Management Verifications of ESI/AMIF/ISF/BMVI and Next Generation EU

The purpose of management verifications is to observe the legality and regularity of expenditures in compliance with the EU legislation. They play a crucial role in the financial management and control system of EU funds in the current programming period and will continue to be crucial in the period 2021 – 2027. To ensure an appropriate balance between the effective and efficient implementation of the Funds and the related administrative costs and burdens, the frequency, scope and coverage of management verifications should be based on a risk assessment that takes into account factors such as the number, type, size and content of operations implemented, the beneficiaries as well as the level of the risk identified by previous management verifications and audits. Management verifications should be proportionate to the risks resulting from that risk assessment and audits should be proportionate to the level of risk to the budget of the Union.

Our experts from the Managing Authority, Intermediate Body and Audit Authority will help you gain comprehensive knowledge on the main differences between current practice and new regulatory framework by replying to the main questions covered by 5W+1H principle: Who? What? Why? When? Where? How? Join us to find out more on this whole universe of crucial steps taken by the MCS.

Methodology

The three-day intensive course offers the possibility to meet with experts from EU institutions, Member States as well as the private sector. The different perspectives of our experienced trainers will support you in applying complex rules to your practical day-to-day work. To achieve the best results, we employ a mixture of learning methods.

Our approach combines the three stages of learning to ensure that the participants obtain the best possible understanding of the applied rules:

1) Identification of the main rules and principles,
2) Appreciation of the complexities and limitation of the principles,
3) Application of the rules and principles.

The participants will be actively involved in the course. The sessions will combine presentations, case studies and discussion on practical problems. You will have ample opportunity to present your own issues and discuss them with the speakers and participants from other Member States.

Just send to us your cases and questions in advance! We will forward them to our speakers, who will include your issues in the programme and answer them during the course. All information concerning such problems and cases will be treated confidentially.

We will organise different social activities for our participants on site, during which you will have an opportunity to meet the experts and other participants and to discuss your questions in an informal atmosphere.

Course materials are available to download after the event.
