Commission services have concluded a number of framework contracts with external organisations for specific services regularly required. Before launching a procurement procedure, you should check whether a framework contract already in force could be used to make the purchases you need.

The IRMs (Information Resources Managers) of each DG and their teams are the key contact people from DIGIT in this field. Contact them first if you want to make use of these contracts.

Services provided by the Publications Office
The Publications Office (OP) know–how is available to anyone requiring help and advice with publications projects (electronic and paper). OP uses framework contracts to produce publications together with external contractors. Directorates-General and institutions can submit a request for a publication which will be produced in-house or with the help of an external contractor. OP advises on technical specifications, helps plan, prepare and manage projects and ensure quality of the finished product, and ensures conformity with the rules governing the use of framework contracts and house style guides. OP has a number of such contracts which can be used to carry out multimedia and print publications projects.
