Control system

This section provides information on the system set up for control in Cyprus for the 2021-2027 programming period.

The control system

Cyprus uses a decentralised control system. The Partner selects an independent external controller who, jointly with the Partner, completes a standardized "Controller Designation Declaration" which incorporates the commitment of the controller and the Control Team for the completion of the verification work within set standards.

The costs

The control costs must be borne by the project partner, and can be reported as eligible in compliance with the relevant EU regulations and programme rules. These costs should therefore be planned in the project budget.

On-the-spot checks

At least one on-the-spot check to be carried out for each partner during the lifetime of the project.

On-the-spot verifications may cover a sample of the work / project activities and / or a sample of original documents that have been audited administratively and should be undertaken with the aim of obtaining a reasonable assurance about the implementation / delivery of the co-financed products and services. The Controller may follow his / her own methodology and sampling method.
