Question details
About the Supporting Expert
Section 1.3.2 of the Tender Specifications says: “To ensure continuity and efficiency any Supporting Expert shall be able to work at the EEA for a period of minimum six consecutive months.” Is the contractor supposed to provide the service for just six months, or for a longer period, e.g. 12 months? This is key to estimate the cost of the service. And when this service will be provided during the 24-months of the contract? E.g. during the first six months of the contract, etc. This is important to plan the service.
The future contractor must provide the service of a Supporting Expert from no later than 2 months after the entry into force of the contract and until its expiry, so in total between 22 and 24 months. Each individual candidate proposed must be able to work at the EEA for a minimum consecutive period of 6 months.
