More than €100 million ($109 million) has so far been allocated to contractors under EuropeAid’s “Services for the Implementation of External Aid 2018.”
SIEA 2018 is EuropeAid’s primary framework contract for development services. It is valid until May 2020, with a likely extension until 2022. Over the summer, EuropeAid announced which contractors had secured the first funds under the framework, in its first release of contract awards. The awards encompass 612 contracts, awarded between June 2018 and June 2019.
