EURES is a co-operation network between the European Commission, Public Employment Services (PES) of the EU and EEA Member States, Switzerland, and their partners.

II.2.4)Description of the procurement:

The purpose of this call is to set up a Framework Contract to assist the European Commission to provide horizontal support to the EURES network and thereby to improve the EURES services on the ground throughout the Union in line with the EURES legal basis.

The EURES network is built on a decentralised approach where the provision of services to end users is carried out at the national and regional / local level by the EURES partners. The services to be provided are therefore largely focused on providing support and assistance for the benefit of the members of the network, while ensuring that the overall strategies of the European Union on intra-labour mobility, employment policy and communication are fully taken into account.
