The present call for tender covers the organisation and implementation of training activities on the organic farming scheme.

The objectives of the training activities are:

  • To further improve the knowledge of the control requirements;
  • By bringing together participants from different Member States, to allow the exchange of experience and disseminate best practices for control activities and procedures.

The contractor will organise and implement 14 three-day training courses in three or more appropriate EU locations to be selected by the contractor, geographically equally distributed among the different EU Member States.

It is envisaged that the service contract will be implemented in two phases each for a 24-month duration. The initiation of the second phase is subject to EU budget availability, persistence of the training need, positive analysis and approval of the Final Technical Report that needs to be submitted by the Contractor to the contracting authority at the end of the first phase.

During the first phase, the attendance should be approximately 30 participants for each training session (14 training sessions in total), with an expected global number of 425 participants for the training programme. The same training programme must be implemented during the second phase of the contract.

The courses will be offered to participants from competent authorities of EU Member States and non-EU countries.
