Art 1. Subject matter of the Agreement

1.1 This Agreement is concluded in the context of the partnership established between the Parties. It is drawn up in accordance with the relevant terms of the Framework Partnership Agreement No […] signed between the Commission and the Humanitarian Organisation on [date on which the last Party signed the Framework Partnership Agreement] (hereinafter referred to as 'the Framework Partnership Agreement'). The terms and conditions of the Framework Partnership Agreement and its Annexes are fully applicable to this Agreement, except where explicitly provided otherwise.

The terms of the FPA and its annexes (the General Conditions and Annex III) are applicable to the SGA. However, where Article 6 SGA foresees conditions derogating or supplementing the General Conditions, these shall have precedence over all other applicable rules.


1.2 The Commission has decided to award a grant (hereinafter referred to as 'grant'), under the terms and conditions set out in this Agreement and the Framework Partnership Agreement, including its Annexes, for the Action entitled [insert title of the Action in bold] (hereinafter referred to as 'the Action') as described in the Single Form […], which forms an integral part of this Agreement.

The title of the Action is retrieved from the section 1.2 of the Single Form. Where the title of the Action does not indicate the country of operation, this will also be included, where relevant

The reference number of the Single Form is the number notified automatically to the partner at the time of the submission of the last version of the proposal via APPEL. The system will automatically identify the last version of the SF (approved version) and will insert the relevant reference number in the Agreement.


1.3 With the signature of this Agreement, the Humanitarian Organisation accepts the grant and agrees to implement the Action in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Agreement and of the Framework Partnership Agreement, including its Annexes, acting on its own responsibility.

The text of the General Conditions and Annex III are not annexed to individual Agreements, but by signing the Agreement the partner acknowledges that they will apply to the Action.

The full text of the proposal (i.e. the last version of the Single Form sent by the partner and accepted by ECHO) is also an integral part of the Agreement.
