FRAMEWORK CONTRACT PROVISION OF TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE, TRAINING AND ORGANISATION OF CONFERENCES, SEMINARS & WORKSHOPS ON THE NEIGHBOURHOOD POLICY
Provision of support specialised services in areas of specific expertise. This support is a key instrument to ensure efficiency, performance and impact of all activities related to ENP implementation.
Technical assistance under this contract should serve as a tool to facilitate the implementation of ENP and may be delivered by, for example, the provision of training, upgrading the technical know-how and skills of persons/organisations involved in or having an impact on the process; exchange of best practices, techniques, know-how etc.
The specific objective of this Framework Contract is to provide the European Commission and its development partners with timely and flexible access to high quality technical experts in all ENP areas. To be effective, high calibre specialists are needed in the identification, development and delivery of programmes inherent to ENP implementation. Experience has shown that it is often difficult to access technical experts in a timely and efficient manner commensurate with needs and demands. It is expected that this Framework contract will provide an appropriate mechanism to assist the delivery of ENP in all concerned geographical regions.
