Question details
Request for clarification
The extension of the term for the project (more than double than the initial one) materially increases the activities to be undertaken by the contractor: the contractor shall potentially repeat the completeness and conformity check and integrate the translations – as well as all related quality assurance tasks – more than once for each MS. Do you consider an increase of the budget for the project? Regards

There is no change to the material scope of the project and hence no increase of the budget is deemed necessary. In both the initial technical specifications and in the updated version the Contractor is required to provide the reports on completeness (point 1.3.b) and compliance (point 1.3.c) for each Member State. Those reports are submitted only once and subsequently integrated in the draft final report. The draft final report and the final report have to include all reports for all Member States. The technical specifications was updated in order to take into account the fact that some Member States might not have transposed the Directive on the date of signature of the contract with the Contractor but might do so in the course of 2019 or early 2020.
