In its dealings with external providers, the Bank is committed to respecting the fundamental EU principles regarding public procurement, such as the principles of equal treatment, non-discrimination and transparency. The Bank considers that, as a general rule, these principles can be best implemented by competition among qualified tenderers and by a selection based both on cost and quality considerations.
Technical assistance operations are subject to a tendering procedure. Participation in the tender is open to all natural and legal persons. If the financing is exclusively provided by the European Commission, participation is restricted to natural and legal persons in the Member States of the European Union and partner countries from the region covered by the financial regulation.
