New transparency on European communication budgets and contracts

Submitted by on June 8, 2012 – 20:00No Comment

The Euro­pean com­mis­sion takes a fur­ther step towards more trans­parency with its new por­tal, which give us access to the list of Euro­pean bud­gets’ ben­e­fi­cia­ries from 2007 to 2010. In the field of Euro­pean Com­mu­ni­ca­tion, we first find (with no sur­prise) Brus­sels agen­cies like Mostra and Tipik.

Thanks to Michael Mal­herbe for shar­ing this infor­ma­tion on its blog Décrypter la com­mu­ni­ca­tion européenne.

Con­cern­ing the ben­e­fi­cia­ries of Euro­pean com­mu­ni­ca­tion bud­gets, Mostra agency sits at the top of the list with 745 con­tracts signed between 2007 et 2010, amount­ing to 102.799.822,72 €.

Tipik comes sec­ond with 869 con­tracts and 62.762.644,04 €.

The Euro­pean Ser­vice Net­work is also a good provider, with 10 con­tracts, espe­cially for the man­age­ment of Europe Direct net­work (13 mil­lion euros only for this project over three years).

Next comes Lig­aris with 68 con­tracts and 52.586.829,35 €

More Lit­tle agen­cies account for the remain­der as Ogilivy PR (4 mil­lion euros), Gopa-Cartermill (about 3,5 mil­lion euros), Gel­lis (3 mil­lion euros), Edel­man (2,3 mil­lion euros) and Emak­ina (about 2 mil­lion euros).

Find more infor­ma­tion about those con­tracts on Michael Mal­herbe’ s arti­cle and on the new Euro­pean com­mis­sion trans­parency portal.
