The TACIS programme is an EU initiative for the New Independent States and Mongolia which fosters the development of harmonious and prosperous economic and political links between the EU and these partner countries. TACIS does this by providing know-how and grant finance to support projects in a variety of fields, including energy, transport and telecommunications infrastructures, nuclear safety, the environment, food production, processing and distribution, and social services and education. To further increase understanding and knowledge of the TACIS programme and its areas of activity, the Commission has recently produced the following publications: - "What is TACIS?" This publication acts as a general and explanatory guide to the programme, outlining its areas of partnership and cooperation, its partner needs, priority sectors, techniques, action programmes, and organization and management. - "How to work with TACIS" Aimed at public and private organizations seeking to obtain TACIS contracts, this publication explains the rules, processes and procedures which lead to the award of TACIS services and supply contracts. - "Contract Information Update No 3: April 1995" This publication provides an update of the TACIS Contract Information booklets which contain information about projects from TACIS action programmes for which the Commission organizes restricted invitations to tender. - "TACIS Annual Report 1993" The Annual Report reviews the work carried out under TACIS during 1993 with regard to the sectoral programmes in the fields of enterprise support services, agriculture and food distribution, human resources development, and networks for energy, transport, telecommunications and nuclear safety. It also covers TACIS activities in the fields of the environment, humanitarian aid, information, and multi-country programmes. Finally, it outlines the legal and operational aspects of the programme in 1993.
