The National Focal Point (NFP) in the Czech Republic has received many questions related to its Guidelines on Small Scale Tenders. On 25 February 2016 the NFP published this clarification:
The NFP's Guidelines on Small Scale Tenders are binding only for the Czech project partners.
Foreign project partners - and project partners from donor countries - are obliged to follow their national procurement legislation when preparing and implementing small scale tenders.
The change is valid retroactively from the official start-up date of the projects, which is reported by the Project promoters to the Programme operator.
