Services for Implementation of External Aid is the name of the new EuropeAid framework contract, also known as FWC, valid from June 2018 to May 2020. For some, the FWC is a flexible tool to provide short-term technical assistance to countries in need while for others, it’s a way to externalize the management of EuropeAid funds.

The tendering process started with a tender call in July 2017 and closed in October 2017 after two deadline extensions — likely so that the European Commission had time to answer the 600 questions submitted for clarification purposes. Finally, partial information on the framework contractors has been released this week.
