This section provides information on the system set up for control in Estonia for the 2021-2027 programming period.
Estonia uses a centralised control system. The control is carried out by employees of the control body mentioned below.
Interreg Control and Regional Development Unit is responsible for checking partner reports and carrying out on-the-spot checks.
The control body
State Shared Service Centre
The State Shared Service Centre will not charge costs for control.
On-the-spot checks will be carried out on a sample basis.
If either equipment will be purchased or investments made by a project partner during the implementation of project activities, on-the-spot check of the respective project partner must be conducted at least once during the lifetime of the project before the final payment.
In the event of risks or shortcomings (i.e problems with reporting, eligibility, procurements) are found by the financial controller during the desk-based check of partner reports, it may lead to on-the-spot checks, even if it was not initially planned.
