Dear Madam, Sir

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 documents - including but not limited to e-mails, minutes, notes, guidances, presentations, reports - related to when the phrase "Team Europe" should be used.

If you require additional clarification regarding my request, do not hesitate to contact me.

Please note I prefer to receive the documents and any communication in digital format, and not by physical mail. Let's protect the environment.

Sincerely,
Peter Teffer

Dear Mr Teffer,

Please find attached a message concerning your request for access to
Commission documents registered under the above case number 2024/0147.

Unit D1 – Effective Development Policy and Team Europe

DG International Partnerships

European Commission

Dear Madam, Sir,

Thank you for registering my access to documents request under case number 2024/0147, and your request for clarification.

In speeches and the media the definition of what exactly is "Team Europe" is often vague.

Therefore my request should be understood as including documents which contain guidelines on when to use this term, and/or documents explicitly defining what is "Team Europe", and/or documents about the institutional nature of "Team Europe".

I hope this allows you to identify the documents falling under the scope of my request. If not, do not hesitate to come back to me again.

Sincerely
Peter Teffer

Dear applicant,

We are writing concerning your confirmatory request for access to
Commission documents for case EASE 2024/0130 registered on 9 January 2024.

We are currently working on your confirmatory request. However, we have
not yet been able to gather all the elements necessary to carry out
a  full analysis of your request. We will not be able to send you the
reply within the prescribed time limit expiring on 30 January 2024. A new
deadline is needed as consultations are still ongoing. 

Therefore, in line with Article 8(2) of [1]Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 we
need to extend this time limit by 15 additional working days. The new time
limit expires on 20 February 2024.

Dear Madam, Sir

Please pass this on to the person who reviews confirmatory applications.

I am filing the following confirmatory application with regards to my access to documents request case number 2024/0147.

I had asked for all documents including but not limited to e-mails, minutes, notes, guidances, presentations, reports. In its reply, the Commission only refers to already-public documents. I would like the secretariat-general to check whether all internal documents that fall under the scope of my request have properly been identified.

I also would like to point out that two of the webpages that are referred to (Methodological Note on TEI Design | Capacity4dev (europa.eu) & Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) - TEIs | Capacity4dev (europa.eu)) lead to a webpage that says: "Ops, it looks like you don't have the right authorisations to see this page."

Sincerely
