Payments and expenditures

Payments and expenditures

We would like to kindly remind you that advance payments to Beneficiaries are ordered for payment within 45 calendar days from the date of entry into force of the Project Contract (i. e. signing the agreement by the Programme Operator).

Please note that according to our regulations (Article XXIV. 2 of the Project Implementation Agreements) the expenditure is eligible if it is incurred during the project implementation period.

At the same time, we would like to remind you that expenses incurred before the initial date of project implementation are ineligible. In such cases, invoking force majeure will not be effective.

If you have any questions, we are at your disposal.

Information on the implementation of the Programme

We would like to kindly inform you that the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent restrictions on movement and work do not affect the implementation of the Education Programme. The Programme Operator presented a proposal of corrective actions to the National Contact Point and the Financial Mechanisms Office. Suggested undertakings include e.g. extension of the project implementation period, flexible approach to mobility and project meetings when recommending online meetings, extension of mobility in Component II (Mobility in Higher Education) by the winter semester of the academic year 2020/2021, postponing of the next call for proposals, etc. As soon as we receive the position of these institutions, we will forward it to you. We would like to assure that in this non-standard situation we remain at your disposal, sign the last contracts, make current advance payments, etc. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our team.
