Call for Tender
NEN regularly carries out (European) standardisation or advisory projects for which we need external experts or partner organisations. In cases where the European Commission is (co)financing such a project, a public procurement procedure is often required for the selection of the external experts or partner organisations.
- Call for tender for E20/25 engine testing
- The work that this tender covers is to procure ethanol and gasoline product in sufficient quantity in order to subsequently blend fuels in line with a test fuel matrix provided. This is followed by storage of the master blends and supply a sub-set of sample bottles to pre-indicated labs to allow them to execute octane measurements. The master blends will be used for engine and emission tests using E20 and E25 type of bio-gasoline by CEN in Q2 2017.
Offers for provision of the testing and reporting are treated individually although consortium offers will also be considered. Tenders can be sent (by mail or e-mail) to the programme manager (email@example.com) as soon as possible, at the latest at 12 December 2016.

- Call for tender for the project on Lactobacillus, Enterococcus, Pediococcus, Bacillus and yeast in feed (M/521 project 2)
- As the envisaged project leader for the project of M/523 on probiotics, Mr Bertin with the support of FEFANA members, resigned from the job due to lack of cooperation from probiotics producers, a new call for tender needs to be launched. As there were also new insights on what techniques are appropriate and what the scope of the project should be, CEN/TC 327/WG 3 discussed the project in its meeting of 5 April 2016 in Prague and by correspondence. EC Sante has confirmed the updated project description.
You can find more information in the description of the project (Annex A) and the procedure for assessment of the offers (Annex B).
Reply to the tender may be provided by one organization (or one organization using subcontracts) addressing the entire project as specified in Annex A.
Offers for the work, including justification of the proposed technique(s) and the plausibility of sufficient laboratories willing and capable to participate in the collaborative trial(s), are welcomed by the CEN/TC 327 secretariat, firstname.lastname@example.org, by 5 december 2016.
This call is circulated in both the plenary CEN/TC 327 and its WG 3, and published on the websites of CEN and NEN.
NEN voert geregeld projecten uit op het gebied van (Europese) normalisatie of advies waarvoor de inzet van externe experts of partner organisaties nodig is. Waar de Europese Commissie (mede)financier is van deze projecten moet voor de selectie van deze experts of partner organisaties veelal een openbare aanbestedingsprocedure worden gevolgd.
