MAIN PROGRAM STRUCTURE
From each investment program guide, it is easy to understand what the stages of actions are from the submission to the implementation of the plan. They are usually the following:
- Submission of the proposal: Each beneficiary reads the program guide and according to it and the PSKE, i.e. the state aid information system or the system defined by the program guide, undertakes the submission of the proposal in order to list the objectives and elements of the investment plan in the corresponding fields of the system. PSKE can be found at www.ependyseis.gr/mis.
- Evaluation of the proposal: After submitting the proposal, the proposal should be evaluated. For this reason in the older programs there was a register of evaluators. That is, a register of evaluators who were examined in some specific skills tests, in order to prove that they know the program guide very well and are able to correctly evaluate the proposals.
- Submission of the proposal by the body: After the end of the evaluation, the management body makes the recommendation of the proposal. This simply means that the management body controls the assessment. The result of this, may differ with that of the evaluator.
- Integration of the proposal: After several proposals for inclusion or rejection have been evaluated, the Monitoring Committee meets and publishes the inclusion/rejection of the proposals. Usually the results are announced on espa.gr in .pdf format. Within the published file, on the right side is the word ADA accompanied by a unique code (This verifies the validity of the file)
- Administrative control: Request A or B intermediate control (usually up to 80% implementation on the subsidized budget), according to which, by presenting the necessary supporting documents, you present the percentage of implementation you have carried out, in order to request the corresponding amount to be disbursed. Before or after the midterm review request, you have the right to submit an Amendment Request. Change Requests are divided into minor and non-minor. As program drivers evolve, there is a tendency for non-trivial things to be modified within the Verification Request.
- Administrative and On-site control: Final Control Request: It is the last stage of the implementation. Some drivers set a minimum implementation rate (usually 80%), but this is not a rule. The final control request is the one in which the investment will be completed and the beneficiary will request the remaining amount to be disbursed, if the on-site verification is carried out.
- Check payment documents: This stage follows after the end of the audit/certification (whether it is intermediate or final). It is the procedure in which the beneficiary is asked to provide the necessary supporting documents in order to make the payment.
- Compliance with long-term obligations: several of the program guides set some goals that should be met upon completion or the last disbursement (varies from guide to guide). The beneficiary is asked to provide all the necessary supporting documents to document the eligibility of the project.
