Generic Automatic Weather Station (AWS) Tender Specifications are now published

Generic Automatic Weather Station (AWS) Tender Specifications is a set of documents intended to support the tendering process for AWSs. It aims at guiding NMHS and other stakeholders to ensure their requirements align with international best practice, and helping equipment vendors to provide required instrument specifications. Generic AWS Tender Specifications are based on WMO guidance documentation and are neutral with respect to manufacturers. They can be used as a base for tendering processes and amended as needed to fit needs and tendering process regulations.

This set of documents was initially developed by the Association of Hydro-Meteorological Equipment Industry (HMEI), with support from the World Bank. The document was finalized recently, in close collaboration of WMO and HMEI experts.

The Generic AWS Tender Specifications were published as IOM-Report No. 136 and are available here.
