Taking Stock of Practices in Greece and Cyprus Towards Simplification – Analysis of Selection of Operations
The project Towards Simplification – Analysis of Selection of Operations – Analysis of Selection of Operations in the Member States takes stock of and disseminates information on the practices and procedures applied by national/regional authorities responsible for the management of the ERDF, ESF and Cohesion Fund in EU Member States regarding the selection of operations in the programming period 2014-2020.
It analyses the selection process (practices, procedures and criteria used) of a sample of 90 calls for proposals, identifies possible challenges and good practices for developing a handbook of practices for effective selection of operations by the Managing Authorities in an effort to help authorities simplify the selection process in the programming period 2021-2027.
OPIX is responsible for the in-depth analysis of the selection process for six (6) Calls for proposals in Greece and Cyprus. For the purposes of the study OPIX:
- conducts desk research by collecting data and information on the selection of operations processes and OPs available online,
- organises workshops with the MAs/IBs for obtaining more information, understanding in-depth the selection process and highlighting the key problems and good practices and,
- conducts surveys with the potential and final beneficiaries for collecting their perspectives.
The project is coordinated by Ismeri on behalf of the EU Directorate General for Regional and Urban Policy.
