National Authorities

The national authorities are counterparts of the JMA in the programme preparation period, in the framework of which they are responsible for the coordination of the programming process in their respective countries, the financial management of the funds, in particular regarding the recovery of any unduly spent amounts on their territory, participation in JMC meetings, and proposing candidates for membership of the SC to the JMC for approval.
The JMA and the NA from Bulgaria and Greece concluded a memorandum of understanding for the recovery of unduly spent funds.
In Non-Member States, the NA signed a Financing Agreement (FA) with the EC regulating the division of responsibilities between the partner country and the EC.
