Good news Apr 5

And "bravo" to all, particularly the freelancers. Little fish in a big pond can still get their share of the cake. Good news. (I know, I have never seen a fish eat cake either).

Winner winner chicken dinner Apr 5

Is one of the mentioned winners (LSP) the same company that has been banned from posting jobs on ProZ, or is the sameness of the name just a coincidence?

Cool Apr 5

This is heartening. I thought about bidding for a similar contract in Sweden recently but the paperwork was just too much.

Especially as the Swedish authorities always seem to go for the cheapest supplier, bitch about the quality and then go back to the self same supplier next time...

The General Secretariat of the Council of the European Union also awarded contracts to freelancers Apr 6

The institution I work for also awarded contracts to freelancers (translation from English into German and into Croatian). Quality accounted for 70 per cent of the points and price for 30. The names of the freelancers concerned (and of the agencies) will be published in March 2018 because we publish names of awardees of middle value contracts only once a year.
