QUESTIONS Based on the Contract notice “Study on innovative projects financed by the ERDF and comparative thematic analyses” I would like to put following questions: 1. How many days it is calculated the following activities should consume: a) Presentation of the results and Methodological Report to Steering Committee b) Presentation of draft final report to the Steering Committee c) Presentation of final report to 50 desk officers (DG Regio) d) Dissemination of results What measures are required to be taken for the dissemination of results? 2. In the section 3, par. 1, page 5 there is stated: “To study about 60 available profiles of projects financed….” What will be the exact number of project which will be considered? In the section 3, par. 3 there is stated: “After agreement with DG Regio on a list of projects proposed by the Geographical Units and the Innovative Actions Unit, to visit projects for interviews and develop 60 detailed descriptions…” Does it mean that the list of previously analysed projects (see above Par. 1) will be changed and the new list will be approved? ANSWERS Thank you for your interest in the evaluation study on innovative projects we are launching. You will find below the answers to your questions. First question : it is up to the tenderer to propose a number of days to dedicate to each activity. I can inform you, however, that we would anticipate that Steering Group meetings in Brussels would take a half day each and that the seminar for desk officers about 2 hours. You will need to calculate the amount of time you need for preparation. I should point out that the activities you cite at 1c and 1d of your question are the same activity - dissemination of the results through the presentation of the report at a seminar of desk officers of DG Regio. Second question : the first batch of "about 60 available profiles of projects" (section 3, par.1) will be provided by DG REGIO, as these profiles have already been written internally. The 60 detailed descriptions refered to in section 3, par 3 are different projects which the tenderer will have to analyse : the exact number of projects to be analysed by the tenderer is therefore 60. QUESTIONS In Par. 3. Is under analysis of 60 projects meant 60 visits on-spot of the projects? ANSWER Yes that means 60 visits on spot of the projects.
