Projects with country partners
The Slovak Republic uses a centralised first level control system.
Slovakian project partners' expenditures will therefore need to be checked and confirmed by the approbation body.
The project partners are required to submit their progress report to the first level control body for verification and confirmation as soon as possible after the end of each reporting period. If a request for clarification(s) is made, project partners will be granted seven working days to reply (after receipt of the draft control report).
The approbation body
The Ministry of Economy of the Slovak Republic,
The above-mentioned body will perform the first level control free of charge for Slovakian project partners.
The first level control body will organise on-the-spot-checks at least once during the project lifetime. Furthermore, risk-based sampling will be applied to select project partners for additional on-the-spot checks. The Slovakian Ministry of Economy may also decide to carry out on-the-spot check based on whistleblowing.
