First Level Control Information

Spain has chosen a decentralized control system. The beneficiaries from Spain will have to propose an independent controller who is :

  • either registered in the official register of Auditors or
  • from an independent control unit doing controls for other European programmes,

The project partners from Spain will have to propose their controller to the following body :

Ministerio de Hacienda y Administraciones Públicas
Dirección General de Fondos Comunitarios
Subdirección General de fondos de cohesion y cooperacion territorial europea
28071 Madrid

This body will authorize the controller proposed by the project partner (All project partners other than the Lead 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 authorized before the first expenditure can be reported and confirmed.

Once the approved controller has checked and confirmed the reported expenditure, the signed partner control confirmation has to be validated by the body mentioned above (Ministerio de Hacienda y Administraciones Públicas). Only partner control confirmations validated by the Ministry by its signature and stamp can be accepted.

Only in case of an external controller, the costs resulting from the control can be reported as eligible costs (costs that are in line with the programme requirements and can be approved for co-financing from the ERDF) (external expertise) in compliance with the relevant EU-regulations and programme rules.

Internal controllers’ expenses (“Interventores”) are not eligible.
