                    General Information:

                    The European Commission has published prior
                    information on an invitation to tender for the
                    provision of an information technology and
                    management magazine. 

                    The Commission will shortly launch a call for
                    tender aimed at selecting a number of
                    organisations from all the Member States. These
                    organisations may be private or public,
                    universities, firms or associations. 

                    The call will cover the provision of services in
                    connection with a new magazine which the
                    Commission intends to publish, the subject of
                    which will be "Information Technology and
                    Management". The main target public of this
                    magazine - which will include both practical and
                    theoretical contributions - will consist of
                    managers working in the European Commission and
                    other European institutions.

                    organisations. The contract will cover the
                    provision of two different types of services: 

                    - Together with the Commission, the selected
                    organisations will set up an editorial board,

                    selection of content of the magazine; - In the
                    case of universities, each of them will set up a
                    drafting committee which will coordinate and
                    select contributions from authors at national
