Parlement européen n'avait pas les informations demandées.

Dear European Parliament,

According to the budget rules (budget item 400) of the European Parliament for every political group the following rules on procurement apply:

- a consultation procedure with at least five candidates must be used for contracts with a value of more than € 60 000; a decision may be taken only if at least three valid tenders have been submitted;
- a consultation procedure with at least three candidates must be used for contracts with a value of between € 15 000 and € 60 000;

On the basis of Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 of 30 May 2001 regarding public access to European Parliament, Council and Commission documents, I ask the European Parliament Political Groups for all documents relating the contracts awarded in 2020 and 2021, as listed on the website of the European Parliament.

These include:

1) All the consultation communications of the Political Groups and its member parties with the potential providers/candidates before the contract was awarded;
2) All the tender responses that the Political Groups and its member parties have received from interested providers for the contracts with a value of more than € 60 000;
3) All the documents regarding the content of the assignment;
4) All the substantiations on why the winning candidate has been awarded the contract.

Yours faithfully,

Kamiel Vermeylen
