Black Country TA: ERDF Project Closure and Exit Strategies 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.
ERDF Project Closure and Exit Strategies
Closing and archiving a project is a separate workstream in its own right with the technicalities of document retention in order to avoid clawback and repayments in the future. Of equal importance is the achievement of the project's exit strategy and sustainability factors. All need addressing through project planning and delivery. This one day session provides the information and guidance to ensure the processes are correctly embedded.
The session aims –
- To encourage projects to develop managed exit strategies and investment sustainability
- To plan for project closure as a component of project management
- To review the process of document retention and archiving to meet ERDF requirements
- To consider the maintenance aspects of project closure – follow up actions, people, assets, lessons learnt.
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.
