Answer 2: Start with selecting your fields of expertise. For each selected field you will have to provide a short explanation of the experience you/your company/consortium has. Give references to the most relevant projects, studies, contract or events for the chosen field of expertise. If you made several projects, give at least 2 and no more than 5 most relevant items. You could provide for each project: the project title, the financing entity, the participation rate, the total budget of the project, a short project description and, if applicable, a website reference.
The maximum limit of characters is 4000 (more or less, one and half pages). This should be enough to provide a short description of the expertise for one selected field of expertise.
Answer 3: No. Regarding the CVs and the composition of the managerial staff, for each field of expertise, there should be at least 2 persons with knowledge in the field or at least a manager with X years of experience. This can be done by mentioning it at the CVs box, or in the CVs itself.
Answer 4: After a field of expertise has been selected you are required to complete two additional fields, one of which is called "CVs". In this field you should only introduce name and surname of the expert/s (with complete CV attached at the end of the application). Optional: give a reference number to each expert/s in order to simplify the search of the attached CVs at the end of the Standard Application Form (SAF).
Answer 5: Yes, if the person has experience in several fields of expertise.
Answer 6: For the Call for Expressions of Interest 2012-2015 you should provide all the requested documents mentioned in the Check list of the Standard Application Form (SAF). If you get invited to send a proposal for a restricted tender, you will have to provide all requested documents that are stated in the tender specifications of that specific tender.
Answer 7: Not at this point. As the C.E.I is used only for service contracts under Annex IIA to Directive 2004/18/EC worth less than an estimated 130 000 EUR, it is not necessary to provide evidences for the situations stated in Part B. After having printed the SAF you will only need to complete blank spaces (i.e. legal entity status, date) and sign the declaration.
Answer 8: The Commission provides funding to projects and initiatives that promote its policy priorities throughout the European Union and further afield. The Directorates General for the Environment & Climate Action make funding available through grants, open calls for tender and restricted calls for tender using the call for expression of interest (AMI list). For further details of each please see our Funding page.
The Call for Expression of Interest serves to create a list of candidates that will be used for restricted call for tenders. It will be used only for service contracts under Annex IIA to Directive 2004/18/EC, with a value of less than 130 000 EUR (this limit can change every two years). Each year, DG Environment and Climate Action, launch restricted calls for tender for a specific project with a fixed budget. Unlike a grant where your own project is funded, this is a project we propose and if selected from our AMI list, you are invited to submit an offer within the budget we set. Details of the requirements and budget for each call for tender are given in the specifications for that call.
Answer 9: See Answer Number 8 above for information on budget/funding.
Candidates interested to apply are invited to submit an application in accordance with the rules set out in the contract notice for the purpose specified. Please follow the rules set out in point 8 and 9 of the contract notice: 2012/S 21-033026Article 106 of the Financial Regulation states "participation in tendering procedures shall be open on equal terms to all natural and legal persons coming within the scope of the Treaties and to all natural and legal persons in a third country which has with the European Communities a special agreement in the field of public procurement under the conditions laid down in that agreement." This provision implies that suppliers established in third countries have the right to participate in tendering procedures if an international agreement in the field of public procurement grants them the right to do so.
