Implementation stage

This is the longest and more demanding stage from the side of the successful applicant. It starts with the signature of the Contract with the JMA and finishes with the final payment.
During this stage the successful applicants implement their projects in cooperation with the operational unit of the Joint Managing Authority and in full compliance with the respective implementation procedures.
Strict rules apply in relation to payment and the monitoring of the progress of projects. The procedures applying during project implementation are specific per Call for Proposals and can be found in the respective Guidelines for Applicants.
Generally speaking, during this stage, the successful applicant signs a contract with the JMA, and implements his project according to the content, methodology time plan, and budget approved and included in his contract. During this process, the JMA operational unit is doing regular checks on the progress of the project and supports the successful applicant with the administrative part of the project. According to the progress of the Project, the successful applicant is submitting payment requests. Payments take place after respective control that the progress of the project justifies payment and that the expenditure incurred is eligible.
After the end of implementation, the project “owner” must maintain all the documents relevant to the implementation of the project for future controls.
More details regarding the controlling, reporting, and paying procedures during the project implementation phase, can be found in the Guidelines for Applicants and in the Black Sea JOP programming document.
