The Practical guide to contract procedures for EC external actions (updated version after Lisbon Treaty) is the first sole working tool, which explains the contracting procedures applying to all EU external aid contracts financed from the European Union general budget (Budget) and the 10th European Development Fund (EDF).

The Practical Guide is also known as PRAG


The questions on the procedures are presented in the Internet pages of the EuropeAid website; these pages give access, by article, to all the texts covering the actions.
