Event Description

Join us to discuss live issues of Financial Management and Audit of Structural Funds. Share your experiences and challenges with some leading experts in Europe. Work with new information through innovative practical workshops and exercises.
 
Are you familiar with the new rules recently agreed on n+3, and the new relationship between pre-financing, the accounting year and automatic de-commitment? Do you know what EU and Member State auditors are saying about the most frequent financial problems for programmes and projects? Are you familiar with the menu of simplified cost options and do you know how you can simplify the financial management and control of your programmes and projects?
 
How will it help you?
Come and address these and many others questions – at the forthcoming EIPA seminar. The seminar will cover many of the burning issues for Financial Management, Financial Control and Audit of Operational Programmes. Plus you will gain insight into the forthcoming OMNIBUS regulation (due Spring 2018), designed to simplify financial management across EU co-funded programmes.
 
You will enjoy comprehensive sessions with Dermot Byrne, one of the Europe’s leading Member State experts in the field of audit. You will also hear a keynote presentation from the European Commission on the challenges of the public procurement legislation for Cohesion Policy. You will meet with experienced regional practitioners and consultants, as well as colleagues from across the EU, and have the opportunity to put new ideas into practice.
 
In the interactive sessions you can share your experiences, problems, best practices. There will be a range of carefully targeted workshops and exercises, helping you to fix the ideas and practice rules and calculations. You will work in small groups, and all together, and come away with useful hand-outs and worksheets.
 
Who will benefit most?
This seminar is aimed principally at practitioners from Member State national, regional and local authorities working with ESI Funds, but it is also open to the full range of economic and social partners working with the Funds – including universities, NGOs, employers’ associations, consultants.
