This call for tenders is therefore being launched as an interinstitutional procurement, with the European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training (‘Cedefop’) as ‘Leading Contracting Authority’ and Eurostat as ‘Participating Contracting authority’. This procurement procedure shall lead to the signature of a single framework contract signed by Cedefop on its behalf and behalf of Eurostat. Both institutions shall assume joint and several liability towards the contractor for meeting their obligations resulting from the contract (signature of Order Forms and/or Specific Contracts and invoicing). The objective of this call is to maintain and develop further the DPS developed under the 2017-2020 project and translate it into continuous and uninterrupted data flow and subsequent analysis. Currently, the DPS covers all EU Member States and the United Kingdom. To provide data beyond current EU, it is required that the system will be extended to cover all countries of European Statistical System (ESS).

Thus, the works also include the exploration of other web data, building on the experience obtained with online job advertisements.
