Guidelines on amendments to FP6 contracts

Funded under: FP6


The process for making amendments to FP6 contracts is rather different from that you may have been used to under FP5 projects. This note provides the basic principles followed for all instruments. It deals mainly with two principal questions, the form of the amendment and the process for approval (explicit or tacit). It explains the general rule in points 1 and 2 followed by the exceptions and special cases in the remaining points. It includes model letters and explanations for using them. Although contracts with a single contractor are treated more simply the basic principles apply to them too.
This document concerns the model contract adopted by Commission Decision C(2003)799 of 17 March and modified by Decision Commission C(2003)3834 of 23 October 2003 as well as the model contracts for human resources and mobility (HRM) actions adopted by Commission Decision C(2003)2567 of 18 July 2003 and the modifications made to them by Commission Decisions C(2003)3834 of 23 October 2003 and C(2004) XX dated 29 April 2004.
Amendments to contracts under FP6 must be in writing and requested by the coordinator on behalf of the consortium or proposed by the Commission. The Commission's approval of requests from the consortium can be tacit or explicit.
