Decision in case 1324/2018/MH on how the European Parliament dealt with the reimbursement of travel expenses for an interview and tests

Lunes | 24 junio 2019

The complaint concerned the European Parliament’s decision not to reimburse a candidate for a contract agent post his travel and subsistence expenses. He incurred these expenses when he travelled to Brussels to attend an interview and tests. The complainant was concerned that Parliament’s decision was illegal, and contrary to the principles of non-discrimination and equal treatment.

The Ombudsman found that, at the time, Parliament did not provide contract agent candidates with a contribution towards their travel and subsistence expenses. Parliament’s decision not to reimburse the complainant was in line with its rules in place at the time and respected equal treatment among candidates applying for the same category of post.

Parliament has since changed its rules so that candidates for contract agent posts are now eligible to receive a financial contribution towards their travel and subsistence expenses when attending interviews and tests. The Ombudsman welcomes this change to the rules.

Although she can appreciate the complainant’s sense of grievance surrounding the rules in place at the time, the Ombudsman does not find maladministration and closes the case.

Martes | 18 junio 2019

The case concerned a request by a non-governmental organisation to the General Secretariat of the Council of the EU (GSC) to make public information about all meetings held between interest representatives and the President of the European Council, as well as members of his private office (‘cabinet’).

The General Secretariat of the Council replied to the complainant that while it is under no legal obligation to maintain a record of the meetings of the President or the cabinet members with external stakeholders, it is committed to publishing relevant information about meetings in a structured and proactive manner.

During the inquiry, the Ombudsman found that information on the meetings held by European Council President Tusk with interest representatives is made public.

Decision in case 2199/2017/AMF on how the EU Delegation in Bolivia handled a procurement procedure

Martes | 18 junio 2019

The case concerned a procurement procedure for an EU funded contract, managed by the EU Delegation in Bolivia. The Delegation informed the complainant that it had been awarded the contract. The complainant was also told that, if information received during the mandatory seven-day standstill period justified a more detailed examination of the tenders, the complainant would be immediately notified. Almost one month later, the Delegation informed the complainant that it had decided to award the contract to another tenderer.  

The Ombudsman found that the Delegation had not committed maladministration in evaluating a tender that had originally been rejected. However, the Delegation had failed to comply with its obligation to inform the complainant immediately that it had received information during the standstill period that could have an impact on the award of the contract. She therefore proposed to the Commission that the Delegation apologise to the complainant and compensate it for time and resources spent, after the standstill period, on preparing supporting documents.

The Commission accepted the Ombudsman´s proposal for a solution. The Ombudsman therefore closed the inquiry.
