Project Partners will be controlled by the Regional Assembly from the region in which they are located.

Project partners will be invoiced by the Regional Assemblies for the actual costs of carrying out the First Level Control. The cost will be calculated based on a per diem rate based on the salaries of the two officers, together with appropriate travel and subsistence rates applying to the Regional Assemblies in Ireland. The costs resulting from the control can be reported as eligible project costs in compliance with the relevant EU-regulations and programme rules. Each applicant is advised to allow for €500 per payment claim and an additional €750 for one control visit during the lifetime of the project. [For example if a project has twice yearly payment claims over a three year cycle, the applicant would be advised to provide for control costs of €3750 (€500 x 2 claims x 3 years +€750)].

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 Irish control bodies, being controllers in several projects, will check each project partner at least once. Control Body 1 (Southern & Eastern Region), will carry out on-the-spot checks, usually in the last reporting period, but these may also take place sooner if resources allow. Control Body 2 (Border Midland & Western Region), will carry out on-the-spot checks during any of the reporting periods.
