ICF Consulting was appointed by DG Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion in July
2015 to undertake a study entitled “Monitoring application of the EU Quality Framework
for anticipation of change and restructuring – VT/2015/036” issued under the Framework
Contract “Provision of services related to evaluation, evaluative studies, analysis and
research work, including support for impact assessment activities – Lot 2: analysis and
research including impact assessment (VC/2013/0085)”.
This study provides DG Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion with an objective
assessment of the way in which the EU Quality Framework for anticipation of change and
restructuring (QFR) has been implemented in the first two years (2014 and 2015) since
its adoption. Additionally the study provides the Commission with elements for reflection
on whether there is a need to revise the QFR or take any further initiatives with regard to
the anticipation and management of restructuring.
