Strengthening administrative capacities of Managing Authorities for effective use of EU Regional Policy Investment Funds for/in the post 2020 programming period.

Project Type: Administrative Capacity

Contracting Authority: Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development

Implementation: January 2019 - May 2019

This pilot action is implemented in Greece, Poland, Spain, Bulgaria and Croatia. The Managing Authority of the “Transport Infrastructure, environment and sustainable development” Operational Programme has been selected from Greece. The aim of the project is to draft a diagnostic study on the administrative capacity of the Managing Authority and to draw up a roadmap with improvements to be made in four areas:

1) organizational set-up and transparency

2) human resources

3) internal procedures, tools and ICT systems

4) good governance, including interaction with external stakeholders.

The conclusions drawn will feed into the development of guidance on administrative capacity-building for the authorities in charge of handling EU funds programmes in the next programming period.
