Latvia-Russia Cross-Border Cooperation Programme 2014-2020 projects Expenditure and Revenue Verification Guidelines (hereinafter – Guidelines) have been updated and approved by the Managing Authority on 18 December 2020. For your convenience, please find the Guidelines with all updates highlighted in green here.
Here is a short description of the main changes:
- In line with the recommendations of the Audit Authority, the auditors and financial controllers must provide opinion concerning detected ineligible expenditure, stating whether it is of a one-off or systemic character. If systemic error is stated information about any actions required and follow-up steps to be taken to reduce it should be provided.
- The auditors and financial controllers must assess the absence of double funding of reported expenditures. Previously verification was limited to travel, accommodation and equipment costs.
- To improve the quality of the submitted reports, additional recommendations for completing the checklist for the expenditure and revenue verification were introduced.
