Managing ERDF Finance

The content concentrates on the practical, financial aspects of project delivery and covers issues of apportionment, overheads, match funding and private sector leverage/revenue. The workshop will also provide an insight into the inspection and audit requirements embodied in the EU Commission’s 2007 – 13 Regulations and how projects can best avoid errors and irregularities through risk management.
The session will -
- Review regulatory conditions relating to ERDF expenditure and DCLG requirements
- Discuss the management of project budgets – profiles, match funding, apportionment methodologies

The workshops, are suitable for Black Country ERDF project staff, funding, finance and procurement officers and accountable bodies and guarantors.
