This three-day, highly practical course, will cover all essential aspects of the Cost Benefit Analysis (CBA) in 2014-2020 and its future developments 2021 – 2027. The European Commission CBA Guidepublished in December 2014, its methodology and practical applications, will be discussed with experts from European Commission and European Investment Bank/JASPERS, including lead author of the Guide, and with Member States. It explains why CBA continues to be one of the most important tools in the programming period of 2014-2020 not only for beneficiaries of EU funds, but also for national and regional administrations in their decision-making process regarding investment projects.
It explains how to prepare the best CBA, how to assess a CBA and how the European Court of Auditors audits CBA. This course also covers the closure of major projects and the so-called ‘phased projects’, for which the first stage was financed from 2007-2013, and the second stage, to be financed in 2014-2020, could benefit from a simplified approval procedure if certain conditions are met.
