Answer given by Ms Thyssen on behalf of the European Commission
Question reference: E-005505/2018

The European Network on Independent Living (ENIL) applied to the call for proposal VP/2017/014. An information session open to all interested organisations — to which ENIL registered — was organised to inform about the objectives and procedures of the call.

ENIL’s application was carefully evaluated by a committee against pre-announced criteria related to relevance, quality, EU added value, results and cost-effectiveness. ENIL’s application did not reach the minimum score for award and was rejected. Two other applicants were also rejected on the same grounds.

Financial support is granted following open and transparent procedures of selection on the basis of equal treatment of all applicants and with respect to the principles of sound financial management.

The rejection of ENIL’s proposal was not based on the value and usefulness of the organisation itself but solely on the quality of their proposal. The reasons of rejection were shared in the standard official manner and on an equal basis with the other applicants. Moreover, ENIL met with the Commission to receive additional information on the decision. In the context of their previous support, ENIL had also received yearly evaluations, including both positive and negative feedback.

This specific call for proposal is now closed. However, ENIL currently receives funding from several EU programmes and can apply to future calls for proposals. Moreover, ENIL continues to cooperate with the Commission.

They are for instance invited to meetings of the High Level Group on Disability as well as major EU-level disability conferences. The Commission also provides financial support to the European Expert Group on the Transition from Institutional to Community-based Care, of which ENIL is a member.
