Once you find a tender whose funding priorities are in line with the objectives and mission of your project, it is important to review the tender documentation and the attached forms, and prepare a project proposal in accordance with the given instructions and set deadlines. When submitting the documentation, because of its scope, check once more that all the envisaged forms are adequately filled and whether the documentation is complete, to ensure that your proposal is not excluded for administrative / technical reasons.

Negotiated procedure

In the case of particularly complex contracts, when the Contracting Authority considers that the best quality for the available funds can not be achieved by applying, neither an open nor a restricted procedure, a "negotiated procedure" can be used. However, this procedure is used in exceptional circumstances, and it is not common practice.

Contracting authority (CFCU) can call one offerer by choice, preceded by relevant market research. Tender documentation for this type of procedure should not be published.
