Control system (2021-2027)

Please see the table below for a summary each country's control systems for the 2021-2027 period.

2014-2020

This section provides information on the system set up for the first level control in Czech Republic for the 2014-2020 programming period. 

The costs associated with this control are indicated so that they can be planned for project budgets. 

The system

The Czech Republic uses a centralised first level control system.

Czech project partner's expenditure must therefore be checked and confirmed by:

The project partners submit their progress report to the first level control body within 15 days after the end of each reporting period for verification and confirmation.

Based on the good practice used for verification of expenditure in the Czech Republic for previous programme Interreg IVC, all Czech project partners can submit expenditure for verification to controllers only if the amount of the expenditures is above 7,500€ and/or at least once a year.
Czech project partners can also submit expenditures for verification to controllers below the 7,500€ threshold. However, in this case they first need to get approval from the respective controllers. Whatever the threshold used, Czech project partners must submit partner report (activity part) every reporting period.

The costs

On-the-spot checks

The first level control body will organise on-the-spot-checks on a sample basis using a risk-based approach. In addition, Czech Lead Partners will be checked at least once during the project lifetime. The on-the-spot-checks can be performed only after the submission of the first request for expenditure certification and no later than the date of the submission of the last request for expenditure certification.

Guidance for Czech Beneficiaries (Pokyny pro příjemce ke kontrole) were published on national level to help partners through the control process. The guidance can be downloaded here in the section "Dokumenty", "Pokyny pro příjemce".
