Request for Proposals for Telescope Mount Released

GMTO has released a Request for Proposals (RFP) for the final design and construction of the telescope’s main structure (‘the telescope mount’).
The release of the RFP is the next stage in the process that began in mid-2016. In September 2016, GMTO held an Industry Briefing for interested parties which was attended by 19 companies from 9 countries. With the release of the RFP, qualified bidders have 3 months to return their proposal, after which an evaluation period will begin.
If you are a company interested in bidding, or teaming with a company that is bidding, and you have not yet submitted an Expression of Interest, you can still do so by requesting a form from rfp@gmto.org.
More information about the RFP process is available on GMTO website at http://www.gmto.org/rfp-information/.
