This document contains guidance material to enable NMHS to procure all, or components of an Automatic Weather Stations Network.

The generic Automatic Weather Station (AWS) Tender Specifications is a set of documents intended to support the tendering for AWSs. They are based on and are in line with the WMO guidance documentation and are neutral with respect to manufacturers. WMO Members are invited to use them as a base for their tendering processes, and amend them as needed, to fit their needs and their own 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, and then finalized in close collaboration between WMO and HMEI.
