Implementation of the projects during the COVID-19 pandemic 2020-03-13, Category: Programme news

Dear Beneficiaries,

In the wake of the current epidemic threat and its negative impact on the implementation of the projects under the European Neighborhood Instrument programmes, we would like to inform you that the Managing Authority will take into account the exceptional and unforeseen circumstances caused by the above during assessing projects implementation.

All cases will be considered individually. Depending on the type of the project and problem, we will be looking for optimal solutions.

The Managing Authority, together with foreign partners, is working on mechanisms that will allow you to efficiently implement the activities planned in the projects in a flexible and beneficial manner. As part of the above we accept:

  • extending of the project implementation period,
  • extension of the deadlines for submitting request for payments,
  • flexible approach to dates of organisation of on-the-spot controls,
  • a more flexible approach to assessing the eligibility of expenditures influenced by the current epidemic threat.

We kindly ask you to keep the JTS project manager informed about any problems in the project associated with the epidemic threat caused by spreading coronavirus.

At the same time, we would also ask you to make all necessary efforts to cancel meetings and recover funds paid under the projects as soon as possible, in accordance with the terms of the contract in case of cancellation of travel, meetings, events, etc.
