Are you an Economic Operator, Contractor or Expert?

Following a call for proposal for a grant by the European Commission in the field of external action, External Assessors are assigned by Team Leaders to assess and evaluate the propositions submitted, and communicate the results of their assessment of the proposals to the European Commission.

Consult the External Assessors User Manual to learn how to:

  1. Define an assessment team;
  2. Assign calls to team leaders and individual assessors;
  3. Encode evaluations, revise scores and send the finalised evaluations for calls for proposals to the EC.
