Open Tender Procedure

The Aquaculture Advisory Council (AAC) must sign a new contract for secretariat services for a period of up to 3 years. The duration of this contract would be from 1 November 2020 until 31 October 2023.   The awarding of the contract will, among other things, depend on the renewal of the Specific Agreement signed with the European Commission on an operating grant. Applications from organisations based in all member states are welcome but a Brussels based secretariat would be an advantage.


The European Commission’s Financial Regulations require that any contracts in excess of €15, 000 must comply with public procurement rules. As such, a tendering process has been initiated. The tasks to be fulfilled by the secretariat are detailed in annex A to the call for tenders' offer.
