The Instruction 15 laying down specific provisions for the expenditure and revenue verification of a grant contract funded under the JOP BSB 2014-2020 and its Annexes were revised, as to:
– simplify the control work and remove the identified overlaps. In this respect, the former Annex 6 – Template of report on expenditure and revenue verification and Annex 7 – list of factual findings to the instruction have been removed;
– respond to the Beneficiaries’ needs and bring a solution to mitigate the potential losses due to exchange rate variations. Consequently, the Instruction includes (see section 2.7) the option for Beneficiaries to submit financial reports in the eMS, prior to the submission of the Interim/Final Reports.
– clarify, or detail some of its provisions.
