The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) invites organizations to bid for providing Software Engineering Consulting Services to the OGC Compliance Program. Interested organizations should respond to the Invitation To Tender (ITT). Responses close August 15th, 2021.

The certification process makes use of the OGC Validator tool (aka TEAM Engine), which enables software developers to test whether their products comply with OGC Standards. The Invitation to Tender (ITT) concerns the provision of consulting services in support of the OGC Compliance Program, including working on issues and improvements related to TEAM Engine and the Executable Test Suites that power it.

Further information on the required services, as well as instructions for bidders, are contained in the Invitation to Tender: Provision of Compliance Testing Software Engineering Consulting Services. The deadline for responding to the ITT is 22:00hrs UTC on August 15th, 2021.
