 II.1.5)
Short description of the contract or purchase(s):  
Developments in EEA tasks necessitate:
a) increasingly frequent use of statistical and probabilistic tools, especially in integration of spatial data; and
b) re-sampling of existing heterogeneous data sets, especially in the accounting of ecosystems and habitats.
The expertise currently available to the EEA, either through core staff or the European Topic Centres (ETCs), covers traditional application of statistics. However, this expertise is not sufficient to address the specific, complex and non-standard questions raised by spatial integration.
The purpose of the framework contract is to reinforce the EEA by providing specialised expertise in the following areas:
— in close cooperation with EEA project managers, identify and define relevant questions,
— suggest and rationalise sound statistical/probabilistic solutions to the defined question,
— suggest ways of implementing solutions, including proxy solutions, if the scientifically-backed solution cannot be implemented in a simple, practical or economical way,

Contracts may not be awarded to candidates or tenderers who, during the procurement procedure:

— editing of manuscripts for EEA reports in close collaboration with the EEA project manager responsible for the product. To get the messages across as effectively as possibly, texts have to be made readable and transparent.
Manuscripts are frequently drafted by more than one author, and by non-native English speakers. Important tasks for an editor are therefore to ensure good quality of the language — and a consistent writing style throughout the document.
— Language quality-control of material drafted by non-native English speakers of the communications team.
— Edit material for the web.

Information on framework agreement:  
Framework agreement with a single operator.

Duration of the framework agreement:

48 months.

 II.1.5)
Short description of the contract or purchase(s):  
EEA is looking to sign a framework agreement with a company/consortium to support this work in the areas of data collection, data analysis, assessment and reporting. Data collection is to a large extent handled via agreements with such organisations as Eurostat, OECD, UNECE, etc., but in many cases these data sets needs to be complemented with detailed national studies and case stories in order to provide a more comprehensive picture of the state of the environment, development directions and needs for policy. The consultant will therefore be asked to compile and extract relevant data from the central sources and from national studies into Excel sheets in preparation for analysis.
Data analysis and assessment entails converting data into relevant information on the drivers for development, pressures on the environment, state of the environment, impacts from transport and the response of society. The process requires a great deal of dialogue with the EEA project managers.
Reporting requires turning information into concise and relevant products (reports, fact sheets, presentations, briefings, etc.) with a strong focus on the recipients. EEA places a high emphasis on ensuring that products are adapted to the needs of users.

Information on framework agreement
 II.1.5)
Short description of the contract or purchase(s):  
The EEA is progressively implementing the tools capable of producing the data and outcomes required to produce environmental accounts. Regarding water issues, the EEA has installed the Nopolu Système 2 (developed by Beture-Cerec, group Jaakko Poyry) application to stepwise develop its spatial assimilation and integration platform. This application manages disaggregated and aggregated water-related data and catchment issues and produces among others the WIRQ (weighted index of river quality) that is the technical part of the river quality accounts, and is designed to constitute a platform that can contain or serve models.
The next step is to develop the calculation complements to the programme to build fragmentation data and aggregate as indexes. These complements must be considered as extensions of the current water quality accounts developments. This is because:
a) the existing facilities in handling and calculating hydrological data should not be duplicated; and
b) reservoirs are a key component of the resource accounts, currently implemented under Nopolu Système 2.
This call for tender comprises the description of the expected outcomes, the type of data that has to be manipulated and the relevant information about the Nopolu Système 2 platform which constitutes the basis of the expected development.
The development will be carried out by a consultant who will develop, adjust, check and install the 'ad hoc' calculation modules to the current platform.

Tenderers shall be excluded from participation in a procurement procedure if:
(a) they are bankrupt or being wound up, are having their affairs administered by the courts, have entered into an arrangement with creditors, have suspended business activities, are the subject of proceedings concerning those matters, or are in any analogous situation arising from a similar procedure provided for in national legislation or regulations;

(f) they have been convicted for an environmental offence in the exercise of their profession;
(g) following another procurement procedure or grant award procedure financed by the Community budget, they have been declared to be in serious breach of contract for failure to comply with their contractual obligations.
Tenderers must certify that they are not in 1 of the situations listed above.

Potential contractors might be requested, at a later stage, to certify that they are not in 1 of the situations listed above by providing:
i) for points (a), (b) and (e) a recent extract from the judicial record, or failing that, a recent equivalent document issued by a judicial or administrative authority in the country of origin or provenance showing that those requirements are satisfied must be provided;

Contracts may not be awarded to candidates or tenderers who, during the procurement procedure:

The tenderer should provide an identification sheet (Annex 2) duly filled out and signed, a copy of inscription in a trade register, where applicable, and a copy of inscription in VAT registers.

Title attributed to the contract by the contracting authority:  Study on Environmental Cross-Compliance Indicators in the context of the Farm Advisory System - CIFAS.


II.1.6)



Description/object of the contract: Based on provisions of Council Regulation (EC) No 1782/2003, Member States (MS) are required to define statutory management requirements and minimum standards for good agricultural and environmental condition for the implementation of cross-compliance ('cross-compliance requirements and standards'). The implementation of these requirements and standards is a challenging task that will be supported via farm advisory systems (articles 13 to 16 of Regulation 1782/2003), which Member States have to set up by 1.1.2007.
The general aim of the study is to help the building and the functioning of the above-mentioned farm advisory systems, by contributing to the development of suitable advisory tools, and particularly 'farm level indicators' related to cross-compliance requirements and standards in the area of the environment.
The CIFAS study is financed by the European Commission and managed and coordinated by the EEA.
It will result in 1) a database compiling requirements and standards and other relevant information on the cross-compliance requirements in the domain of the environment, 2) an inventory of the farm advisory tools and systems developed or under development to help farmers meeting these requirements and standards and 3) recommendations concerning farm advisory tools in the domain of the environment relevant to cross compliance.
The aims of the consultancy work are to identify best practices among the farm advisory tools already developed in EU Member States and to prepare proposals for farm advisory tools (based on farm and land management models related to large region and farming system types) that, together with the best practices identified, could be elements to be included in a non-exhaustive guidance for the farm advisory systems to be set up by Member States.
The advisory tools to be developed under the CIFAS study should help with the:
  • identification of current land and farm management practices used by the farmer and relevant for environmental requirements and standards;
  • assessment of the level of achievement of environmental cross-compliance requirements and standards applicable to the farmer concerned;
  • identification of farm practices, which can help to achieve cross-compliance.
To fulfil the aims of the consultancy work, the successful tenderer will collect relevant information about:
  • cross-compliance requirements and standards in the area of the environment, as defined by the EU Member States;
  • environmental farm advisory systems already in place or under development in the EU Member States;
  • farm level indicators and other advisory tools already developed or under development at Member State, regional or local level;
  • the key characteristics of regional farming systems and farm structures in selected Member States.
  • The support required from the successful tenderer is split up into eight different tasks. All written project outputs have to be provided in English.

Description/object of the contract:  Description of the contract:
Description of the project

The aim of this feasibility study is to explore the availability of suitable models to predict environmental concentrations of chemicals from point source emission data such as the data reported to EPER, the European Pollutant Emission Register, and develop a strategy how these can be used to assess the chemical burden of Europe's environment.

Purpose of call for Tender
Develop a toolbox of available methodologies and a workplan for applying relevant models to substances reported under EPER in order to predict the concentrations, composition and distribution of these chemicals in the European environment.
The main task in this feasibility study will be to
1) evaluate
  • Which of the available methods to model environmental concentrations of chemicals in the different media are sufficiently validated and accepted to be used in a policy context.
  • Which of the models are suitable for all or some of the substances listed under EPER and other types of compounds.
2) make a test run and
3) develop a strategic proposal how these models and derived data can be used to estimate and predict the concentrations, composition and distribution of chemicals in the European and wider environment based on European emission data.

Tasks
The tenderer will provide in his offer a proposal for a detailed work plan for each identified task.

The tasks to be performed are:
1. Identify available models on chemical substances concentrations in the different media and/or their impacts. The evaluation shall cover models to predict concentrations in air, water, sediment and soil as well as biota (excl. food). International and national developments should be considered as well as research activities especially those concerning persistent substances or substances with a potential for long-range transport, or activities covering large rivers or other areas which might be representative for particular European regions.
2. 2. Verify their status of validation and general acceptance.
3. Evaluate available environmental models, preferably validated or widely accepted models, for their ability to provide information on spatial distribution of chemicals and resulting concentrations in different environmental media. Although the main target is Europe, regions outside Europe that will be impacted by European emissions should be included in the assessment.
4. Scan the models and provide information on the time and spatial scale they are able to cover. Provide expert judgement on the resolution needed for assessments of (pan)European, national, regional or local pollution. Describe model characteristics relevant for each of these levels.
5. Identify which of the above models are applicable to EPER substances.
6. Run one ore more selected readily available models for one or more test substances by using the reported release data in the EPER database. In selection of the test substance(s) consider the availability of monitoring data on the compound(s) as a key requirement.
  • Map the concentrations
  • Identify hot spots of predicted high chemicals concentrations
  • Assess usefulness of EPER data format for this purpose. For substances already covered by EMEP: discuss the added value by using EPER data for high and smaller resolution assessments. Will EPER data increase the usefulness of existing models on (pan)European, regional, or local level?
  • Compare predicted levels with actual monitoring data on concentrations, if available.
7. Draft a workplan on how to extend task 6 to all the relevant models identified in task 5 and all substances reported in EPER. Define the minimum and optimum input parameters for the models needed to include further priority substances. Consider how substances could be grouped according to similar environmental effects, availability of monitoring data, expected releases (only point sources or many diffuse sources). Provide an estimate of the timeframe and required resources for executing the workplan.
8. Develop a strategic proposal on how these models and derived data can be used to estimate and predict the "chemical density" (concentrations, composition and distribution of chemical substances) in the European environment based on emission data. Give an estimate of the reliability and level of uncertainty.
9. Summarise the findings of the feasibility study in a report.

Close co-ordination of work under the contract with other work at the EEA within the operation and the project needs to be ensured at all times.

Outline for Pan-European Assessments of the Marine Environment based on the concept of Large Marine Ecosystems.

1. INTRODUCTION
Under the EU Marine Strategy, the working group on European marine monitoring and assessment (EMMA) aims to evaluate possibilities of EU-wide assessments of the marine environment. Future assessments on a pan-European level should focus on the priority issues, which are common to all European seas like global influences, transboundary problems, linked with common EU-policies and/or ubiquitous problems like eutrophication. All assessments should be based on the "ecosystem approach to management of human activities in the marine environment" (following the working group on ecosystem approach to management of human activities (EAM) under the EU-Marine Strategy). The concept of Large Marine Ecosystems (LMEs), including the DPSIR approach, could give conceptual and organisational guidance for this kind of pan European assessments on the marine environment. In support of the European process the study shall review how the concept of LME can contribute to the preparation of European wide ecosystem based assessments.

2. POLICY BACKGROUND
Integrated assessments of the marine environment are needed in order to support policy analysis and developments and to identify further policy needs of the European seas. Until now assessments have been focused rather on single regions or certain issues. Scientifically sound and detailed assessments have been performed in the framework of the regional seas conventions. Some European wide assessments have been done by EEA with an issue-by-issue oriented indicator approach.
However, integrated assessments taking into account environmental status as well as socioeconomic aspects on EU-wide scale are not well developed by now. But only this kind of sectoral integration would give the possibility to draw out certain policy recommendations.
European and pan-European assessments including the catchment area of all European seas need to be based on regional knowledge and activities.
The Marine Strategy can only be developed and implemented in an effective way if there is a mutual exchange between assessments on regional, EU and Pan European global level.
The working Group EMMA agreed on a set of priority issues for which European assessments might be necessary. This is eutrophication, climate change, unsustainable fisheries, Shipping and stationary construction causing discharges or disturbance of habitats, Hazardous substances including radioactive substances and degradation of biodiversity and habitats. Between these issues the first priority issues will be chosen.
At European Union and pan-European levels, thematic assessments should focus on issues, which affect more than one regional sea. These are likely to cover in particular:
- Land-based sources which transboundary and can affect the catchments of more than one regional sea (that is, in particular, air-borne sources of pollution and diffuse sources of land-based pollution that can only be controlled within the European Union by controls on marketing and use);
- Global issues where it will be desirable for the European Union (if not Europe as a whole) to try to come to a common view for international negotiations. This is particularly true for climate-change issues, fisheries and may also apply to some shipping issues;
The development of the permanent process for a Global Marine Assessment, under the United Nations, will be an important influence on the development of processes under the European Marine Strategy, since regional inputs to that UN process will clearly be needed. Inputs needed for other UN processes, especially those of the UN Environment Programme, should also be taken into account.

2.1 Use of the LME approach
The LME approach is applied on a global level to several quite different marine areas. It is a modular approach consisting of five parts describing for each sea the main elements of 1) Productivity, 2) Fish and fisheries 3) Pollution and ecosystem health, 4) Socio-economy and 5) Governance.
For the European seas LME assessments have already been published e.g. for the North-east Atlantic. Assessments are under way for the Baltic Sea.
In the Baltic Sea the approach is used for structuring the work of the UNEP GEF Baltic Sea Regional Project (BSRP) in a way, that the integration between sectoral policies and the state of the environment described in an ecosystem approach are reflected in the programme. In this sense building up on the Large Marine Ecosystem (LME) concept basically means that since pollution and marine life do not respect state boundaries, management should also be at a higher regional level. The Baltic Sea is a Large Marine Ecosystem, which is defined as a region of marine coastal space characterized by distinct, but similar bathymetry, hydrography, productivity, and trophic linkages.

3. OBJECTIVES OF THE STUDY
The purpose of the study is to evaluate how future pan European and EU-wide marine assessments could be outlined taken into account the relationship between regional and pan-European assessments as mentioned above and the contribution the LME concept could give to that. This includes:
- An evaluation of the conceptual contribution the LME-concept could make to future pan European marine assessments as intended in the framework of the Marine Strategy.
- Support to the outline and planning of such assessments.
The overall task of the successful tenderer is to provide by end 2004 a report on the outline and planning of future pan European marine assessments based on the LME-approach.

4. TASKS
The tenderer will provide in his offer a proposal for a work plan for each of the following tasks:
1. Review of existing assessments based on the LME concept in the area of the Europe's seas (see e.g. http://www.ices.dk/projects/balticsea.asp) The study should also review experiences of international bodies world wide in setting up ecological quality objectives for large marine areas and their application for future management. The work has to take into account the interim results of the Ecosystem Approach WG (EAM) under the Strategy expected in May 2004.
2. Evaluating to what extent the concept of the ecosystem approach developed i.e. under the Marine Strategy (EAM) is equivalent to assessments based on the LME concept. This could e.g. focus on the impacts arising from sectoral policies and the respective human activities affecting the marine environment.
3. Proposal for an outline for pan European marine assessments for the most important environmental issues, mentioned under 2). A review of assessments available at the regional level including necessary tools and available data is available from the work of the WG EMMA. This has to be used and in cooperation with EEA (as member in the EMMA ad hoc group on pan-European assessments) further developed towards a planning of the future assessments
4. Identification of possible strengths and weaknesses of assessments based on the LMEapproach when used for pan-European assessments to be developed in the context of the Marine Strategy (under the WG EMMA)
5. Recommendations for a framework for future pan-European assessments. This should include organisational and structural needs for doing the assessments, take into account the latest achievements under the Marine Strategy as well as the structural framework, which could be derived from the LME approach (see UNEP GEF Baltic Sea Regional Project (BSRP)).

5. GEOGRAPHIC COVERAGE The study has to cover the major European seas and there catchments, North East Atlantic with North Sea, Arctic, Baltic Mediterranean, and Black Sea.

6 TIME SCHEDULE AND ORGANISATION OF WORK
The work should begin within two weeks of signing the contract and be executed in discussion with the respective EEA Project Manager over a period of five months. A detailed work plan must be elaborated at the start of the project and submitted at least one week before the start-up meeting for approval by the EEA Project Manager.
There are no special requirements regarding the location of work. It is envisaged that up to 4 meetings with the EEA Project Manager or visits to the EEA will be necessary:

7. DELIVERABLES
The tenderer should submit the following deliverables:
Detailed work plan for the project, one week before the start-up meeting (three hard copies and one WORD file);
- An interim report on task 1) and 2) and a first draft on task 3)
- A draft final report on the outcome of tasks 3) and 4) and 5)

Title attributed to the contract by the contracting authority:  Preparation of a reporting mechanism under Directive 2002/49/EC relating to the assessment and management of environmental noise.

II.1.6)

Description/object of the contract:  In order to ensure that the data provided under the Environmental Noise Directive 2002/49/EC is as accurate and harmonised as possible, the European Environment Agency in close cooperation with Commission services plans to develop a reporting mechanism for use by Member States. The scope for the present contract covers the preparation of a questionnaire covering all the reporting requirements from Member States to the Commission as laid down in Directive 2002/49/EC, the provision of guidance on the use of such a questionnaire. The work should be carried out in close cooperation with the European Commission working group "Assessment of exposure to noise", whose tasks cover inter alia the provision of guidance on strategic noise mapping and the issue of data reporting under the Environmental Noise Directive. While some of the reporting requirements of the Environmental Noise Directive appear to be quite straightforward (e.g. list of infrastructures covered by the Directive), some other may be more problematic, in particular with respect to the Annex VI requirements considering the possible differences in accuracy and comparability between Member States. This will mainly be the case for the data derived from strategic noise maps, and particular attention should therefore be paid to the possibilities to provide the relevant metainformation on strategic noise mapping techniques. As part of this process, the successful tenderer shall carry out sensitivity tests to determine what effect inadequacies and inaccuracies in the different types of data will produce in strategic noise maps and related exposure data to be reported.
