Working with GFA in a framework


The EU Framework Contract (FWC) is a special tool put in place by EuropeAid Cooperation Office to facilitate the implementation of its external aid. Its overall objective is to provide fast-acting technical assistance, which can be mobilized at very short notice. The specific objective of the FWC is to provide, via individual assignments, the whole range of possible aid development services, from identification of EU aid support, to final evaluation, via specific implementation. Typically, the deadline to submit an offer for an individual assignment is very short (2 to 4 weeks) and mobilization of experts and teams takes place at short notice too. The duration of individual assignments ranges from a few weeks to three years, and we expect an increase in the individual budgets.

Since 2001, GFA has been involved in managing FWC contracts and gained a sound track record in the coordination and implementation of such projects and studies, either as Lead Company or as a Consortium Partner. Currently, GFA is an EU FW contractor in the following lots:

  • Lot 2: Infrastructure, sustainable growth and jobs
    Indicative budget over 4 years: € 155 m
    Role of GFA: consortium partner
  • Lot 3: Human Rights, Democracy and Peace

In the context of its FWC activities, GFA is continually looking for highly qualified, experienced and dedicated professionals with a varied mix of operational and technical skills in each of the afore-mentioned lots.
