Simplification and harmonisation: preparation for the new programming period

On 28-29 March 2012 the Working group on Finance Management and FLC met on invitation of INTERACT to discuss practical proposals to simplify, clarify and harmonise rules, procedures and documents in the next programming period in Madrid. In meanwhile more than 50% of all ETC (European Territorial Cooperation) programmes are involved in this Working Group and also the Baltic Sea Region Programme JTS (Joint Technical Secretariat) supports the Working Group actively. The work is focused on very technical details like joint definitions of budget lines, eligibility rules, FLC (First Level Control) processes and documents, simplified cost options as well harmonisation of the core elements of application and reporting forms. Harmonisation with neighbouring ETC programmes is for the Baltic Sea Region JTS a high priority e.g. to allow beneficiaries using of similar procedures and templates in all ETC programmes.
