Programming 2014-2020 : the timetable

Partnership Agreements

The Regulation establishes that each Member State shall submit its Partnership Agreement (PA) to the Commission within 4 months from the entry into force of the Regulation.

The Commission shall in turn make observations within 3 months of the date of submission of the PA by the Member State and shall adopt the Agreement no later than 4 months from its submission, provided that the Member State has adequately taken into account the observations made by the Commission.

This means that as a general rule, PAs should be adopted by end of August 2014 at the latest.

Operational Programmes

The Regulation establishes that Operational Programmes (OPs) shall be submitted by Member States at the latest 3 months following the submission of the PA.

The Commission shall make observations within 3 months of the date of submission of the OP and adopt the OP no later than 6 months from the date of its submission, provided that the Member State has adequately taken into account the Commission observations.

As a general rule, therefore, OPs should be adopted by end of January 2015 at the latest.
