Question details
HOME/2019/ISFX/PR/AUDI/0001 - Clarification question
We have noted the experience requirement that we have two audit specialists in public complex procurement procedures and one audit specialist in International organisations respectively. In that respect it then appears, from the way the experience requirements for each are presented, that all 3 experts must have a certification or a university degree in the field of procurement. Can you confirm whether: • This particular requirement is absolutely correct and necessary for the designated specialist in International Organisations? • In the case of the specialists in procurement, it would be acceptable to include experts with at least 5 years evident experience in this area, even though they do not possess a formal qualification such as a University degree or other Certificate?
The requirement is amended. The corrigendum of the reviewed technical specifications will be uploaded on eTendering. The reviewed requirement is the following: “At least two audit specialists in complex public procurement procedures and one audit specialist in international organisations - Staff Category 2 Be an audit specialist who shall have: - at least five years professional experience in the audit/verification/consulting of public procurement procedures or in international organisations respectively; - shall have an excellent command of English (at least CEFR Proficient user C1); - University degree in the field of economics, laws, finance, international relations or equivalent field."
