Vlada Slovenije, ki deluje v imenu Republike Slovenije, v nadaljnjem besedilu »Slovenija«,
na drugi strani, v nadaljnjem besedilu skupno imenovani »pogodbenici«.
sta se
glede na to, da je Slovenija primerna kot prejemnica pomoči iz programa Skupnosti PHARE, predvidenega z uredbo Sveta Evropske skupnosti št. 3906/89 z dne 18. decembra 1989, ki je bila zadnjič dopolnjena z uredbo št. 2334/92 z dne 11. avgusta 1992,
glede na to, da je primerno določiti tehnični, pravni in upravni okvir za izvajanje UKREPOV, ki se v Sloveniji financirajo iz programa pomoči Skupnosti,
dogovorili o naslednjem:
1. člen
Da bi pospešili sodelovanje med pogodbenicama in z namenom podpreti proces gospodarske in družbene preobrazbe v Sloveniji, pogodbenici skleneta, da bosta uresničili UKREPE o finančnem, tehničnem in drugih oblikah sodelovanja, navedenih v omenjeni uredbi, ki se bodo financirali in uresničevali v tehničnem, pravnem in upravnem okviru, kot je določeno v tem sporazumu. Podrobnosti vsakega UKREPA (ali svežnja UKREPOV) bodo določene v memorandumu, o katerem se bosta dogovorili pogodbenici (v nadaljnjem besedilu »memorandum o financiranju«), vzorec katerega je v prilogi C.
Slovenija bo storila vse potrebno, da zagotovi ustrezno uresničevanje vseh ukrepov.
2. člen
Vsak UKREP, ki se financira v okviru tega sporazuma, se bo uresničeval v skladu s splošnimi pogoji, navedenimi v prilogi A k temu sporazumu, ki se štejejo kot sestavni del vsakega memoranduma o financiranju. Memorandum o financiranju lahko spreminja ali dopolnjuje splošne pogoje, če je to potrebno za uresničevanje določenega ukrepa.
3. člen
V zadevah, ki se nanašajo na UKREPE, financirane po tem sporazumu, bo KOMISIJO v Sloveniji zastopala njena delegacija v Ljubljani, ko bo ustanovljena, kar bo v imenu KOMISIJE zagotavljalo, da se bo UKREP uresničeval v skladu z ustrezno finančno in tehnično prakso.
4. člen
Če se bosta pogodbenici tako dogovorili, lahko KOMISIJA vso ali del svoje odgovornosti za uresničevanje UKREPA prenese na tretjega.
V tem primeru bodo določbe in pogoji omenjenega prenosa odgovornosti določeni v sporazumu, sklenjenem med KOMISIJO in tretjim, v soglasju z Vlado Slovenije.
5. člen
Vsak spor v zvezi s tem sporazumom, ki ga ni moč, rešiti s posvetovanjem, se bo reševal v skladu z arbitražnim postopkom, navedenim v prilogi B.
6. člen
Ta sporazum je sestavljen v angleškem jeziku v dveh izvirnikih.
7. člen
Ta sporazum začne veljati z dnem, ko pogodbenici obvestita druga drugo o odobritvi v skladu z obstoječo notranjo zakonodajo ali postopkom vsake od njiju. Sporazum bo veljal za nedoločen čas, razen če ga ena od pogodbenic ne odpove s pisnim obvestilom drugi.
S prenehanjem tega sporazuma bo vsak že začeti UKREP, ki se še izvaja, dokončan v skladu z ustreznimi določbami memoranduma o financiranju in splošnimi pogoji tega sporazuma.
8. člen
Določbe tega sporazuma bodo veljale tudi za tehnično sodelovanje in druge dejavnosti, dogovorjene med pogodbenicama, ki zaradi svoje narave niso zajete v posebnem memorandumu, financiranem v okviru programa pomoči PHARE na prošnjo Vlade Slovenije.
Priloge so sestavni del tega sporazuma.

PRILOGA A
SPLOŠNI POGOJI MEMORANDUMOV O FINANCIRANJU
V teh Splošnih pogojih izraz »PREJEMNIK« pomeni Vlado Republike Slovenije.
I. DEL – FINANCIRANJE PROJEKTOV
1. člen – Obveznost Skupnosti
Obveznost Skupnosti, v nadaljnjem besedilu »dotacija EGS«, katere znesek je naveden v memorandumu o financiranju, pomeni zgornjo vrednost, v mejah katere se bo uresničevala obveznost in se bodo izvrševala plačila na podlagi ustrezno odobrenih pogodb in predračunov.
Vsak strošek, ki bo presegal vrednost dotacije EGS, bo kril PREJEMNIK.
2. člen Razpoložljivost dotacije EGS
Kjer je uresničevanje UKREPA odvisno od finančnih obveznosti iz PREJEMNIKOVIH lastnih sredstev ali iz drugih virov sredstev, bo dotacija EGS dana na voljo takrat, ko bodo na voljo tudi finančne obveznosti PREJEMNIKA in/ali drugi viri sredstev, navedeni v memorandumu o financiranju.
3. člen – Izplačilo
1. V okviru zgornje vrednosti dotacije EGS bo PREJEMNIK pošiljal delegaciji KOMISIJE zaprosila za sredstva v obliki zbirne tabele v skladu z dinamiko, določeno v memorandumu o financiranju. Kadar to zahteva KOMISIJA, se priloži zaprosilu za sredstva dokumentarna dokazila o plačilih v zvezi s posameznim UKREPOM.
2. Vendar pa so v določenih pogodbah o uresničevanju UKREPOV lahko predvidena neposredna plačila KOMISIJE posameznim izvajalcem. Vsaka pogodba mora določati višino in roke takih plačil skupaj z dokumentarnimi dokazili, ki jih je potrebno predložiti.
3. Dalje, pri UKREPIH, ki se uresničujejo na podlagi pripravljenih predračunov, bo prvi plačilni obrok, ki razen če memorandum o financiranju ne določa drugače, ne sme presegati 20% vsote predračuna, ki ga je potrdila KOMISIJA, lahko izplačan v dobro PREJEMNIKA, da se olajša začetek izvajanja UKREPA.
Drugi plačilni obroki bodo dani na razpolago po zaprosilu PREJEMNIKA pod enakimi pogoji, kot jih predvideva 1. odstavek tega člena.
II. DEL – NABAVA
4. člen – Splošno

l. Razen pod pogoji 6. člena bosta KOMISIJA in PREJEMNIK poskrbela za zagotovitev enakih pogojev udeležbe v pogodbah predvsem s pravočasno objavo javnega natečaja. Natečaj je treba, ko gre za Skupnost, objaviti vsaj v Uradnem listu Evropskih skupnosti, ko gre za države uporabnice, pa v ustreznem uradnem listu.
2. Splošni pogodbeni pogoji, bodo določeni v skladu z ustaljenimi mednarodnimi vzorci, kot so Splošni predpisi in pogoji za pogodbe o nabavah, ki se financirajo iz sredstev PHARE.
6. člen – Odstopanja od standardnih postopkov
V priznano nujnih primerih ali če vrsta, manjši pomen oziroma posebne značilnosti določenih UKREPOV (npr. dvofazno financiranje, večfazne operacije, posebne tehnične specifikacije, itd.) in z njimi povezanih pogodb to upravičujejo, PREJEMNIK, v dogovoru s KOMISIJO, izjemoma lahko odobri:
– izbor Izvajalcev na podlagi zaprtih natečajev;
– sklepanje pogodb z neposrednim dogovorom;
– izvajanje pogodb prek javnih izvajalskih podjetij.
Taka odstopanja od standardnih postopkov morajo biti navedena v memorandumu o financiranju.
7. člen – Dodeljevanje pogodb o izvedbi del in dobavah
KOMISIJA in PREJEMNIK bosta zagotovila, da bo za vsako dejavnost izbrana gospodarno najugodnejša ponudba, zlasti v pogledu usposobljenosti in garancij ponudnikov, cene in kakovosti storitev, načina in pogojev za izvedbo del ali dobav, stroškov uporabe in tehnične vrednosti.
Rezultate natečajev je treba čimprej objaviti v Uradnem listu Evropskih skupnosti.
8. člen – Pogodbe o tehničnem sodelovanju
1. Pogodbe o tehničnem sodelovanju, ki so lahko. pogodbe o študijah, nadzoru del ali tehnični pomoči, se sklepajo po neposrednih pogajanjih s svetovalcem ali po opravljenem natečaju, kadar je to iz tehničnih, gospodarskih ali finančnih razlogov opravičljivo.
2. Pogodbe sestavljata, se o njih pogajata in jih sklepata bodisi PREJEMNIK bodisi KOMISIJA, če je v memorandumu o financiranju tako predvideno.
3. Če bo pogodbe sestavljal, se o njih pogajal in jih sklepal PREJEMNIK, bo KOMISIJA predložila kratek seznam enega ali več kandidatov na podlagi meril, ki zagotavljajo usposobljenost, izkušnje in samostojnost teh kandidatov ter upoštevajo njihovo razpoložljivost za določeni projekt.
4. Če bo šlo za postopek neposrednega pogajanja in je KOMISIJA predlagala več kandidatov, bo PREJEMNIK lahko prosto izbral tistega izmed predlaganih kandidatov, s katerim namerava skleniti pogodbo.
5. Pri natečajnem postopku se pogodba dodeli kandidatu, ki je predložil ponudbo, ki sta jo PREJEMNIK in KOMISIJA spoznala za gospodarno najugodnejšo.
III. DEL – ODOBRAVANJE UGODNOSTI
9. člen – Splošni privilegiji
Osebje, ki sodeluje pri izvajanju UKREPOV, ki jih financira Skupnost, in člani njihovih najožjih družin, so lahko deležni enakih ugodnosti, privilegijev in oprostitev, kot se običajno priznavajo drugim tujim delavcem, zaposlenim v državi PREJEMNIKA na podlagi kakršnihkoli drugih dvostranskih ali večstranskih sporazumov ali aranžmajev o gospodarski pomoči in programih tehničnega sodelovanja.
10. člen – Ugodnosti pri namestitvi, nastanitvi, vstopu in bivanju
Pri pogodbah o izvedbenih delih in opravljanju dobav ali storitev bodo fizične ali pravne osebe, ki lahko sodelujejo v natečajnem postopku, imele pravico do začasne namestitve in bivanja, če pomembnost pogodbe to upravičuje.
