Luxembourg-Luxembourg: Editorial Services for the EIB
Section I: Contracting authority
Section II: Object
Editorial Services for the EIB
The EIB launches a call for tender (open procedure) to conclude a multi-provider framework agreement (FWA) with multiple service providers specialised in editorial services for the EIB. The new multi-provider framework agreement will cover a full range of editorial services, including content grading and reviewing, developmental editing, copyediting, proofing and content creation.
The EIB will select service providers in order to provide the following editorial services:
(a) developmental editing,
(d) reviewing and grading.
These services must accommodate all EIB technical specifications, including:
— the EIB Style Guide,
— intended publication word count,
— intended target audience,
— checking the accuracy and consistency of the content and ensuring internal consistency throughout the work.
The Bank’s outputs may be drafted by several authors and by non-native English speakers. Therefore, an important task is to ensure a consistent writing style in English throughout the document.
Section III: Legal, economic, financial and technical information
Section IV: Procedure
Tenders will be opened in a non-public procedure. Upon written request to the EIB (see Section I.1)), the written record of the opening of tenders will be provided to economic operators who submitted a tender.
Section VI: Complementary information
In case of unavailability or disruptions in the functioning of the electronic means of communication provided in Section I.3) in the last five calendar days before the time limit for receipt indicated in Section IV.2.2), the European Investment Bank reserves:
(i) the right to extend this time limit;
(ii) to postpone the date and time of tender opening stated in Section IV.2.7) accordingly and publish these changes at the internet address provided in Section I.3), without a preceding publication of a corrigendum to this notice. Economic operators interested in this procurement are invited to subscribe to the call for tenders at the address in Section I.3) in order to get notified when new information or documents are published.
Tenderers may in the first instance submit any concerns regarding the procurement to the Bank using the contact details under Section I.1) of this contract notice.
If tenderers or other interested parties, believe that the EIB committed an instance of maladministration, (e.g. it has failed to act in accordance with its established policies, standards and procedures or to respect the principles of good administration), they may lodge a complaint to the EIB Group Complaints Mechanism (seehttps://www.eib.org/en/about/accountability/complaints/index.htm) within one year from the date when the alleged action, decision or omission by the Bank could be reasonably known by the complainant. If unhappy with the outcome, tenderers can seek a review of the EIB Group’s reply to the complaint by the European Ombudsman (see https://www.ombudsman.europa.eu).
Within two months of notification of the outcome of the procedure (award decision), tenderers may launch an action for its annulment and/or damages. Any request tenderers may make and any reply from the Bank or any complaint of maladministration, will have neither the purpose nor the effect of suspending the time-limit for launching an action for annulment nor open a new period for launching an action for annulment. The body responsible for hearing annulment procedures is indicated under Section VI.4.1) of this contract notice.
