A corrigendum to the call has been published in the Supplement to the Official Journal of the European Union 2014/S 048-079564 of 8 March 2014:
The following documents are annexed to the call and form an integral part of it:
- Annex 1: Model contract for experts
- Annex 2: Code of conduct for experts
Please note that as from the beginning of March 2014 the Agency has switched to a fully electronic workflow for the management of expert contracts.
Hence, as a consequence of this, all exchanges with experts, including the conclusion of contracts for their appointment and any amendments thereto, shall be carried out in accordance with Article 287(4) of Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) N°1268/2012.
This also involves the use of a new model contract and annexes thereto instead of the order form and annexes thereto which were annexed to the call at the time of its publication on 14 September 2013.
We strongly invite you to carefully read the above corrigendum, as well as the new model contract and annexes thereto.
Please be also warned that the table presenting the information regarding the correlation between fees (450 €/day) and tasks to be performed which is to be found in the call notice under section 12.1 has been updated too (version of 25.03.2014).
