What are the key live issues for Programme finance and Financial Management of Operational Programmes in the 2014-2020 period? What are the key Audit and Public Procurement issues? Are these accentuated as current programmes try to absorb the emergency REACT-EU funding? How do the New Regulations change Financial Management and Audit rules for 2021-2027?
This seminar will address these questions and take a close look at the programme and financial templates for the new EU Structural and Cohesion Funds programmes. There will be a special focus on extending the use of simplified cost options, the most frequent audit issues (eg. eligibility of expenditure, public procurement) and on the role of strategic procurement.
