Congratulations!!! Your Consortium Coordinator has received a letter from the designated Project Officer inviting him on behalf of the consortium to enter into negotiations on a contract.
What happens now?
The rules and procedures for this stage are clearly laid out and documented. This stage is extremely important as, handled properly, it allows you to modify your proposal and even change the consortium, funding and coordinator under certain circumstances.
With the letter from the designated Project Officer to the Co-ordinator inviting him on behalf of the consortium to enter into negotiations on a contract, the coordinator will receive a package of material and a timetable for the negotiations. Several dates will be suggested for meetings in Brussels or Luxembourg to initiate the negotiations.
During Contract Negotiations the following main issues have to be addressed:
• Description Of Work
• Contract Preparation Forms
• Consortium Agreement
