Studies on data-protection issues with regard to IDA programme

The European Commission, DG XV, has launched a call for tender for specialized legal studies on data-protection issues with regard to the Interchange of Data between Administrations in the European Union (IDA) programme.

The call involves three separate lots, as follows:

- Lot 1: Study on data protection and public access to official information:

In the context of the transborder, electronic interchange of data between public administrations, the divergence of national approaches to the principle of public access to official information poses specific risks for the individuals concerned with regard to the level of protection of their personal data in the different Member States. The study, while presenting a complete overview of the pertinent differences with regard to public access in the Member States, should analyse these data-protection risks and propose recommendations designed to minimize them without restricting the free flow of personal data between Member States;

- Lot 2: Study on data protection in the statistics sector:

The study will aim at presenting the new problems of protecting natural and legal persons with regard to data processing in the statistics sector, problems which are posed in particular by the circulation of information on networks;

- Lot 3: Study on compliance control:

The study should present an overview of the national measures taken or intended to be taken within the relevant administrations in order to ensure compliance with data-protection law and recommend elements for an effective system of compliance monitoring within the IDA projects. In doing so, the study should take fully into account the European Parliament and Council Directive on the protection of personal data and on the free movement of such data (95/46/EC).

Tenderers may apply for one, two or all three lots. The delivery deadlines for each lot are stipulated in the tender specifications.

Detailed tender specifications may be obtained from the European Commission.
