Section I: Contracting authority
Main address: http://ec.europa.eu/environment/funding/calls_en.htm
Section II: Object
A peer-to-peer support process to facilitate improved Water Framework Directive and Floods Directive implementation.
This contract is launched to facilitate a voluntary peer-to-peer process to contribute in the progress and development of river basin management plans across the EU. The aim is to select a contractor to act as Secretariat, and allow interested Member States (MS) to participate in the exercise on a voluntary basis. The objective is to adapt already available tools, launch a call for interested river basin authorities and experts and carry out the matching process to facilitate technical exchanges and missions.
The overall goal is to provide an additional tool to water authorities to share existing doubts or concerns related to water planning and river basin management plans development, and obtain views and recommendations from experts. The possibility of exchanging views with independent experts could provide the opportunity to receive technical answers, share experiences and uncertainties and gain knowledge on used methodologies across MS.
Single service contract for 24 months.
