An information day for entities potentially interested in becoming the EU ETS Auction Monitor or in performing part of its tasks will be held in Brussels on 21 November 2012. The event is being organised in view of the planned joint procurement of an Auction Monitor by the Member States and the European Commission.
The main aims of the session are to:
All interested persons or entities which meet at least one of the criteria described in section II.4) of the Prior information notice referred to below (i.e. experience required for potential tenderers) are invited to attend the information day.
Given the fact that the functions of the auction monitor are novel in nature, the Commission and the Member States will be looking for transferable skills acquired in other analogous contexts.

Written input or questions to firstname.lastname@example.org are invited by 12 December 2012.
Pursuant to Article 24 of the Commission Regulation (EU) No 1031/2010 ("Auctioning Regulation"), the Commission and the Member States must appoint jointly an auction monitor.
The auction monitor will be entrusted with monitoring and reporting tasks provided for in Article 25 of the Auctioning Regulation; in particular, it will monitor the auctions taking place on the auction platforms, and report on the proper implementation of the auctions to the Commission on behalf of the Member States and to the Member States concerned.
The contract concluded with the single auction monitor will be a framework contract and have a duration of up to four years.
The estimated value of the framework contract is EUR 25 million.
A first procurement procedure for the appointment of the auction monitor (Contract Notice and documents annexed) was abandoned by the Commission, due to the fact that no applications were received (Non Award Notice.)
In order to raise awareness about the procurement of the auction monitor, a Prior information notice (PIN) was published in OJ/S 200 of 17 October 2012. The PIN does not constitute in itself a launch of a procurement procedure, and no documents are available at the moment. When the procedure is launched, the contract notice and related documents will be published on the tender page.
