Section VI: Complementary information

VI.3)Additional information:

The EU has given a grant for this procurement but is not participating as a contracting authority in it.

The procurement is exempted from the WTO Government Procurement Agreement (GPA), the EU public procurement directives and the national laws that implement them. This is because it concerns the procurement of R&D services where the benefits do not accrue exclusively to the contracting authority for its use in the conduct of its own affairs. Publication of this notice in the EU Official Journal is not to be understood as a waiver of this exemption. It is made on a voluntary basis and the procurement will not follow the procedures under the EU public procurement directives, but rather the procedure described in the tender documentation.

The open procedure was chosen in Section IV.1.1 ‘Procedure’ for formal reasons only. This is because it is not possible to publish a contract award notice without selecting one of the listed procedures.
