Please find attached the document Ares(2019)7066234 from ve_chafea.access-documents (CHAFEA.A) dated 15/11/2019.

Dear Consumers, Health and Food Executive Agency,

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 'Submissions for Track and Trace Everis tender'.

I very much appreciate your hard work and prompt response, and I understand that some amount of the data you have located is sensitive and can't be shared.

However, I'd like you to review the response in light of two questions:

First, were there other parties that submitted tenders for this contract? If not, why?

Secondly, the European Parliament flagged this contract as containing a conflict of interest:
http://www.europarl.europa.eu/doceo/docu...

In this release, you have not provided data that could clarify, one way or another, if this concern was well-founded. However, this was a sizeable contract. (1.3 million Euros), and one that had significant impact on a European law.

Please consider releasing data about the employment history of the contractors themselves. Please release any further due diligence that was done on the contractors, on PwC, or on Everis for this contract--including relationships between PwC and the tobacco industry, and any communication with third parties on the subject of this contract.

Finally, document 6 contains a clarification request sent from Everis to the Commission on the subject of the contract. Please send the document they have attached with their questions.

A full history of my request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.asktheeu.org/en/request/subm...

Yours faithfully,

Aisha Down
