Question details
Study to assess the benefits delivered through the enforcement of EU environmental legislation - Scope of the study
We have two questions related to the scope of the study: 1) The ToR specifies the following on p.18: "3. The contractor shall select [...] the most relevant ones (in the range of a hundred bad application cases, about sixty non-communication cases and about eighty non-conformity cases) [...]” This means a total of around 240 cases. Does the detailed analysis described in points 4 to 7 needs to be performed on each of these cases? Following the resources given for this call, this would indicate a very limited time per case and thus a rather rough analysis? Would we still interprete the ToR correctly if we select 240 cases that cover the same type of infringement in different Member States, and focus the required analysis to a subselection of representative examples. For instance, can a specific type of infringement which is similar in 3 countries be analysed as one case instead of 3 cases? 2) Do we understand the ToR correctly that only infringements in EU-15 need to be selected and analysed? Thank you very much.

We confirm that the detailed analysis described in points 4 to 7 at page 18 needs to be performed for each of the cases selected under point 3. The selected cases under point 3 (about 240) should cover infringements of the Directives specified under point 1 and should include bad application cases, non-communication cases and non-conformity cases. Interpreting the ToR in the way you propose (performing the analysis only with reference to a sub-selection of representative cases) would not be acceptable. As regards to your second question, the answer is yes. Only infringements in EU-15 need to be selected and analysed.
