Procurement at the EUI
The European University Institute issues calls for tenders for the award of public contracts for goods, services and works which it needs for its operations.
Calls for tenders are designed and carried out in compliance with the EUI’s Public Procurement Regulation as outlined in the EUI President’s Decision N° 36/2016 of 4 August 2016 and High Council Decision N° 5/2014 of 5 December 2014 amending Title V of the EUI’s Financial Rules (High Council Decision N° 2/13). In this context, the basic principles of transparency, equal treatment , non-discrimination, widest competition, proportionality and sound financial management have to be respected.
Offers submitted in the context of a procurement procedure are called 'tenders'. An economic operator who has submitted a tender is referred to as a 'tenderer'. 'Calls for expression of interest' (CEI) are a way of establishing lists of potential suppliers, who may be invited to future tendering procedures.
There are several types of procurement procedures which the European University Institute may use to select contractors. The most commonly used procurement procedures used at Institute are open calls for tenders and negotiated procedures. It should be noted that according to the relevant public procurement rules, not all procurement calls are necessarily published.
Those calls for tenders that are subject to publication can be found in in this section of our website.
