Dear DG Neighbourhood and Enlargement Negotiations,

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:

Lists of projects proposed by the governments of Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Montenegro, North Macedonia and Serbia for EU funding under the Western Balkans Economic and Investment Plan, published in 2020.

Yours faithfully,

Ms Pippa Gallop
Southeast Europe Energy Advisor,

Dear Ms Gallop,

 

Thank you for your request for access to documents.

 

Unfortunately, you have not indicated your postal address. This is
necessary for registering and handling your request in line with the
procedural requirements.

 

Please send us your full postal address at your earliest convenience.
Pending your reply, we reserve the right to refuse the registration of
your request.

 

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.

 

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.

 

For information on how we process your personal data visit our page

Yours faithfully,

Dear Ms Gallop,

 

We refer to your request for access to documents, initially registered on
13 December 2021 under the above-mentioned reference number.

 

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 today. An extended time limit is
needed for the purpose of internal consultations.

 

Therefore, we have to extend the time limit with 15 working days in
accordance with Article 7(3) of Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 regarding
public access to documents. The new time limit expires on 2 February 2022.

 

We apologise for this delay and for any inconvenience this may cause and
we thank you for your understanding.

 

Yours sincerely,

Dear Ms Gallop,

 

Please find attached a reply to your request for access to documents,
registered under reference GestDem 2021/8075.

 

According to standard operational procedure, the reply is usually also
sent to you by registered post. Please note, however, that due to the
extraordinary health and security measures currently in force during the
COVID-19 epidemics, which include the requirement for all Commission
non-critical staff to telework, we are unfortunately not in a position to
follow this procedure until further notice.

 

We would therefore appreciate if you could confirm receipt of the present
e-mail by replying to [1][DG NEAR request email]

 

Thank you in advance.

 

Best regards,

DG NEAR
