About this seminar

What are the key issues for Financial Control and what do the new (draft) Regulations mean for Financial Management and Financial Control in 2021-2027? How are we presently trying to reduce the administrative burden of Management Verifications and what is envisaged for the next programming period?

This seminar examines these issues as well as the relationship between control and audit, how the audit trail can be best protected, questions of eligible expenditure and how to extend the use of simplified cost options.

What you will learn in this course

  • How to identify the elements of a piece of EU legislation that you have to implement
  • How to ensure compliance with EU Treaty obligations while meeting national, constitutional, and administrative requirements, as well as balancing both domestic and supra-national political interests
  • The consequences of incomplete, wrong, late or non-implementation of EU law

By the end of the course, you will be able to

  1. Efficiently implement the EU directives by establishing and managing a process of consultation and coordination with governmental and non-governmental stakeholders
  2. Convert contradictory political, legal and budgetary interests into practical and operational solutions
  3. Reduce the risks of getting involved in time-consuming infringement probes
