Procurement for services we need

Can you or your organisation provide the scientific, logistical or support services we need? We are looking for the best value for money services possible to help EFSA run smoothly and efficiently.

EFSA buys services and supplies through public procurement calls, in line with EU legislation and the basic principles of transparency, equal treatment and non-discrimination, widest competition, proportionality and sound financial management.

Calls for tenders above €140,000 are published on:

Calls for tenders above €15,000 to €140,000 are advertised in advance of their launch on the EFSA website.

The 2023 EFSA Scientific Cooperation plan for calls for tenders (procurement) and calls for proposals (grants) will be published here soon. In the meantime, please refer to this recording of the Information Session on Funding opportunities in the EFSA 2023 Work, recorded in 13/12/2022. Part 1 gives an overview of the partnership framework, including detailed information on procurement & grants. Part 2 provides short presentations on a number of partnership opportunities included in the EFSA 2023 work plan.
