Call for tender for an EU-wide monthly business survey in the financial services sector
ECFIN/2006/A3-01

The Commission has been carrying out its Programme of EU Business and Consumer Surveys for more than 40 years. Over time, the coverage of the surveys has been extended to most sectors of the economy. The financial services sector has, however, not yet been included in the regular survey programme.

Given the importance of the financial services sector for the development of the overall economy, the Commission contracted a pilot survey in the financial services sector on an EU-wide scale for a period of one year (ending in March 2007). After the evaluation and a positive assessment of the first results, the Commission decided to continue the survey and, therefore, launches a new Call for Tender.

Call for tender for study on economic resilience in the euro area ECFIN/C/2005/01

The objective of this study is to develop a more rigorous understanding of economic resilience and to generate fresh empirical evidence regarding its determinants. The study should explore alternative ways of measuring resilience within the euro area and other industrial economies and examine the welfare costs of having a comparatively low degree of resilience.

On the basis of this analysis, the study should empirically explore the determinants of economic resilience giving due regard to the impact of rigidities in product, labour and capital markets and the interaction between macroeconomic and structural policies. The overall results of this analysis should provide policy-relevant conclusions concerning the types of economic reform that are likely to bolster the euro area’s recovery from economic slowdowns and other disturbances.

Call for tenders for the establishment of framework contracts for the ex post evaluation of Macro-Financial Assistance (MFA) and operations of a similar nature in third countries

This call for tenders concerns the establishment of up to three framework contracts for the evaluation of MFA and similar operations, implemented in countries outside the EU25, primarily in the Balkans and the ex-Soviet Union. The evaluations will normally take place up to two years after the final disbursement has been made to the recipient country, though in some cases they may take place earlier when considered appropriate. The evaluations are therefore largely ex post in nature

The first framework contracts will be valid for a period of one year. At the end of each year, the Commission may extend the contracts for a further year. A maximum of three renewals of each contract is possible.

It is envisaged that up to three evaluations may be conducted in any particular year of the contracts at the demand of the DG for Economic and Financial Affairs. It is also possible that additional demands to use the contracts will be received from Directorates-General responsible for the implementation of similar instruments.

The annual budgetary envelope of the framework contract amounts to €400 000. There is, however, no assurance given on the volume, value and frequency of the evaluations. It is expected that the framework contracts will be signed in the first half of 2005.

2004

Call for tenders for data supply services (Economic and Financial) ECFIN/A/2004/003 (OJ EU S 225 dated 18/11/2004 and a corrigendum about an incorrect e-mail address in OJ EU S 230 dated 25/11/2004)

This call for tenders is for the supply of data on key economic and financial indicators for EU Member States and Accession countries as well as for third party countries.

To ensure the smooth functioning of Economic and Monetary Union, DG ECFIN's responsibilities focus on economic surveillance, monitoring of budgetary policy, public finances, economic policy coordination and forecasting, integration of EU capital markets, freedom of capital movements, economic relations with third countries and other important financing operations.

In order to assume these tasks, a comprehensive array of relevant, reliable and timely statistical information is required. Official economic statistical information on the EU is mainly produced through the European Statistical System, and it is conveniently accessible for users in DG ECFIN. However, as user requirements go far beyond the stock of public available data, supplementary information for various domains is necessary.

Only macroeconomics, financial (including intraday), and financial institutions data, are concerned by this call for tender.

There are four lots:

  • Lot 1 Macroeconomic data
  • Lot 2 Financial data
  • Lot 3 Data for Financial Risk Management
  • Lot 4 Data on currencies and short-term interest rates

Call for tender for Study on methods of analysis of the impact of state aid on competition ECFIN/E/2004/04 (OJ EU S 172 dated 03/09/2004)

The main aim of the study is to improve the economic basis for analysing the impact on competition of state aid.

The study will construct an analytical framework for evaluating competition effects in terms of the impact on rivals (rent-stealing, foreclosure) and on consumer welfare, distinguishing between domestic effects and cross-border spillovers.

On this basis, it will define a set of criteria and indicators that can be used (a) to assess the importance of the impact of individual aid awards on competition, (b) as a starting point for developing some general rules that can be applied to aid schemes, where the identity of the beneficiaries is not known in advance, in order to limit the potential harm to competition and (c) to contribute to the development of a method for identifying state aids that are unlikely to have a significant impact.

Call for tender for study on assessing the factors of resilience of private consumption in the euro area. ECFIN/C/2004/02 (OJ S 157 of 13 August 2004)

The objective of this study is to identify and assess the factors of resilience in private consumption in the euro area during the latest downturn. This will require a careful analysis of differences in the performance of household spending both across euro-area Member States and between the euro area and some other advanced economies such as the UK and the USA.

  • The study will aim at identifying the respective roles of macroeconomic policies, wealth effects and structural factors in explaining country differences along these two dimensions in the past few years.
  • In particular, a critical part of the analysis will consist in evaluating the incidence of possible confidence effects linked to the increasing awareness of the consequences of demographic ageing, to strained public finances in some Member States and to the speed and the extent of the ongoing structural reform process.

Call for tender for a study on economic spillover and policy coordination in the euro zone. No ECFIN/C/2004/01 (2004/S 146-29-07/2004)

Article 99 of the Treaty calls on Member States to treat their economic policies as a matter of common concern and to coordinate them. Economic theory is in broad agreement that policy coordination offers a means to eliminate harmful spillover and promote stability-oriented macroeconomic policy and structural reform in factor and product markets.

The main objective of the study is to provide plausible estimates

  • of the magnitude of economic spillover and
  • the impact of economic policy coordination on economic performance in the euro area.

The first half of the study will focus on the comparative importance of different types of budgetary spillover. The second half will examine the benefits of stability-oriented macroeconomic policy and structural reform in capital, labour and product markets.

Call for tender for the evaluation of the Broad Economic Policy Guidelines (2004/S 116-097190)

This call for tenders concerns the evaluation of the Broad Economic Policy Guidelines, the key instrument for coordinating the economic policies of the Member States and the European Community. The evaluation will produce information that is complementary to information emanating from existing reporting mechanisms by examining:

  • (i) the effects of the BEPG process on policy makers and institutional actors and the development and implementation of policy reforms in Member States, including on government ministries, the national central bank, national parliaments and the social partners;
  • (ii) the BEPG process and its effects on EU economic policy coordination and policy making, including the Commission, Council and national representatives on EU committees;
  • (iii) the extent to which the BEPG's have played a coordinating role vis-à-vis other EU policy instruments in the context of contributing towards the implementation of the Lisbon Strategy, the proper functioning of EMU and the realisation of the Treaty objectives.

The results of the evaluation will be used to support organisational learning and improve the functioning of the BEPGs.

The Contract Notice for this call for tenders can be consulted in OJ S series No 116 of 16 June 2004.
