The European Commission, DG XXI, has published an open call to tender for computer maintenance services relating to the TARIC project on the integrated Community tariff. TARIC is the integrated tariff of the European Community and is an acronym derived from the French "Tarif integre communautaire". TARIC includes customs measures for the European Economic Community (EEC), the European Atomic Energy Community (Euratom) and the European Coal and Steel Community (ECSC), and a supporting goods classification maintained in all Community languages. Most of the TARIC measures are tariff or non-tariff customs measures to support the import of goods (though not services). However, TARIC is progressively expanding to cover fiscal measures and exports. The work to be subcontracted is for: - Maintenance support (evolutional) for the TARIC 2 computerized production system; - Studies of the impact of upgrading the TARIC 2 technical environment. The contract is expected to start in November 1996, and should be completed within three years. Tenderers must demonstrate that they have sufficient experience and ability in the project field, as well as having sufficient linguistic competence in Community languages to carry out the project. A briefing, at which questions relating to the project will be answered, will be held on 26 July 1996 at 10.00 at Centre Albert Borschette, 36 rue Froissart, B-1040 Brussels. Requests for tender specifications, quoting reference DG XXI/96/CB-3018, and completed tenders, should be sent to: European Commission DG XXI - Customs union and indirect taxation Mrs. M.
