This procurement is exempted from the WTO Government Procurement Agreement (GPA), the EU public procurement directives and the national laws that implement them. This is because it concerns the procurement of R&D services where the benefits do not accrue exclusively to the contracting authority for its use in the conduct of its own affairs.
Publication of this contract notice in the EU Official Journal is not to be understood as a waiver of this exemption. Publication is made on a voluntary basis and the procurement, and the procurement will not follow the procedures under the EU public procurement directives, but rather the procedure described in the tender documentation.
The open procedure was chosen in Section IV.1.1) ‘Procedure’ for formal reasons only. This is because it is not possible to publish a contract notice without selecting one of the listed procedures.
All offers must be provided in French and in English, except for the technical aspects of the submission (Technical Offer) which may be submitted in English only. All communication before, during and after the procurement shall be carried out in English.
