Annual Action Programmes (AAP) are financing decisions adopted by the European Commission, to reserve funds for regional and country-based external cooperation programmes and for the implementation of thematic programmes.
Grants are direct financial contributions from the EU budget or from the European Development Fund. They are used to implement projects or activities that relate to the EU's external aid programmes. Procurement procedures are launched to purchase a service, goods or work in exchange for remuneration. A procurement procedure leads to the conclusion of a public contract.
