Since the original agreement was signed, five further changes have been made to update the list of BPH partners and provide up-to-date information on the project. The VPA is not in itself a funding agreement, there are four additional specific grant agreements for the first three phases of the project, Ramp Up Phase, SGA1 and SGA2, as well as an Electronic Infrastructure Computer Agreement (ICEI) that funds EU super-computing centres to provide services to Neuroscience. For more information on the project`s funding structure, click here. The framework partnership agreements mention the general rights and obligations of the parties. In addition, the rights and obligations of the parties at the conclusion of a specific grant agreement are defined and the rules for EU-funded humanitarian aid operations are established. The VPA aims to promote a quality partnership based on professionalism, diversity, the ability to meet humanitarian needs, compliance with agreed rules and standards, and the obligation to improve the delivery of humanitarian aid. In addition, the VPA aims to promote the quality, efficiency and effectiveness of aid to ensure that EU-funded humanitarian aid operations are implemented in the most appropriate, timely, efficient and effective way and achieve the results set out. Once the partnership agreement is signed, partners will be able to submit project proposals each year in response to the Humanitarian Implementation Plans (IRPs) published by DG ECHO. The European Commission`s Directorate-General for Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection (DG ECHO) does not intervene directly on the ground. The implementation of humanitarian aid is carried out by humanitarian organizations such as humanitarian non-governmental organizations (NGOs) with which DG ECHO is in partnership. Partners are selected according to specific criteria and legal and financial requirements as well as quality standards.
This helps to ensure that partnerships are valuable to both the European Commission and the candidate organisation. The Partnership Framework Agreement sets out the principles of the partnership between ECHO and humanitarian organizations. It defines the respective roles, rights and obligations of partners and defines legislation on humanitarian actions funded by DG ECHO. To become a humanitarian partner of the European Commission, organisations must apply for a Framework Partnership Agreement (VPA). . consistent with the EU`s political approach to humanitarian aid, including the Commission`s standards and guidelines, particularly on sectoral and thematic issues; Free the power of producers and workers to promote inclusive trade and development through fair trade, see press release (30_October_2015_FPA press release.pdf) 1.
