First Level Control Requirement

Denmark has chosen a decentralised control system. When a Danish beneficiary has been notified that the IVC Monitoring Committee has approved the project in which the beneficiary takes part, the beneficiaries from Denmark will have to propose an independent external controller on the basis of guidelines (cf. Annex 1) by submitting the paper version of the Annex 2 duly filled in, signed and stamped to the following body :

Danish Business Authority
Regional Development Unit
Vejlsøvej 29
DK-8600 Silkeborg
Niels Bjerring Hansen
Chief Counsellor

The beneficiary shall propose a controller having experience in controlling structural funds and having knowledge in English. The proposed controller has to be either a "statsautoriseret" or a "registreret" auditor.

The above-mentioned body will then 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. (cf. Annex 1).

The controller has to be officially authorised before the first expenditure can be reported and confirmed.

The control costs can be reported as eligible external expertise costs in compliance with the relevant EU-regulations and programme rules.
