The present framework contract aims to select a suitable structure that will support the Permanent Secretariat with the selection process, contracting and management of experts for the European Urban Initiative (for both Assessors and Experts). The deadline is 27th October 2022

The main tasks, common to the two profiles (Assessors and Experts), should be the following:

1. Selection of Assessors and Experts

  • Eligibility assessment of applications received (based on the criteria set out by the Permanent Secretariat) – please see below for more details
  • Support for the Permanent Secretariat in the quality assessment of applications received: organisation of online interviews with selected candidates (following shortlisting done by the Permanent Secretariat): contacting shortlisted candidates, setting-up dates and online interviews, communicating with the applicants regarding the selection process and answering their questions
  • Communicating final decision to candidates.

2. Contractual management of Assessors and Experts

Please note that, the Permanent Secretariat is responsible for preparing the scope, launching and publishing all Calls for Applicants (both types: for the composition of the pool of Experts and for the composition of the panels of Assessors) on its website and associated channels and the selected Contractor will not be involved in these tasks.

Assessors and Experts will apply by submitting an application form, a CV and (if required) other supporting documents confirming their knowledge, skills and experience. Selection process is composed of eligibility assessment (run solely by the Contractor) and quality assessment (run by the Permanent Secretariat with the support of the Contractor).
