In the programming period 2014-2020 Managing Authorities, Certifying Authorities and Intermediate Bodies have to meet a number of new requirements with regard to administrative and on-the-spot verifications. Not only eligibility of expenditures and compliance with complex State aid and public procurement rules have to be considered but especially the new obligations in preparing and drawing up the management declaration, annual accounts and the annual summary still raise a number of questions to ESI Funds practitioners.

At the same time, public officials in charge of ESI Funds have to be aware of preventing and detecting errors and irregularities, which can result in repayments and financial corrections. Therefore, national authorities have to meet the challenges of stronger financial controls and carry out the respective audits.

This intensive workshop for experts from Managing, Certifying, Audit Authorities and Intermediate Bodies will provide in-depth knowledge, practical exercises and exchange of experience on financial management & control of ESI Funds with the special focus on the new procedures and requirements for a proper verification of ESI Funds 2014-2020.
