About this seminar
New Operational Programmes for 2021-2027 are being prepared and negotiated. How will you achieve what you need to achieve in your new programmes? What do the new draft Regulations say about programming, the selection of priorities, financial planning and the financial management of programmes?
This seminar will address these questions and examine the draft new 2021-2027 regulations. We will make extensive use of the new OP templates. We will see how the draft regulations attempt to simplify rules, add flexibility to programmes, generate synergies between policies and instruments, and maximise the impact of funding.
There will be two keynote presentations from highly experienced practitioners from Czech Managing Authorities – who will share their experiences of key live OP issues. We will assess whether the new regulations embrace lessons learnt and good practice from current programme implementation.
Key elements for your new programmes include:
- priority setting, Country-specific recommendations, Country Reports
- planning, new conditionalities, engaging stakeholders
- the financial tables, financial planning, flexibility
- monitoring changes and real-time reporting
- preparing the new Performance Framework; designing programme-specific indicators
- simplifying management verifications, risk management
- choices for simplified cost options and audit checks for SCOs
- highlights of the new OMNIBUS regulation
