APPEL is the application for electronic exchange of information between Directorate General Humanitarian
Aid and Civil Protection (DG ECHO) and its partners (Non Governmental Organisations - NGOs, International
Organisations - IOs, the United Nations - UN, and Member States Specialized Agencies - MSSA).
APPEL has several functions:
It gives existing DG ECHO partners the opportunity to update their administrative data necessary for
the management of agreements,
it allows for the periodic transmission of operational and financial information,
it allows for the submission of electronic proposals, and
it gives organisations, which are not yet DG ECHO partners, the venue through which to apply for the
signature of a Framework Partnership Agreement (FPA).
