Principle to consider

-
funds of all MS will be subject to actual payment
requests (activity of projects), therefore:

ERDF funds allocated



eventual ERDF
outpayments

(to individual states)


(to projects in that country)

Technical Assistance (TA)

Nature of TA:



Technical Assistance (TA) is one part of the total programme
budget. It consists of ERDF funds and a national contribution,
just like the budget for the projects.



Application of funds:

“Technical Assistance (TA) is used to finance costs for the
implementation of the programme. It refers to
costs concerning
administration, information, and acquisition of equipment,
development and operation of computerised systems,
monitoring, evaluation and control.”

Underlying considerations

applied with budget preparation

-

IR IIIA TA budget under IR III B umbrella




but:

separate compilation for each individual budget

-
Management of Prio. 1
-
3 (III B incl. enlargem.)

-
Management of Priority 4

-
Management of Prio. 5
-
6 (IIIA)

-

total TA budget (just as budgets for projects) depends on



national co
-
financing rate (large varations possible)


-

different current TA
-
rates considered



(III B=5.4%, Prio.4=5.0%, IIIA=5.0%)

actual rate is higher!)

Grant rate

set for payment requests made by JS to COM


currently:

53.2% (each payment to COM request must




not have a higher grant rate!)

goal
:


set high enough in new CIP to cover all



possible peaks in upcoming payment requests

reasons
:

1. already now peaks of up to 67.6%






2. many objective 1 area partners expected

proposal
:

increase rate to 70%

execution
:

retro
-
actively (to approved/paid funds) to



claim funds already decommitted
