Single framework contract for the delivery of communication services on the EU response to the effects of the war in Ukraine. The communication services will cover strategy, consultancy, analysis and design, production and management. The framework contract will focus on the design of the strategy, the development of the creative concept, and the creation and production of the content of the campaign in the context of the EU response to the effects of Russia’s war against Ukraine (e.g. food supply, migration, humanitarian aid, energy prices and any other issues that could become relevant due to the conflict).
Furthermore, the framework contract will cover editorial services from drafting original messages and materials to the editing of existing materials, the adaptation of existing messages to target groups and translating of materials, as well services necessary for the design and production of graphic, audio-visual and online products.
Section IV: Procedure
The war in Ukraine represents a watershed moment for the EU. Russia’s unprecedented military attack on Ukraine that had fundamentally changed the geopolitical landscape with consequences on several sectors like defence, energy resources, food security, migration, humanitarian aid, and the economy. Consequently, the European Commission (EC) needs to adapt swiftly its communication activities. Without any delay the EU needs to communicate to Europeans about the effects of the war in Ukraine and its response to these effects (e.g. food supply, migration, humanitarian aid, energy prices and any other issues that could become relevant due to the conflict).
The EU needs to communicate to the citizens why it is important to accelerate the clean energy transition and increase Europe's energy independence from unreliable suppliers and volatile fossil fuels. The intent is to engage Europeans to participate in achieving these overall goals by launching a communication campaign before the end of the summer 2022 to inform citizens about why it is important to fight climate change and how they can contribute.
Delaying this communication campaign would unnecessarily delay the EU energy transition and the Europeans would be exposed to the volatility of the energy market for a longer period, in addition to which the EU would continue funding fossil fuels outside of Europe (e.g. in Russia).
The present case constitutes an instance of extreme urgency brought about by unforeseeable events not attributable to the contracting authority, and where it is not possible to comply with the time limits laid down in Points 24, 26 and 41 of Annex I to the FR.
Therefore, and limited to the period necessary to complete these communication activities, it is the view of the Commission, that an exceptional negotiated procedure pursuant to Article 164(1) (d) of the Financial Regulation can be launched based on Point 11.1 (c) of its Annex I.
