Thinking about applying for Black Country European Social Funds?

Will you be involved in monitoring and reporting on the progress of your project?

Come along to our one day workshop at The Molineux Stadium (Board Room), Wolverhampton WV1 4QR on 1st March 2018, 9:30-15:00pm,and build your ESF knowledge and skills.

This one-day workshop aims to provide detail into the requirements of the Programme’s inspection framework incorporating the requirements of the Managing and Audit Authorities and their implementation in project delivery through inspections and visits.   The requirements apply equally to Co-Financing Organisations and Managing Authority (match funded) delivery options.  The workshop content covers the range of project internal systems and procedures tested through audits and the actual records tested and retained for prolonged periods post project closure with insight into the related risk management considerations.

The workshop will specifically focus on –

• The key compliance areas covered by EC Regulation 1303/2013 Articles 205 and 207
• The core roles and responsibilities of project implementation – functions and separation of duties
• How to develop resourced project specific monitoring and archiving systems linked to risk management
• Best practice examples of using onsite verification visits to reduce risk in project delivery

The workshop will reflect on the Black Country co-financing arrangements where possible.
