This body has 7 regional offices in all NUTS II regions.

1. Control of projects

The first level control will be performed by the regional offices of the CRD CR. Project Partners will be controlled by the regional office from the region in which they are located. First level control for Czech partners is performed free of charge.

Contact details of the 7 regional offices can be found here.

2. Control of subprojects of mini-programmes:

Certification of expenditures incurred by participants in sub-projects is delegated to an independent auditor selected by the relevant regional project partner and approved in advance by the Controller. Audit costs (for certification of sub-projects) are reported within the relevant regional project partner\'s budget - the chapter “External expertise and services”. The original “Control Confirmation” of the relevant sub-project issued by the independent auditor shall be delivered to the relevant regional partner with a copy to the relevant leading sub-project partner. The certified sub-project expenditures shall be included in the relevant regional partner\'s report (accompanied by “Control Confirmation”) and checked by such regional partner\'s Controller.

3. 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, the Centre for Regional Development, being a controller in several projects, applies a risk based sampling method to select project partners for an on-the-spot check. In addition, Czech Lead Partners will be checked on-the-spot at least once.
