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

On-the-spot checks

The first level control body will organise on-the-spot-checks for each project partner at least once during the project lifetime.

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.
