A ‘framework contract’ is a large multi-year umbrella agreement under which multiple specific requests or studies are being launched or tendered over its duration.
Since 2000, ADE has led or participated in numerous Framework Contract Agreements for major institutions and in different fields. Our leadership skills in the management of large consortia and our collaboration with partners are widely recognised.
Framework Contract Agreements are conducted for different Directorates General of the European Commission (DG INTPA -formerly DEVCO-, NEAR, ECHO, AGRI, HOME, HEALTH & FOOD, COMP) and for other clients such as the World Food Programme, Enabel (Belgian Development Agency), the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and RVO Netherlands.
ADE has track record success in the overall management of framework contracts (FWCs). This includes coordination with partners for the submission of numerous offers, expert selection, proposal writing, contract management, project monitoring, back-office support, and quality assurance.
ADE also implements a range of specific projects within the FWCs, relying on both our in-house staff and freelance experts.
