The Greek Lead Partners/Project partners are asked to address their request for certification to the Single Paying Authority - First Level Control Unit by the end of each reporting period. FLC Unit will issue the relevant certificate after the completion of the checks.

The Greek Lead Partner/Project Partner will bear the cost of the control. The costs for the controller can be reported as eligible external expertise costs in compliance with the relevant EU-regulations and programme rules. The cost of the control will be defined in a contract to be signed between the Single Paying Authority and the project partner after the approval of the Application form. Each Greek partner is advised to allow an amount of up to 3% of its project budget for the control cost. Greece will provide guidelines to all potential beneficiaries concerning the calculation of the control costs.

Further information on staff costs for civil servants

According to the national guidelines, the staff costs of the civil servants for the regular working time are not eligible for Greek partners. Only additional payments for legal overtime work relevant to the project and not paid by the State Budget are eligible.

 

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 Single Paying Authority, being a controller in several projects, will check each project partner at least once, usually during the last reporting period of the project. In addition, further on-the-spot checks can be done if the FLC deems necessary.
