    Description
    Objectives

    Structural Programme Loan (SPL) for the co-financing of EU Funds supporting investment schemes in Bulgaria during the programming period 2014-2020

    Environmental aspects
    Procurement

    Strategic Environmental Assessments are required by EU regulations for all Operational Programmes co-financed with EU funds, in compliance with the requirements of the EU SEA Directive 2001/42/EC. The project refers to a multi-sector multi-scheme operation classified as a Structural Programme Loan and some of the schemes are likely to fall under Annex I or Annex II of the 2011/92/EU Directive. Should any such scheme have a negative impact on an area forming part of the Natura 2000 network (falling under the Habitats Directive 92/43/EEC or Birds Directive 79/409/EEC), the Bank would require the promoters to act according to the provisions of the aforementioned Directives as transposed into the national law. All schemes must be implemented in compliance with the EU environmental legislation.

    The Bank will require the promoters to ensure that contracts for the implementation of the project have been/shall be tendered in accordance with the relevant applicable EU procurement legislation (Dir 2004/18/EEC/ or 2004/17/EEC and Dir 2007/66/EC), with publication of tender notices in the EU Official Journal, as and where appropriate.
