First Level Control Requirements

Finland has opted for a decentralised control system. The beneficiaries will have to propose an independent external controller to the following body :

Ministry of Employment and the Economy
P.O. Box 32
00023 Government
Finland

Ms Tuula Manelius
Phone : +358 10 60 64909
Fax : + 358 10 60 47027
E-mail : tuula.manelius@tem.fi

This body will authorise the controller proposed by the project partner (All project partners other than the Lead Partner) after having checked that the controller is sufficiently independent from project activities and finances and qualified to carry out the control of an INTERREG IVC project.

The controller has to be officially authorised before the first expenditure can be reported and confirmed.

A contract will have to be made between the beneficiary and the controller detailing the cost base for controls. The costs resulting from the control can be reported as eligible costs (costs that are in line with the programme requirements and can be approved for co-financing from the ERDF) in compliance with the relevant EU-regulations and programme rules.

Instructions on certification of first level controllers can be found from the following internet address : www.tem.fi/eay/valvonta.
