Potential applicants will be able to find below answers to some of the questions frequently addressed to the JTS concerning the first calls for proposals for ordinary project. While JTS do their utmost to avoid any errors or omissions, the answers given below are for general guidance, and are not to be considered as legally binding. For this reason the reader is encouraged to consult the source documents when these are referred to.


Question 10.1. Who is responsible for the project evaluation and approval?

The Joint Monitoring Committee (JMC) is responsible for the project selection and approval. The JMC is supported by the Joint Technical Secretariat (JTS), and carries out its functions with the assistance of the National/regional authorities and, if necessary, of external experts. Project proposals evaluation procedure consists of 2 steps:

  • the formal assessment, which is made by the Joint Technical Secretariat, under the supervision of the Managing Authority, and foresees two levels of control: the formal admissibility check and the formal eligibility check;
  • the quality assessment, made on the basis of the evaluation grid and general assessment criteria, as described in the paragraph 12 of the Calls and paragraph 6.2 of the Applicants' Manual. The JMC is responsible for the quality assessment, which is carried by JTS, the IPA Adriatic CBC Programme National or Regional Authorities/Coordinator and, if necessary, by the external experts.

Question 10.2. How long does the assessment last?

The duration of the whole assessment process is based on the number of applications received. However it is likely that the quality assessment finishes by the end of September 2012. It suggested to start the project no later than the end of 2012, in order to have sufficient time after the project closure (end of 2015) to make all the necessary actions for the collection of Final reports and last reimbursement before the end of 2016.
