How are programmes implemented ?

Whether initiated at the national or Community level, all programmes part-financed by the Structural Funds are put together by the appropriate authorities in the Member States. Once approved and adopted by the Commission, they are then implemented by the managing authorities appointed for each programme by the Member State.

The financing allocated to each programme allows projects to be implemented on the ground. The managing authority details the eligible measures in a programme supplement. This body is also responsible for selecting projects.

Implementation of the measures and projects is supervised by the Monitoring Committees, which are made up of representatives of the regions, the Member State, the responsible bodies and the Commission. These Committees oversee the implementation of the programmes on a regular basis and set guidelines where necessary.
