for nowcast and medium range forecast computations in this project, both software and training in another phase.

2. The requirements stand as written. PAGASA requires the SWNEN to generate useful meteorological content on specified predictive timescales in order to help improve watches and warnings of severe weather. Tenderers must bid on the entire scope of the SWNEN project and must deliver the complete operational package for the duration of the contract.

3)  We would make ourselves available whenever you have clarification of our queries and issues raised in this letter; and finally

3. Noted.

4)  May we request your good office to extend the bid opening to at least another two (2) weeks for us to fully prepare of such enormous and very important task ahead.

4. Bid Opening is extended on 05 October 2017.

QUERIES OF WESTPOINT ENGINEERING SUPPLIES

PAGASA-BAC ANSWERS

1. Section G Technical Specifications (2) (a) - Wind speed. Range: 100m/sec. Accuracy: +/- 5% RMS of the reading, mounted 10 meters above ground, aerovane type. - The industry standard range of 75m/see is available on a wide range of anemometers, while 100m/see is not. This tender is for lightning detection foremost, and the AWS is an add on for monitoring purposes. The 1OOm/sand 1O-meter tower requirements add substantial upfront and ongoing maintenance cost to the project. Section 2a contradicts itself by asking for 'aerovane' as well as stating 'AWS packaging. AU weather sensors shall be packaged into a single, all-in-one unit and function without moving parts'. Change requested for (2) (a) - Wind speed. Range: 75m/sec. Accuracy: +/- 5% RMS of the reading

1.   Section G, Technical Specification, 2.a-

Wind Sensor:

Wind speed range: 100meters per second

Sensor height: 10 meters above ground

Sensor shall be Aerovane type

2. Section G Technical Specifications (6) (b) sub section (d) - WFS shall provide updates to the forecast at least everyone hour. Supplier shall be able to provide 15-minute updates for forecasts at a subset of points requested by PAGASA. - Change requested - While the WFS should update forecasts every hour which is the standard norm, the 15-minute update is only applicable when it relates to Severe Weather NowCasting which needs real time updates every 15 minutes. Hence it is requested that this be changed to reflect "supplier to provide 15 minutes updates for severe weather nowcasting based on total lightning detection which impact specific areas". Alternatively, this should be removed.

2. The end-user is amenable to the revision to the specified point that will read as “the supplier shall provide 15 minutes’ updates for the severe weather now-casting based on total lightning detection which shall impact specific areas”

3. Section G Technical Specifications (8) (d) - Data should have an open data format and should have interoperability with PUMIS - What are the various file transfer protocols as it relates to PUMlS? Does PUMIS have a standard interface that can accept different API so that data can be integrated seamlessly? Same with either a SMS, IVR or Mobile App solution. The system's to be interfaced need to be configured to accept standard API protocols.

3. PUMIS interoperability as far as data format is concerned refers to the data in .csv (comma separated value) format.  For the SMS requirement, csv format is also recommended. MP3 format is required for the IVR format.  Restful-API (R-API)is for the Mobile Apps.

4. Clarify solar panel specifications and what is expected from a backup perspective. Is it 24 hours or 48 hours power back up to include the fail over modem (sim cards) as well.  Additionally, will PAGASA provide grid electric supply and also ethernet communications since the equipment is expected to be installed at Radar sites.

4. Please refer to the terms as reflected in section H. General Notes:

    “Planning, Installation and Training Services

  1. Network Installation Plan
a. The supplier/bidder shall conduct a survey of PAGASA radar and synoptic/airport station sites to determine their suitability for deployment of LDS/AWS stations.

b. The supplier/bidder shall recommend optimal network configuration using PAGASA stations.

 c. The supplier/bidder shall ensure that sufficient power, including back-up power, physical security and communication services are available to support the recommended network configuration for the duration of the contract. The bidder shall facilitate these requirements for the system to operation successfully”.

In view of the above, we recommend that the station electrical service be used for the station and the backup solar power supply provides at least 48 hours’ back up time. This includes fail-over modems and sim cards. The internet services at the PAGASA stations can be used, provided however that the setup will not compromise the internet services of the PAGASA station.

5. Section L:

  a. Warranty of 2 years – Is this applicable only for the hardware?

  b. Extended warranty for 10 years on operation and maintenance – since this will mostly be services should this be included? Instead the SLA can cover the 10-year period.

5. Section L:

  a. The warranty for two years covers both software and hardware.

  b. The Service Level Agreement (SLA) covers a 10-year period for operations and maintenance.

 6. Section (J) - Perpetual license on all software licenses shall be provided upon completion and acceptance - Since the period of the license is mentioned as 10 years we recommend that this be changed to 10 years instead of perpetual.

6. Section J:

a. The software license shall be perpetual, the ten-year period covers the life cycle, meaning, should there be modifications or revisions on the application, this shall be covered by the SLA.  Software updates and patches are also included in the Service Level Agreement.

This shall form an integral part of the Bid Documents.

I.  INTEGRATED ENERGY SYSTEMS & RESOURCES, INC.
1.  Technical Specifications 4. DVBS2 Receiver Specifications:

Query: Channel demodulation of 21APSK is not a requirement for the DVB-S2 Receiver by JMA for the HimawariCast transmission. Also the 3 recommended manufacturers of DVBS2 receivers by JMA are not compliant with this requirement. Is it possible to remove this requirement?

Answer: 21APSK is changed to "up to 32APSK". The current HimawariCast Service uses QPSK with DVB-S2, but we recommend to include APSK in order to adapt any possibility in the future including receptions for other satellite services.

2.  Technical Specification 5 & 6. Desktop PCs

Query: We would like to offer Windows 10 Professional instead of Windows 7. Windows 10 has been tested and is compatible with SATAID, Kencast etc. Please confirm that Windows 10 is acceptable.

Answer: We cannot recommend Windows 10 because it is not stable enough for the purpose on the mission critical systems.

3.  Additional requirement from the Bid Bulletin No. 2

"The manufacturer must have an experience with WMO/JMA Project for the installation of HimawariCast Receiving and Processing Systems."

Query: This requirement is referring to a single project awarded in 2015. If this is the only experience accepted then only 1 manufacturer can bid for this project. Will the BAC consider similar project NOT only with WMO/JMA but other JICA funded project?

Answer: As agreed during our pre-bid conference, we considered other similar project specifically for the installation of HimawariCast Receiving and Processing System for the purpose of determining the experience and the success related on this and subject for verification.


II. STATE ALLIANCE ENTERPRISES, INC.

Query: May we request your good office to accept the Completed Similar Contract for the HimawariCast the Weather Instruments and Meteorological Equipment, Instrument and Remote Sensing Equipment as long as the Manufacturer itself have an experience with WMO/JMA Project for the installation of Himawaricast Receiving and Processing System which can verify at WMO or any form of documents?

Answer 1. Completed Similar Contract must be related to Meteorological Instrument/ Meteorological Remote Sensing Instrument.

2. Experience with similar project other than WMO/JMA Project specifically for the installation of HimawariCast Receiving and Processing System shall be subject for verification on the veracity whether installed at any NMHSs or proof at WMO or any form of documents and the like.

This shall form an integral part of the Bid Documents.

This Bid Bulletin is being issued to answer queries submitted in writing by prospective bidders, to wit:

A.    Queries of American Technologies, Inc.

PAGASA-BAC Answers

As per folder of Sample Bidding Forms: 

·      Tab (B-3 (a)) List of Qualified Key Personnel.

Qualification of Key Personnel Proposed to be Assigned to the Contract

8. PRC License 

·      May we know how many engineers do you need?

·      For the PRC License, can we remove it? Since the proposed solution does not handle any internal electrical requirements hence for any certification we suggest to change it to “Certified Video Conferencing Engineer or Video Conferencing Engineers with at least”. (such individual is trained and certified to install and support the proposed solution) 

1a. We need at least two (2) engineers.

1b. Yes, we can remove the PRC license requirement as long as they are “certified as qualified trained personnel for this field”.

·      Tab (B-3 (c)) Certificate of Employment.

“As __(Designation)__, I know I will have to stay in the job site all the time to supervise and manage the Contract works to the best of my ability, and aware that I am authorized to handle only one (1) contract at a time.” 

·      Please clarify. Do we need to stay in the job site 24x7? Since the proposed solution requires 24x7 offsite it’s a conflict between the requirements also we will handle 8x5 onsite support if any severity/problem occurs with the system that needs to have a stand by assistance. 

2.  You don’t have to stay in the site but  there should  be assistance in any form, email, txt, phone call, messenger,  or on site help if cannot be resolved remotely, within the day of notice.

·      Tab (B-3 (d)) Supplier’s Letter to PE.

1.     That I/we have engaged the services of ___(Name of Employee)___, to be the ___(Designation)___ of the ___(Name of Contract)___, who is a ___(Profession)___ with Professional License Certificate No. _______ issued on ____________________ and who has performed the duties in the ____________________________ of the Contracts enumerated in the duly filled Form ___.

·      Can we just remove the “Professional· License Certificate No. _______ issued on ________”? Again the proposed solution does not handle any internal electrical requirements hence for any certification we suggest to change it to “Certified Video Conferencing Engineer or Video Conferencing Engineers with at least”. (such individual is trained and certified to install and support the proposed solution)

3.  We can remove PRC certification number since the PRC requirement is waived.

4. That said ___________________ shall be personally present at the jobsite to supervise the phase of the works needed pertaining to this assignment as (Designation), all the time. 

·      Can we remove the “all the time”? Since· the proposed solution requires 24x7 offsite it’s a conflict between the requirements also we will handle 8x5 onsite support if any severity/problem occurs with the system that needs to have a stand by assistance.

4.  We can remove the presence of engineer all the time, however, the support in any form (txt, email, phone call, and messenger) should be available 24 x 7, or a temporary replacement of equipment should be immediately in place in order to avoid disruption of service until such time that  the problem is resolved.

B.  Queries of Powercraft Solutions & Data Infrastructure, Inc.

1.   Group700 and Group310 are pertaining to specific video conferencing brand, can we offer other brand that can also comply with your requirements?

1.   Yes, they can offer other brand as long as they can comply with the requirements and the product is not made from China.

2.   We would like to clarify if your requirement is 8-way Full HD (1080p) connection or 8-way SD (Standard Definition) connections since most of the available monitor screen in the market comes with at least Full HD (1080p) resolution?

2.   We do favor 8-way Full HD connection to be ready for our future big bandwidth capability.

3.   Does your system requirement include capability to schedule and send link invite to join in the conference?

3.   This capability can be an added additional feature by the supplier and acceptable to PAGASA.

4.   Do you allow China brand?

4.   We do not allow China brand.

5.   Do you allow, Cloud Solution for MCU?

5.   We do not allow Cloud solution for MCU.

This shall form an integral part of the Bid Documents.

This Bid Bulletin is being issued to all prospective bidders to clarify issue on the requirement of Tax Clearance, as raised during the Pre-bid Conference held on 06 July 2017:

Ø Executive Order No. 398 specifically requires the submission of Tax Clearance issued by the BIR which should be in form defined in Revenue Regulations 3-2005.  Hence, the submission of the BIR Official Receipt in lieu of the Tax Clearance requirement, cannot be considered in compliance with Sections 23.1 (a)(iii) and 24.1 (a)(iii) of the IRR of Republic Act No. 9184.  Since the Tax Clearance is now included as part of the Class “A” legal eligibility documents, its non-submission is a ground for ineligibility, and the eventual disqualification of the bidder.

B.       

Queries of West Point Engineering Supplies

PAGASA-BAC Answers

1.  When and what contracts are considered “similar” to the instant Project to the bid?

“A contract is considered similar to the Project to be bid if it involves goods and related services of the same nature and complexity as those which are subject of the public bidding concerned.” (p. 44, GPM Vol. 2)

In this instant Project to be bid, any contract undertaken by the prospective bidder involving the supply, delivery, installation, testing, integration and commissioning of similar equipment or instrument shall be considered.

2.  Please confirm if both servers and radio and equipment requires a Manufacturer’s Authorization Certificate.

Yes, both Servers and Radio Equipment must have a Manufacturer’s Authorization Certificate.


3.  On Item 8.1.3. Data Services Specifications

Winning bidder must support core data services such as storage creation, backup, restore, clone and move for multiple locations so that data services in Remote offices can be supported without needing to send resources onsite. Can you clarify this, does this mean DSE (Dedup Storage Engine – Cloud Based Deduplication) i.e. Amazon S3 cloud storage service or Azure?

 

Data Services - Creation, Backup, Restore, Clone and Move is not particularly related to DSE or any de-duplication techniques.  The intention of this requirement is for the client to have the ability to easily manipulate data stores (Create VM’s, Backup VM’s, Restore VM’s, Clone VM’s and Move VM’s)  in the form of virtual machines, such that creation of data stores can be executed on any remote locations from a single location (e.g. Ability to create, backup, restore, clone and move a VM on a server located in any FFWC to any FFWC and vice versa with the provision of internet connectivity). Remote offices/locations mean a remote PAGASA data center or PAGASA Flood Forecasting and Warning Centers.

4.  The system must support global inline data deduplication (dedup) and compression functions concurrently for all data. Data size should be optimized in 8K blocks or less to optimize data storage and improvement performance.  No additional CPU resources should be required for supporting these functions.  With this, can we clear if you want to have an Appliance that can do such 8K block compression? i.e. Dell EMC VNX or software OneFS? Can you please specify?

Inline De-duplication by definition in the Terms of Reference (TOR) is the capability of any proposed solution to reduce stored data by filtering unique information as it arrives on the system in real-time.  By this definition, we are looking any solution, preferably hardware-based, that can match unique data by at least 8KB blocks to filter enough duplicate that will be stored in hard-drive and achieve storage efficiency.

Addendum No. IB 2017-006-02

 Subject: “Supply, Delivery, Installation, Testing and Commissioning of Automatic Weather Stations”;  ABC Php63,639,439.00 / P.R. No. 2017-01-0082  (Ref. No. IB 2017-006)

This Bulletin is hereby issued to clarify, amend, and/or modify certain provisions in the bidding documents as a result of the Pre-bid Conference held on 20 April 2017 and to answer queries submitted in writing by prospective bidders, to wit::

A.    Queries of Integrated Energy           Systems & Resources, Inc. (IESRI)

PAGASA-BAC Answers

1)     Miniature Circuit Breaker and Surge Protection

Reference: Technical Specifications (Item F, 3.0 Power Supply Specifications).

Query: Given that these 2 devices are minor accessories, we believe that the make and model should not be specified.

Ø Other brands or models for these items that have equal or higher specifications than those stated in the Terms of Reference (TOR) are acceptable.

2)     Surge Protection

Reference: Technical Specifications (Item F, 3.0 Power Supply Specifications).

Query: The requested brand is Loan Track with model TK-LT240-15A-DIN2. The TK-LT250-15A-DIN2 is the closest matching model and is a 120-260VAC surge protection device.  As the AWS is connected to solar and battery rated at 12V, the TK-LT24-15A-DIN2 be more appropriate from the same manufacturer? Alternatively, perhaps the Bidder should propose an equivalent model.

Ø Other brands or models for these items that have equal or higher specifications than those stated in the TOR are also acceptable.

3)     Miniature Circuit Breaker

Reference: Technical Specifications (Item F, 3.0 Power Supply Specifications).

Query: The manufacturer “Amico US” cannot be located. The circuit breaker appears to be made by CHINT in China and is rated at 230/400VAC and not 400VDC. Are we able to offer a suitable specification with a different brand and model of circuit breaker? Eg 500VDC, 10Amp, 2 poles?


Ø Other brands or models for these items that have equal or higher specifications than those stated in the TOR are acceptable. However, only brands with UL, ANSI or ISO certification/ approval as standardization of the prescribed circuit breaker must be offered.


4)     Pressure Port or Static Pressure Head:

Reference: Technical Specifications (Item F, 1.0 Sensors).

Query: There is no requirement listed for a pressure port or static pressure head. Is this required? If not, what is the PAGASA standard requirement for the external port?


Ø The pressure sensor will be installed inside the cabinet with the hose protruding outside the cabinet. A static pressure head is not required.


5)     Surge Protection Unit (SPU) 09120

Reference: Technical Specifications (Item F, 1.0 Sensors).

Query: The wind Sensor Surge Protection Unit (SPU) model 09120 from RM Young is not available.  The standard model is the model 19120. Is this the required model? If not, please confirm model number requirement or functional specification.


Ø Wind Sensor Surge Protection Unit (SPU) Model 19120 will be required, instead of Model 09120.

6)     Surge Protection Unit (SPU) Mounting

Reference: Technical Specifications (Item G, General Notes (8))

Query: The SPU shall be “placed at the mounting bracket”. Please confirm that this mounting bracket refers to the Wind Sensor Mounting Bracket.


Ø Yes, the mounting bracket refers to the “wind sensor mounting bracket” where the SPU for wind sensor shall be mounted.

7)     LoggerNet Software Linux/Windows

Reference: Technical Specifications (Item 9, Collection Server and peripherals>Maintenance Laptop).

Query: The specification of the computer is for Windows 10, yet the LoggerNet requirement is for Linux version. Please confirm.


Ø The collection server will run on CentOS which will be configured by PAGASA while the maintenance laptops must run on two (2) OS, Linux and Windows. Since we already have LoggerNet on Windows, we will also need LoggerNet running on Linux. Hence, laptops with dual OS plus LoggerNet on Linux are required.

8)     Boot Strap Theme

Reference: Technical Specifications (Item 9 Collection Server and peripherals>Maintenance Laptop).

Query: Please clarify the requirement for Boot Strap Theme.


Ø Since PAGASA will be responsible for the development of the collection server system and improvement of the web server hosting AWS data, Boot Strap Theme software is needed for the development of the servers.

9)     Calibration Testing at the Instrument Development Research Unit (IDRU).

Reference: Technical Specifications (Item G, General Notes (1)).

Query: Randomly selected sensors shall be subjected to calibration tests.  Is the cost for this to be borne by the contractor or PAGASA


Ø Calibration testing fee shall be borne by the Contractor (winning bidder).

10)    PAGASA Standard Configurations

Reference: Technical Specifications (Item G, General Notes (2, 3, 4, 6)).

Query: Please confirm that the standard configurations and setting by PAGASA will be supplied to the contractor after award.


Ø The servers and data loggers shall be delivered initially to PAGASA Central Office for configuration by PAGASA then, the data loggers will be returned to the Contractor for installation to the sites. Wiring diagrams will also be provided prior to the start of installation at the sites.


11)    Real time Visualization

Reference: Technical Specifications (Item G, General Notes (25))

Query: Please clarify the meaning of this requirement. “Only PAGASA stations shall be provided with real-time visualization through existing PC’s for AWS observed data”


Ø PAGASA will provide the Contractor with the visualization software and will be oriented regarding the installation process of computers at the sites.  The contractor will also provide physical network connectivity between the AWSs and the PAGASA station PCs. However, only PAGASA stations shall be provided with the visualization system.


12)    Manufacturer’s Certificate.

Reference: Checklist of Requirement

Query: Please confirm which equipment requires a Manufacturer’s Authorization Certificate.  Given that the equipment is sourced from multiple different specified suppliers, this requirement will make it impossible to have a fair and competitive tender. It will be impossible for most potential bidders to obtain these certificates for all sensors and other equipment.


Ø Manufacturer’s Authorization Certificate will be required for sensors and data logger only.

 

 

13.   Wind Mast

Reference: Technical Specifications (Item F, Wind Mast)

Query: During the pre-bid conference a drawings was displayed showing the Mast and the material thickness of the various sections.  These thicknesses differ from the written specification. Please confirm which is required.


Ø The drawings shall prevail over the TOR.

14. Control Box

Reference: Technical Specifications (Item 5.0, Control Box)

Query: Is Paint Finish of RAL7035 instead of RAL7032, acceptable?


Ø RAL pertains to color palette only. Any color in the grayish shade is acceptable.

15. Documentary Requirement for JV

Reference: Checklist of Requirement

Query: Please advise the checklist of documents for bidders forming a JV with foreign partner.


Ø On Joint Venture requirements:

§ Each member of the Joint Venture shall submit the Legal documents under the eligibility requirements (GPPB NPM 018-2005). This is to ensure that all the parties in the Joint Venture have the requisite legal personality to conduct business.

§ The Government also recognizes the need to encourage small and medium businesses which are unable, either technically or financially, to carry out a business undertaking on its own, to solicit the assistance of capable or bigger businesses through an Joint Venture, thus, it is sufficient that the Technical Documents and the Financial documents under the eligibility requirements should be complied with by at least one of the members of the Joint Venture for purposes of determination of its eligibility (Ibid).

§ The Technical Proposal and Financial Proposal envelopes shall be submitted in the name of the joint venture by its authorized representative.

16. Calibration Testing

Reference: Technical Specifications (Item G. General Notes No. 1)

Query: Please confirm if the cost for calibration testing will be at the expense of the bidder.

Ø Pls. refer to our response in Query No. 9.


B.    Queries of State Alliance Enterprises, Inc.

PAGASA-BAC Answers

1.     Single Largest Contract (SLC) – If the Supply & Delivery of Radiosonde Transmitter is acceptable as an SLC since the Radiosonde Transmitter are use for Weather Monitoring and have sensors for Barometric, Relative Humidity & Wind Sensor, etc.

Ø Yes, it is considered as SLC that is similar in nature to the contract to be bid. 

2.     Manufacturer’s Authorization – Request to remove this requirement as part of the Technical Requirement, due to the AWS have several sensors and with different authorized distributor. The manufacturer will not issue this document if they already have existing exclusive distributor in the Philippines.  It will also be favourable in your agency if there will be more bidder to submit their tender offer.

Ø Manufacturer’s Authorization Certificate will be required for sensors and data logger only.

3.     Request for two (2) weeks extension of the bid opening for the preparation of our bid offer.

Ø Submission and Opening of Bid is rescheduled on 05 June 2017 (Ref. SBB - Addendum No. IB 2017-006-01

QUERY

REPLY

2.1   A Twenty Percent (20%) Down Payment against our Guarantee Bond.

This agency is guided by the 2016 Revised IRR of RA 9184 in the conduct of its bidding process. Item 4.5 of Annex “D” Contract Implementation Guidelines for the Procurement of Goods, Supplies and Materials, which states that “Upon submission of an irrevocable letter of credit or bank guarantee issued by a Universal or Commercial Bank, advance payment not to exceed fifteen percent (15%) of the contract amount shall be allowed and paid within sixty (60) calendar days from signing of the contract. xxx”

§ Request for a 20% down payment against the Guarantee Bond is therefore, not allowed.

2.2   Instead of two (2) years Retention Money our company will issue a Surety Bond.

Sec. 62 (62.1) of the 2016 Revised IRR of RA 9184 states that “The obligation for the warranty shall be covered by either retention money in an amount equivalent to at least one percent (1%) of every progress payment, or a special bank guarantee equivalent to at least one percent (1%) of the total contract price. xxx”

§ Request for the submission of a Surety Bond is not acceptable.


2.3   End-user (PAGASA) will shoulder the Duties and Taxes.

§ As far as the Purchase Requests are concerned (P.R. Nos. 16-0885 & 16-0886), the Approved Budget for the Contract (ABC) for the project is inclusive of all applicable import duties and taxes.  It is not within the jurisdiction of the BAC to amend or modify the herein approved ABC.
