Interactive: Is the latest EuropeAid framework contract old wine in a new bottle?

EuropeAid’s new framework contract — or FWC, the European Union’s tool for procuring aid implementation service contracts worth up to almost €1 million ($1.15 million) — has just kicked in. There have been significant changes to the scope and structure of the tendering process since the previous FWC. The latest edition, known as “Services for Implementation of External Aid,” will last until May 2020, with a probable extension to 2022.

Some of the winning consortia have already been announced, as Devex reported, but there are still three lots (numbers 2, 4, and 5) for which only partial contract award data has been published, meaning new consortia in those lots might be announced in the near future. This analysis is based on the latest official data released by the European Commission. The next milestone of the FWC is the competition between the consortia themselves for awards of specific contracts — a fast-paced process, at times lasting just two weeks.
