Monetary Dialogues. Framework service contract for the provision of external expertise in the field of monetary and economic affairs

The framework service contract is intended to support the work of the Committee on Economic and Monetary Affairs (ECON) in the European Parliament by enabling it to request expertise in its areas of competence, as appropriate. 

Specifically, with the framework service contract, ECON seeks independent expert advice in the field of monetary and economic affairs to support its scrutiny activity, in particular in the context of the Monetary Dialogues between ECON with the European Central Bank (ECB).

Expertise is requested on a wide range of issues relevant to the work of ECON in relation to EU economic and monetary integration, including governance and institutional aspects, as appropriate. The expertise sought is designed both to strengthen the Committee's knowledge and to provide a solid basis for some of the Committee's own initiatives. The system aims at providing flexibility and autonomy for Committees, making technical and scientific expertise rapidly available when needed, and increases the utility of this expertise to Members in their everyday political work. It shall also provide the European Parliament with a long-term perspective in their political work.

Independent expert advice is requested in the form of briefing papers and/or oral presentations. To this date, CASE has prepared the following papers:
