Project Appraisal

This involves a meticulous examination of various legislative documentation and an assessment of the promoter’s procurement capacity. HUT supports EIB’s project teams during the review of pre-qualification and tender documents, evaluation reports, and contract modifications/cancellations. Acting as independent observers during project developments, the HUT ensures that project procurement plans and strategies are fit for purpose.

Project Monitoring

As part of project monitoring, HUT will be actively engaged during the implementation phase and beyond. HUT will also be expected to conduct thorough post-review/project evaluation exercises, acting as a diligent observer of project developments – this process includes assessing project objectives, stakeholder interactions, and effective project management practices. Through continuous project monitoring, HUT ensures that projects align with their intended goals and provides valuable insights to enhance project performance indicators.

Project Evaluation

Post-evaluation/Audit involves a detailed examination of project documentation, ensuring comprehensive coverage of processes and outcomes. HUT’s evaluation activities contribute to a thorough understanding of project effectiveness and lessons learned. The resulting post-review report, produced by HUT, should provide valuable insights and recommendations to the EIB team, facilitating continuous improvement and informing future decision-making within the organisation.

We are delighted and honoured that HelpUsTrade has been recognised as a key contributor to the European Investment Bank (EIB) Innovation and Competitiveness (INCO) Department Procurement Framework Agreement (2021 – 2025).
