European Seminar ESIF 2019: Setting & Achieving OP Targets -Preparing the New Programming Period

Evaluating, Monitoring and Performance Auditing


ESIF will focus more and more on result and impact

In the current programming period, a much stronger focus lays on results-based management. 2019 will be the year of the performance review. Member states have to report their total eligible expenditure to the European Commission by mid-2019 and thus prove that their Operational Programmes (OP) have met set milestones. Where milestones have not been achieved, member states have to reallocate the performance reserve to other priorities within a certain amount of time.

Who is this seminar for?
  • How to prepare for the Annual Implementation Report 2019
  • How to structure processes in order to allocate the performance reserve right
  • How to monitor and evaluate performance
  • What are challenges and opportunities of monitoring Operational Programmes?
  • How to fulfil reporting requirements on implementation progress
  • How can beneficiaries reach targets and contribute to the collection of data
  • What are the most appropriate evaluation methodologies? For which type of operations do they apply?
