Country-specific information

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

Poland has opted for a centralised first level control system. Expenditure of Polish project partners will thus have to be checked and confirmed by the following body:

Center of European Projects
Control Unit
Domaniewska 39A str, 02-672 Warsaw, Poland

Contact person:

Miroslaw Marczewski
Phone: + 48 22 378 31 00
Fax: + 48 22 201 97 25
E-mail: [email protected]

The costs

The above-mentioned body will perform the first level control free of charge to Polish project partners.

On-the-spot checks

The first level control body will organise on-the-spot-checks on a sample basis using a risk-based approach.

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.

National guidance

Due to the accrued delays in the implementation of the provisions of the Directive 2014/24/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 26 February 2014 on public procurement and repealing Directive 2004/18/EC as well as the Directive 2014/25/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 26 February 2014 on procurement by entities operating in the water, energy, transport and postal services sectors and repealing Directive 2004/17/EC to the Polish legal system and taking into account the principle of direct effect of directives, it is recommended, in order to avoid the risk of irregularities by Polish beneficiaries who carry public procurement procedures from 18 of April 2016, to apply one of the alternative  approaches:
a. Postpone to carry out the public procurement procedures until the implementation of the provisions of the directives to the Polish legal system.

b. If it is not possible to postpone the launch of public procurement procedures, it is advised to follow the principles laid down in the Communication on the Directive 2014/24/EU and Directive 2014/25/EU of 26 February 2014, available on the website of The Polish Public Procurement Office at: https://www.uzp.gov.pl/aktualnosci/test.

(For public procurement procedures launched before 18 of April 2016 provisions of the current Public Procurement Law are binding, in the version valid on the date of launching a procurement)
