  1. European Commission TW Contract

  2. MICROSOFT CORPORATION TW: from idea to action IB StC + Contract signature + Notification Selection committee Provision of MS proposals Acceptance of the proposals TW Fiche Circulation MS selected MS + BC TW contact preparation Draft TW Project Fiche EC Approval RTA arrival

  3. Way for seccess Why is it so important to draw a GOOD contract? • Preparation - the most crucial phase • It sets the ground for the project implementation • The final result depends on the ingredients! • A good contract avoids serious problems in the implementation! • It is everybody’s roadmap

  4. How to draft a good contract? • Reference Documents: • Twinning Manual (latest updates!) • Standard Format of the Contract (Annex A of the Twinning Manual) • General principles: • Twinning = Joint exercise!! • Make sure that the key actors on both sides are involved • Preparatory costs for MS covered • Basis: Project Fiche (mandatory results) and MS proposal • TW contract must be developed in line with fiche! • AO and/or EC Delegation acts as facilitator

  5. Twinning contract management • Planning is essential • Timing and deadlines: • 7-10 months form circulation until start of activities • Notification of TW contract signature → RTA within 3 months • Involvement and availability of key staff • MS and BC PLs to manage own staff in coherence • Best approach - MS PL is distinguished from “technical” project management (accounting, bookkeeping, etc.)
