Vaccines Procurement Steering Committee

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Secretariat General of the European Commission should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear Secretariat General of the European Commission,

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:

- all times and dates of meetings of the Vaccines Procurement Steering Committee from June 1st 2020 till today

- the names of all participants from all member states for each individual meeting

- all invitations for all meetings of the steering commitee

- all reports (and other notes) from meetings of the Steering Committee, including the agendas for all meetings

- all e-mails and internal documents between member states and the commission regarding the participation and decisions made by the steering comittee

I am a Journalist with the Austrian public Broadcast Organization ORF. The information requested does not interfere with possible contracts with vaccine distributors, as it is just focused on participants sent by member states and their actions, which is in the highest interest to the European public.

Yours faithfully,

Martin Thür

Dear Sir,

 

Thank you for your e-mail of 24 March 2021. We hereby acknowledge receipt
of your application for access to documents, which was registered on
24/03/2021 under reference number GESTDEM 2021/1821.

 

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 19 April 2021. 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.

 

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.

Yours faithfully,

Your confirmatory application is currently being handled. Unfortunately,
