Simplified Cost Options Can Be a Vivid Example of Simplification for Managing Authorities and Beneficiaries

Simplification is a keyword in the current and the next programming period. Concurrently, the use of Simplified Cost Options (SCOs) has significant implications on the management and control of all ESI Funds. The recently amended Omnibus Regulation aims at a mandatory use of SCOs not only in ESF but also in ERDF. Hence, all responsible programming bodies need to familiarise with these new requirements.

More and more Member States decide to use SCO for their funding implementation. That means that stakeholders involved, such as Managing, Certifying and Audit Authorities as well as Intermediate Bodies and beneficiaries, need to adopt their working methods and procedures in order to achieve positive effects of simplification without compromising the legality and regularity of expenditure.

Come to our seminar and gain deepened knowledge about SCO. Receive firsthand practical experience from well advanced Member States.
