Belgium-Brussels: Mid-cap financing survey
Section I: Contracting authority
Section II: Object
Mid-cap financing survey.
The service consists in applying a survey on sources of financing for mid-cap companies, i.e. (i) run the actual survey where the sample of firms is already identified and the analytical tools are developed as part of the first phase of this study; (ii) apply the analytical tools developed during the first phase of this study in analysing the primary data obtained through the survey, including by matching it with secondary data on bank-level and firm-level characteristics.
The tasks to be executed consist mainly in:
1. designing the survey in accordance with response rate driven approach (as opposed to quota sampling methodology) and in such a way, so as to obtain a representative set of primary data from both treatment and control sample of firms;
2. running the survey on the sample provided to the contractor to obtain data on the EU NFCs' financing choices in line with the indicative methodology (see Section 3.4), which includes a proposed questionnaire;
3. performing statistical and econometric analysis to match the firm-level primary data obtained through the survey, on the one hand, with bank-level credit supply data and firm-level characteristics sourced from proprietary databases, on the other, in line with the proposed methodology;
4. reporting the findings in English.
