Call for Proposals: Support and Advice on Communication Activities of the European Commission
Brussels, Belgium, 27 October 2017
The objective of this call for expressions of interest is to set up a list of external experts for providing support and advice on communication activities of the European Commission. This external expertise does not replace but complements the available in-house strategic, corporate and operational capacity and services. The overall aim is to further enhance quality and impact of the Commission's communication and take into account latest developments.
Expressions of interest should be submitted in one of the official languages of the European Union by post to the address indicated at point 1. Interested experts may submit their expression of interest at any time prior to the last three months of validity of the list.
Inclusion on the list entails no obligation on the part of the contracting authority concerning the conclusion of contracts. Experts can require that their profile be removed from the list and the Contracting Authority can remove any profile from the list at any moment on condition either party notifies the other in writing.
Use of the list resulting from this notice
The list of eligible and competent external experts resulting from this notice will be used exclusively for advisory and support tasks related to communication activities of the European Commission within the fields described at point 7, with a maximum amount of €135 000 of total payment per expert including remunerations and reimbursements for the whole duration of the call for expressions of interest. The number of experts on this list is not limited. The Commission however reserves the right to choose those experts from the list who have the most appropriate profile in a given field when a specific support and advice need occurs. The Commission will strive for a balanced use of the list, for example by recommending a limitation of the number of billable days per expert and assignment, but does not guarantee that the support and advice of all experts on the list will be solicited.
