Question details
Stakeholders and experts lists
A question regarding chapter 5.2.3 criterion 2.1 : What is really needed (page 38 of TOR): "This evidence refers to selection criterion 2.1 b) A list of stakeholders (in particular from industry, associations and research technology organisations) and contact points. This list shall be accompanied by written statements from at least 10 of the most relevant stakeholders listed;" WHAT is the statement they have to make ? Is is possible to publish a template to this regard ? "c) A list of ten experts who could be selected as members of the Steering Committee." Is this the same list as the above? This is especially important questions in the context of text on page 7 of TOR : "...based on a list of at least ten suitable candidates proposed by the tenderer to be included in its bid and the composition of the new High Level Group on KETs to be established in the autumn 2012." As we understand this, 10 experts shall express their willingness to join the HLG in case our offer is selected. if that is the case : Is this declaration to be exclusive or they may declare such willingness for more than one bidder ? And finally, in case of consortium: Is this list to be delivered by each of the consortium partners or one list for entire consortium ?

The question regards chapter 5.2.3. criterion 2.2. (and not criterion 2.1). The evidence refers to selection criterion 2.2. mentioned in chapter 5.2.1. In other words, the written statements mentioned in 5.2.3. b) refers to selection criterion 2.2. ("proven knowledge of and access to relevant experts and stakeholders to provide important inputs and a thorough review of issues described in the specifications"). We don't publish a template in this regard. The list of 10 (individual) experts who could be selected as members of the Steering Committee is different from the list of stakeholders (organisations). The experts could be selected as members of the Steering Committee (not for the new HLG). The evidences requested in 5.2.3. b) and c) can be delivered for the entire consortium. Stakeholders can provide writtten statements for more than one bidder.
