The costs

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

The costs of carrying out the first level control will be charged to the project partners:

  • For the Northern and Western Regional Assembly, the costs for desk checks is estimated to range from EUR 500 to EUR 750 per reporting period; and from EUR 750 to EUR 1,200 for one on-the-spot checks (depending on the size of the report). For on-the-spot checks, the actual travel and subsistence costs will be invoiced in addition to the costs of the checks (see rate mentioned above).
  • For the Southern Regional Assembly, the costs for desk checks is estimated to range from EUR 250 to EUR 1,500 per reporting period (depending on the size and quality of the report and supporting documentation). For on-the-spot checks, the actual travel and subsistence costs will be invoiced in addition to the costs of the checks (see rate mentioned above)
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.
