Service Contract
Would the European Commission accept an alternative payment profile to Article I.4 based on our proposed methodology with monthly invoices according to percentage completion of certain milestones? The current payment profile is likely to lead to an undesirable situation where payment could occur 1.5 years or more after carrying out some tasks. Therefore we would like to propose a more frequent payment schedule. If this is not acceptable please could the European Commission clarify why not?
The payment schedule has been calculated according to the expected timeline of the project. A payment of 25% is foreseen at month 12 with a further payment of 35% at month 21 upon acceptance of the two interim reports which is standard practice for service contracts of this type. A monthly payment schedule unfortunately cannot be accepted due to the burden on internal resources.
