Member State difficulties with structural funds management and control systems in the programming period 2007-13, study

Member States have experienced difficulties over the establishment of 2007-2013 structural funds management and control systems, which are linked to the applicable rules, the organisational arrangements, human resources and the tools required. While strengthened control requirements seem to have contributed to reducing error rates, such difficulties have affected the rate of interim payments. Besides, structural funds regulatory framework is considered to have introduced more clarity but the focus on control requirements seem no longer proportionate, deflecting Structural Funds managers’ attention from content issues. Recommendations are issued to address the weaknesses identified
