Question details
Security clearance
In Q&A #28 EEAS is referring to 5.2.” All staff proposed by the contractor must be eligible to obtain a personal security clearance (PSC) up to SECRET UE/EU SECRET or EU Member State equivalent at the date of signature of the specific contracts.” However not all profiles have in their profile description the requirement: Security Clearance A Personal Security Clearance of level "EU SECRET/SECRET EU" might be requested for this profile How do we understand this omission? Can we have non-eligible profiles e.g. in Proximity, Near-shore as they will not be at EEAS premises?

We confirm that, as stated in “Technical Specification, point 5.2 Security Clearance”, “All staff proposed by the contractor must be eligible to obtain a personal security clearance (PSC) up to SECRET UE/EU SECRET or EU Member State equivalent at the date of signature of the specific contracts.” This applies to all profiles (regardless of whether the profile description in “Annex 10: List of profiles” refers to Security Clearance or not) and all places of delivery (On site, Proximity and Near shore).
