Abstract

The purpose of this document is to provide the guidelines of the Commission for the evaluation of proposals submitted in response to a call in the frame of the Preparatory Action on Security-related Research (PASR). The evaluation procedures will follow the principles laid down in the Communication on the Preparatory Action on Security-related Research, the Decision on the implementation of the Preparatory Action and the Decision on the Programme of Work 2005.
The processes for evaluating proposals submitted for funding by the PASR rest on a number of well-established principles:
(i) Transparency. In order to provide a clear framework for proposers and for evaluators, the evaluation and selection process must be clearly described and available to any interested party. In addition, adequate feedback must be provided to proposers on the outcome of the evaluation of their proposals.
(ii) Equality of treatment. All proposals shall be treated alike, irrespective of the identity of the proposers.
(iii) Impartiality. All proposals shall be treated impartially, on their merits.
(iv) Efficiency and speed. The procedures have been designed to be as rapid as possible, commensurate with maintaining the quality of the evaluation, appropriate use of public money and respecting the legal framework within which the preparatory action is managed.
The evaluation criteria will be based on quality: activities selected for funding must demonstrate a high potential to contribute tangible and demonstrable improvements in security, a high technical and managerial quality, and the potential to stimulate innovation and to build sustainable partnership in the context of the objectives of the PASR.
Any proposal which contravenes fundamental ethical principles may be excluded from being evaluated or selected at any time.
