We refer to your e-mails dated from 11/12/2014 to 19/12/2014 in which you

We have identified the following document as falling under the scope of

Author: Nandor Vass

o Title: Total external consultancy expenditure per DG 2012 -2013

Author: Nandor Vass

Date: 25/03/2014

Please find enclosed a copy of the documents requested.

It includes an indication of the topics of the items, the names of the
providers, the country where the providers have their seats, as well as
the date when the budget appropriations were committed by the authorising
officers (where available).

For the sake of coherence, consultancy was defined as "services provided
by external firms with a primary purpose of giving expert advice". Cost
items such as those related to outsourcing of operational activities and
IT development were not included in the list.

The data on which the compilation is based were encoded in a decentralised
manner by the individual DGs.

Also, we are aware that you have already received some individual
responses from some DGs. However this response is intended as a general,
consistent one on behalf of all DGs, so as to present the data in a
unified manner and to make it easier to navigate for you.

Yours sincerely,

Hegay Pierre
