The Republic of Turkey has committed to fulfilling the European Union’s (EU) acquis communautaire in the political field of agriculture. In order to further alignment and as part of its pre-accession commitments, Turkey has committed to establishing an Integrated Administration and Control System (IACS) including a Land Parcel Identification System (LPIS) in order to facilitate controls on agricultural land across the country and to process aid applications as is the case for EU agricultural support payments. This will be achieved via ortho-photo acquisition and digitization through three technical assistance contracts. As such, the AETS consortium’s consultant assisted the EU Delegation in Ankara in its ex-ante control of the tender evaluations for the project: “Digitization of Land Parcel Identification System”. More specifically, the consultant made an independent, ex-post analysis of the evaluation process for three technical assistance tenders and advised the EU Delegation about the admissibility of the evaluation result further to comparing the evaluation report and the offers submitted for the relevant tenders.
