European Commission issued a new version of “Procurement And Grants for European Union external actions – A Practical Guide (PRAG)“ on 2 August 2018.
The version is available here: http://ec.europa.eu/europeaid/prag/document.do.
Please note that the new rules need to be applied in procurement procedures launched after 2 August 2018. It is important to remark that the thresholds of the procurement procedures did not change. In case of all procedures above the threshold of single tender, the new/modified annexes need to be applied. Concerning the documentation of single tender procedures, the changes affect only the section 2 of the Tender Form template, where only the number of the referred PraG chapters needed to be modified according to the structure of the new version of PraG (the Chapter 2.3.3 changed to 220.127.116.11 and the Chapter 2.4.14 changed to 2.5.6). These documents were updated and are available on this web page.
This practical guide on contract procedures for European Union external action (PRAG) provides practical assistance in preparing and implementing procurement and grant contracts in the field of external action – contracting authorities, on one hand, and tenderers, candidates, applicants and contractors, on the other hand.
