Bodies responsible for Structural Funds programmes

You can find here the lists of the managing authorities and/or intermediate bodies of Investment for Growth and Jobs programmes and European Territorial Cooperation programmes. If policies under these programmes are addressed by a project, we would expect the relevant organisation to be partner. If they are not partners, the relevant organisation must sign the letter of support submitted with the project application.

National events

Details of any events organised in your country are published here. The national point of contact is responsible for the organisation and registration for national events.

National information day on Interreg Europe is an event for potential applicants. It is an opportunity to gain a deeper insight into the features of the new interregional cooperation programme. The event also offers inspiring examples of INTERREG IVC projects and their achievements.

First level control information

This section provides information on the system set up for first level control in your country. Any costs associated with this control are indicated so they can be planned for in any project budget.

The system

The Czech Republic has opted for a centralised first level control system. Expenditure of Czech project partners will thus have to be checked and confirmed by the following body:

Centre for Regional Development (hereinafter referred to as “CRD CR”)
Administration and Control Department of Objective 3 Projects
Vinohradská 46, 120 00 Praha 2 

Contact person: 

Lucie Markova
Finance manager
Phone: +420 221 580 227

This body has regional offices. Contact details of the regional offices will be made available soon, before the first reporting period. 

The first level control will be performed by the regional offices of the CRD CR depending on the region where the partner is located. 

The project partners are asked to submit their progress report to the first level control body for verification and confirmation within 14 days after the end of each reporting period.  

The costs

The above-mentioned body will perform the first level control free of charge to Czech project partners. 

On-the-spot checks

The first level control body will organise on-the-spot-checks on a sample basis using a risk-based approach. In addition, Czech Lead Partners will be checked at least once. The on-the-spot-checks can be performed only after the submission of the first request for expenditure certification and no later than the date of the submission of the last request for expenditure certification.
