First Level Control requirement

The Flemish region in Belgium has chosen a decentralised control system. The project partner will have to propose an independent controller (internal or external), to the following body :

Agentschap Ondernemen- Division Europe Economy
Ellipsgebouw bus 12
Koning Albert II-laan 35
1030 Brussel
Mr André Van Haver
Head of division

This body will authorise the controller proposed by the project 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.

The costs resulting from the control (staff costs in case of an internal controller, external expertise costs in case of an external controller) can be reported as eligible costs in compliance with the relevant EU-regulations and programme rules. The cost will be calculated on the basis of a contract between the beneficiary and the external auditor. The cost for an internal auditor will be based on the staff and working costs of that internal auditor.

Brussels based offices of the Flemish Region partners have to apply the first level control requirements of Flanders.
