 The European Labour Authority (ELA) is a Union body established by Regulation (EU) 2019/1149.

The purpose of this call for tender is to procure a consultancy service to support the Authority in the execution of its tasks, with respect to the obligations arising from Articles 7 and 32 of the above mentioned founding Regulation. The contractor who will be awarded this tender will be asked to provide a set of documents (business processes, workflows, as well as a list of required templates, forms and similar artefacts). The target group of these services is the National Liaison Officers  responsible for enforcement of labour mobility and social security rules.

  • Formulate procedures within the context of Business Analysis and Business Process Re-engineering 

  • Identify and design a set of standardised Business Processes  

  • Design Workflows for the newly designed Business Processes 

  • Identify a list of required documents related to the Business Processes and the underlying Workflows 

  • Design artefacts that will be used as formal notation in the design of future software modules 

  • Reporting 

The Contractor is expected to deliver: 

  • A document which clearly articulates in layman's terms all of the activities falling under Articles 7 and 32 of the ELA founding Regulation, within the context of Cooperation and Exchange of Information between ELA and National Authorities in European Union Member States.

  • Test cases that will be used to verify the effectiveness of the newly designed workflows. The contractor will be expected to also administer the execution of the testing. 

  • A list of required documents that all National Liaison Officers will be using to carry out their tasks successfully. 

  • A set of artefacts (based on the identified Business Processes and Workflows) which in due course will be used as input for the creation of Software modules. The notation used to depict these artefacts will be decided by the Contractor. Nevertheless, it should be one that is widely used in the design and development of Computer Software such as UML, Booch, OOSE, OMT or similar. 

  • A set of status reports summarising the work done for each main task. These status reports should include accomplishments, and problems which were encountered as well as how these problems were tackled.
