DG ECFIN intends to launch a low value negotiated call for tender in order to conclude a contract with a legal firm or lawyer.
The scope of the contract is as follows :
The European Commission requires the assistance of an external legal counsel qualified in US law to provide legal advice with respect to US tax legislation.
The purpose of the invitation to tender will be to conclude a contract for a legal opinion as to whether the EU and the European Atomic Energy Community (Euratom) are tax exempt under the jurisdiction of the United States, which taxes are covered by such exemption, and to indicate which provisions award such tax exemption.
In case the legal opinion does not confirm an existing exemption, advice should be given how to obtain such tax exemption.
Estimated volume of work: 1 month
If you are interested in participating in this call for tender please send an e-mail to ECFIN-PROCUREMENT-L6@ec.europa.eu before midnight, Central European Time on 28th March 2016.
