Country-specific information

Bodies responsible for Structural Funds programmes

You can find here the lists of the managing authorities and/or intermediate bodies of Investment for Growth and Jobs programmes and European Territorial Cooperation programmes. If policies under these programmes are addressed by a project, we would expect the relevant organisation to be partner. If they are not partners, the relevant organisation must sign the letter of support submitted with the project application.

For more information on the structural funds programmes in this country, please go to DG for Regional and Urban Policy website.

First level control information

This section provides information on the system set up for first level control in your country. Any costs associated with this control are indicated so they can be planned for in any project budget.

The system

Italy has opted for a decentralised control system. Before the first expenditure can be reported, the project partners will have to propose an independent internal or external controller to the following body:

Ad hoc Committee
Agenzia per la Coesione Territoriale
Via Sicilia, 162/C – 00187 ROMA

Contact person for Interreg Europe programme

Francesca Breccolotti
Regione Umbria

This body will authorise the controller proposed by the project partner after having checked that the controller is sufficiently independent from project activities and finances and qualified to carry out the control of an INTERREG Europe project.

The costs

The costs resulting from the control can be reported as eligible costs in compliance with the relevant EU-regulations and programme rules.

On-the-spot checks

In compliance with the article 23 (4) of the Regulation (EU) No 1299/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 17 December 2013 and article 125 (5) and (6) of the Regulation (EU) No 1303/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 17 December 2013, on-the-spot verifications are done for each project partner at least once during the project lifetime. For first level controllers controlling more than one project partner, sampling may be possible under the condition that the method is well justified and documented.

This section provides information on the procedure for the national co-financing reimbursement.
