First level control information

Control system (2021-2027)

Please see the table below for a summary each country's control system for the 2021-2027 period.

First level control information (2014-2020)

This section provides information on the system set up for first level control in Italy. The costs associated with this control are indicated so that they can be planned for in project budgets.

The system

Italy uses a decentralised control system. Before the first expenditure can be reported, the project partners will be required 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

Michela Furiani Regione Umbria E-mail: [email protected]

This body will approve 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 Regulation (EU) No 1299/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 17 December 2013 and article 125 (5) and (6) of Regulation (EU) No 1303/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 17 December 2013, on-the-spot verifications will be carried out 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 on the conditions that the method is well justified and documented.
