b. its “Sustainability”,
c. the price per Emission Reduction.
- notification of the evaluation of the project proposal in about 6 weeks after receipt of the complete Project Proposal.

|10||Host Country Letter of Approval, if available||See format in Appendix 6a and 6b|
Only the Host Country Letter of Approval can be provided later on. However, if the Host Country Letter of Approval is provided with the Proposal, it will be considered as a favourable element for the evaluation of the Proposal.
Further information about these documents is given in the Terms of Reference, which will be available in English and French.
The Belgian State will pay a financial contribution of EUR 40.000 to Project Proposals that are complete according to the Terms of Reference of the second tender, i.e. that fulfil all the requirements set out under the second phase of the tender and that provide a declaration under oath stating that their project was not submitted before to other potential buyers of Emission Reductions.
The Proposals will be assessed according to the award criteria ‘Certainty of delivery’ and ‘Sustainability’. The information included in the Proposal must therefore be sufficient for the Contracting Authority to assess those elements.
- The ‘Certainty of Delivery’ assessment
Likelihood of smooth registration (CDM EB) or acceptance (JISC)
Likelihood of smooth approval by the Host Country (e.g. LoA)
- The ‘Sustainability’ assessment:
Local / Regional / Global Environment
Social Sustainability and Development
Economic and Technological Development
Saving non-renewable primary energy resources
As further explained in the Terms of Reference, the project proposals must obtain a minimum score of 60% for both its ‘Certainty of Delivery’ and its ‘Sustainability’.
An ERPA format will be available as appendix to the Terms of Reference. This format is an ERPA with guaranteed delivery, and is intended as a flexible ERPA format from which negotiations can start. The ERPA is signed between the project owner, entitled to the Emission Reductions, and the Belgian State.
