Calls for Tender are procedures applied to generate offers from companies competing for works, supply or service contracts in the framework of public procurement. This section includes calls for tenders related to the ERCEA activities.

Calls for Tender, contract awards and pre-information notices can also be found online on Tender Electronic Daily (TED), the electronic version of the supplement S to the Official Journal of the European Union.

The tender specifications published on this web page might exceptionally be complemented by an addendum/corrigendum. In such a case, this information will be published at the latest six days before the deadline for tender submission. You are therefore invited to consult the site regularly.
