Brussels, 28 July 2021 – A consortium of four organizations, including the boutique consultancyWhite Research, recently won the second framework contract to provide evaluation, monitoring, and feedback services for an interinstitutional group of fifteen EU agencies, led by the European Foundation for the Improvement of Living and Working Conditions (EUROFOUND). The contract is worth 9.8 million euros.

The consortium, led by the consultancy Deloitte, includes the European Institute of Public Affairs (EIPA), the non-profit foundation Fondazione Brodolini and White Research. Each organization has specific areas of expertise that the EU agencies can call upon. White Research for example has rigorous data collection and analysis protocols and masters a wide range of advanced multivariate analysis techniques such as clustering, factoring, structural equation modelling, multilevel modelling, content analysis and others that can be used for evaluation purposes.  

The overall objective of the framework contract is to support the participating EU Agencies (see below for full list) in being compliant with their regulatory obligations for monitoring and evaluation. More specifically, the consortium’s tasks will be: 1) to provide evaluation and feedback services for the participating EU agencies and 2) to provide participating EU Agencies with support in the implementation of their respective evaluation tasks through the provision of externally sourced evaluation and feedback expert services.  

Four years 

The framework contract will start in August 2021 and is concluded for a period of 12 months. It will subsequently be renewed automatically up to three times, unless one of the parties receives formal notification to the contrary at least three months before the end of the ongoing duration. 

“We at White are extremely excited with this big win, our second framework contract win in recent months, both in collaboration with our friends at Deloitte. The consortium’s unique combination of strengths allows us to provide evaluation, monitoring and feedback services of the highest quality to the EU agencies participating in this multiple framework contract.” – Christian Hauschildt, Managing Director, White Research
