The Commission of the European Communities calls for tenders concerning financial audits of cost-sharing contracts in the field of research. Directorates-General involved in this call comprise: Transport (DG VII/A/4); Science, Research and Development (DG XII/B/2); Telecommunications, Information Industries and Innovation (DG XIII/E/1); Energy (DG XVII/01). The Commission aims to conclude framework contracts with up to four organizations which could undertake audits of monies spent in operational programmes, mainly carried out in the form of cost-sharing contracts in which the Commission participates on a percentage basis and in which the other costs of the projects are born by the contractors. It is most important that the organizations submitting tenders are represented in every country of the European Community. Other necessary conditions include the appointment of a coordinator, who will have the legal capacity to conclude the individual contracts with the Commission on behalf of the organization's representatives at a national level. The daily rate proposed will be one of the main criteria of selection. This rate should be differentiated per country and per category of staff. Experience in financial auditing, particularly in cost and project accounting, will also be a criterion.Full documentation concerning procedural requirements and evaluation criteria may be obtained on written request from: Commission of the European Communities DG XII/B/2 Attn.
