Contracts and Grants

Public Contracts

The Commission uses public contracts to buy in goods and services - such as studies, technical assistance, consultancy, etc. - to support its own operations.

Calls for tender

Major commercial contracts are awarded by the Commission following publication of "calls for tender", inviting companies to compete for public contracts. Tenders are evaluated according to strict rules.
