Black Country TA: Monitoring and Auditing of ERDF Projects Workshop
from 09:30 am to 04:00 pm
The Black Country ERDF Technical Assistance Team’s supports the development of ERDF activity across Dudley, Sandwell, Walsall and Wolverhampton.
They have organised a number of FREE ERDF capacity building workshops to support existing and newly funded Black Country ERDF Projects to grow their understanding of complex ERDF regulations and to manage their projects in a robust and efficient manner.
Monitoring and Auditing of ERDF Projects
The European Regulations governing ERDF place demanding expectations on project deliverers in terms of maintaining compliance whilst meeting performance targets. Without effective quality management systems linked with sound technical knowledge, deliverers run the risk of non-compliance and clawback of grant.
This one day session is designed to provide an insight into the expectations placed on deliverers and provide practical examples of best practice for current and future project management.
The session will cover -
- The core roles and responsibilities of programme implementation – functions and separation of duties
- How to develop a resourced programme or project specific monitoring system linked to risk management
- The key compliance areas expected by EU Commission relating to Community and National Regulations (EC Reg 1828/2006 Article 13 and Article 16)
- Best practice in using on-site verification visits (PEV and PAV) to reduce risk in programme and project delivery.
The workshops, are suitable for Black Country ERDF project staff, funding, finance and procurement officers and accountable bodies and guarantors.
Please note that although these workshops are free of charge, failure to attend on the day of the session may result in a small charge.
