To DG FISMA,

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents which contain the following information:

- Any document sent by BlackRock to DG FISMA or the Commissioner and his cabinet concerning the tender of a contract on "Development of Tools and Mechanisms for the Integration of ESG Factors into the EU Banking Prudential Framework and into Banks' Business Strategies and Investment Policies".

- The internal rules that govern the award of a contract such as the contract awarded to BlackRock titled "Development of Tools and Mechanisms for the Integration of ESG Factors into the EU Banking Prudential Framework and into Banks' Business Strategies and Investment Policies", including procedures to assess whether conflicts of interest could be deemed to prevent DG FISMA from awarding the contract to a given bidder.

- Any assessment by DG FISMA of potential conflicts of interest of BlackRock written ahead awarding BlackRock the contract mentioned above.

Yours sincerely,

Kenneth Haar
Overgaden oven Vandet 12

Dear Sir,

Thank you for your e-mail of 04/05/2020. We hereby acknowledge receipt of
your application for access to documents, which was registered on
04/05/2020 under reference number GESTDEM 2020/2525.

In accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 regarding public access to
European Parliament, Council and Commission documents, your application
will be handled within 15 working days.
The time limit will expire on 27/05/2020. In case this time limit needs to
be extended, you will be informed in due course.

You have lodged your application via a private third-party website, which
has no link with any institution of the European Union.
Therefore, the European Commission cannot be held accountable for any
technical issues or problems linked to the use of this system.

Please note that the private third party running the AsktheEU.org website
is responsible and accountable for the processing of your personal data
via that website, and not the Commission.
For further information on your rights, please refer to the third party’s
privacy policy.

For applications made through the AsktheEU.org website, please add:

We understand that the third party running the AsktheEU.org website
usually publishes the content of applicants’ correspondence with the
Commission on that website. This includes the personal data that you may
have communicated to the Commission (e.g. your private postal address).

Similarly, the third party publishes on that website any reply that the
Commission will send to the email address of the applicants generated by
the AsktheEU.org website.

If you do not wish that your correspondence with the Commission is
published on a private third-party website such as AsktheEU.org, you can
provide us with an alternative, private e-mail address for further
correspondence. In that case, the Commission will send all future
electronic correspondence addressed to you only to that private address,
and it will use only that private address to reply to your request. You
should still remain responsible to inform the private third-party website
about this change of how you wish to communicate with, and receive a reply
from, the Commission.

Privacy statement – access to documents.

Yours faithfully,

Dear Mr Haar,
Subject:Your application for access to documents – Ref GestDem No

We refer to your e-mail dated 4 May 20202 in which you make a request for
access to documents, registered on 4 May 2020 under the above mentioned

Your application is currently being handled. However, we will not be in a
position to complete the handling of your application within the time
limit of 15 working days, which expires on 27 May 2020.
