Control system

This section provides information on the system set up for control in Italy and national guidance for the 2021-2027 programming period. 

The system

Italy uses a decentralised control system. The controller can be external and/or internal (as long as it is independent from the unit responsible for implementing the operations and the office in charge for the payments). More information will be made available soon.

The costs

The costs resulting from the control are borne by the project partners and can be reported as eligible costs in compliance with the relevant EU regulations and programme rules. These costs should therefore be planned in the project budget.

On-the-spot checks

For projects where partners report equipment and/ or infrastructure & works costs related to a pilot action at least one “on-the-spot check” (done on-the-spot, not virtually) should be carried out during the project lifetime.

Based on their professional judgement, the controller can however decide to carry out an on-the-spot check for a project not reporting pilot equipment/infrastructure costs, if they deem that it has an added value for their check (e.g. in case of suspicion of fraud, issues with the partner reporting / understanding of requirements, doubts about the proper functioning of internal processes, etc.)

Updated information will be provided as soon as the topic is further defined at national level. For any precision, Italian partners can contact the approbation body.
