Information


Professional preparation for external audit can make the difference between keeping or losing your funding

In order to cooperate successfully with the EC and to benefit from the external cooperation funds, grantees and contractors have to follow a multitude of administrative regulations and audit requirements. From the proposal phase until after project closure, guidelines for audits as well as for expenditure verifications need to be meticulously followed. Otherwise, audit findings can become a substantial risk.
