The ECOS self-training manual has been developed to allow ECOS users to get familiar with software version ECOS 5.3. It is based on a series of hands-on exercises that will allow users to progressively get familiar with the most commonly used features of the application software.
After one day of training, users should be be able to:
- configure their own environment;
- enter all data related to financial offers and handled by ECOS;
- define and send ITT files to sub-contractors;
- select/integrate Tender files received from sub-contractors in order to prepare an Integrated Tender to be sent to the upper tier.
In addition to making this self-training manual available, ESA periodically organises on-site training courses at ESA/ESTEC in the Netherlands, free of charge.
Due to the coronavirus outbreak and meeting restrictions at ESA/ESTEC, on-site ECOS training sessions have been suspended until further notice.
