Projects with country partners
Latvia uses a centralised first level control system. Latvian project partners' expenditure will therefore need to be checked and confirmed by the following body:
Ministry of Environmental Protection and Regional Development (MEPRD)
In addition to the regular six-monthly checks, the project partners will be asked to submit a procurement plan within 10 days after project contracting. Procurements will be pre-checked on a sample basis based on the procurement plan submitted.
The above-mentioned body will perform the first level control free of charge to Latvian project partners.
The first level control body will organise on-the-spot-checks on a sample basis using a risk-based approach.
Depending on the legal status of the partner organisation, Latvian partners can apply for state budget co-financing in order to cover part or all of their national contribution in the project. Public bodies and bodies governed by public law may apply for 100% of the national contribution, private non-profit bodies may apply for 5% of the national contribution to be covered by state budget co-financing.
The procedure for applying for state budget co-financing depending on the status of the partner organisation is stipulated in the national regulation:
