Irregularities in EU Funded Projects May Cause Major Financial Risks for EU Member States

Public Authorities dealing with EU funded projects still struggle when it comes to irregularities. Huge financial costs are at stake for EU Member States who need to minimize the rate of irregularities and prevent them on programme level. If an irregularity results in an unduly payment to a beneficiary, the payment needs to be recovered. Yet, identifying and the correct handling of irregularities are not an easy task.






Correct Handling of Irregularities Is Essential

Learn from experienced Managing Authorities how to identify irregularities in practice and implement effective and proportional risk management measures. Understand how to differentiate irregularities from fraudulent activities and how to cooperate with OLAF. Get an idea, how to use the IMS and what data to report. Look beyond 2020, reduce administrative burden, improve your internal system and prevent irregularities from the start of your implementation process.
