  • The procurement falls outside the scope of application of the directive
Explanation:

The overall aim of the project is to obtain new knowledge that can contribute to the prevention of unintentional breaches of foster home placements when these are due to parents" considerations to their own children. The intention in the project is to use qualitative approaches that shall thoroughly examine the challenges that biological children have as foster siblings and what is important to prepare and take care of them. The methods will follow the requirements for research design and will be used systematically. The project consists of several parts, of the which the empirical parts, in which new knowledge will be obtained, will make up the largest part of the project.

The project is, thus, seen as R&D, cf. the definition in the Frascati Manual, OECD.

Thus the requirements in paragraphs 2-5 in the Public Procurement Regulations are deemed to be met.
