First level control information (2014-2020)

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

The system

Lithuania uses a decentralised first level control system. Before the first expenditure can be reported, the project partners will be required to propose an independent external controller to the following body:

Ministry of the Interior of the Republic of Lithuania
Regional policy department
Sventaragio str. 2,Vilnius LT 01510

Contact person:

Ms. Deimante Jankunaite
Head of the Territorial Cooperation Programmes Unit
Phone: + 37052718966
Fax: + 37052718782
Email: [email protected]

This body will approve the controller proposed by the project partners after checking 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.
