First Level Control Requirement

Cyprus has chosen a decentralised control system. The beneficiaries from Cyprus will have to propose, an independent controller (internal or external) to the following body :


Ms. Despina Stavrou
Senior Planning Officer
Directorate General for European Programmes, Coordination and Development
1409 Nicosia
Cyprus

Phone : +357 22602890
Fax: +357 22666810
Email : dstavrou@treasury.gov.cy

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.

Further guidance is provided in the annexes below.

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, Cypriot FLCs will check each project partner on-the-spot at least once.
