Electronic submission (eSubmission) is mandatory for international open, restricted and negotiated procedures in direct management for tenders of EU External Actions DGs since March 2022. This means that paper submissions are no longer applicable for these procedures. Before submitting their application online via eSubmission, the tenderer (the leader and all the members in case of consortium) must first register in the Funding & Tenders Portal (OPSYS ecosystem) to obtain a 9-digit Participant Identification Code. If the leader and/or participant have already registered in the Participant Register and know their credentials, they can search for their PIC and use it when submitting tenders or requests to participate in eSubmission, otherwise they will need to register their entity in the Funding & Tenders Portal.
In the course of the procedure, tenderers (including consortium members) may be contacted by European Research Executive Agency (REA) validation services and requested to submit documents. Based on these documents their PIC will be validated once and for all. The validated PIC will then allow tenderers to subscribe to any future call, as well as to manage their contract(s) electronically in the Funding & Tenders Portal.
In this context, tenderers, Contractors and Experts would find it valuable to attend the proposed awareness webinar in English and Spanish via Webex.
