Additional controllers may be certified and added to this list. Each new certified controller will receive a consecutive certificate number.

Authorization of a controller to carry out the control of an INTERREG IVC project

Request for nomination of controller

Twice a year / before the end of each reporting period the project partner will ask the following body for the nomination of a controller listed in the shortlist of controllers :

 Ministry of Regional Development and Public Works
"Territorial Cooperation Management" Directorate General
17-19 "Sv. Sv. Kiril i Metodi" St.
Sofia - 1202, Bulgaria
Fax: +359 2 98 70 737
Director General of “Territorial Cooperation Management” Directorate General

Project partner and the nominated controller submit a checklist for approbation to the Ministry of Regional Development and Public Works.

The "Territorial Cooperation Management” Directorate General will inform the nominated controller and the partner of the nomination and will invite them to fill, sign and submit a “Checklist for the Approbation of first level controllers”. 

Issuing a “Certificate for approbation of the controller”

Following reception of the document and checking that the nominated controller is independent from project activities and finances the Ministry of Regional Development and Public Works will authorize the controller to carry out the control of the INTERREG IVC project by issuing a “Certificate for approbation of the controller” .

Signature of a contract

The project partner will then contract the authorised external controller. A template of a contract between the controller and project partner can be downloaded. The control costs will be born by the Lead / project partner and thus can be reported as eligible external expertise cost within the project in compliance with the relevant EU-regulations and programme rules. According to the national control system the recommended basic fee per controller per verification procedure (every 6 months) is EUR 307. (Total recommended fee per year per project per partner is 614 EUR).

First level control

The nominated first level controller will sign the Lead / project partner control confirmation (annex 5a, 5b, 5c to INTERREG IVC Programme Manual - see Project resources).

For each reporting period, Bulgarian project partners will attach a copy of the "certificate for approbation of the controller" together with the partner control confirmation.

For further information on the control system in Bulgaria, the National Contact Point can be also contacted (see above for contact details).

For further information on the supervision of the control activities implemented by the external controllers, the following person can be also contacted:

On-the-spot checks

In order to comply with the obligation to carry out on-the-spot checks according to Regulation (EC) No. 1828/2006 Article 13 (2) amended by Regulation (EC) No. 846/2009, Bulgarian FLCs will check each project partner on-the-spot once every reporting period.
