Q: Regarding Article II.5, paragraph 2 of the model grant agreement, does this imply that no payment will be made if there is no response from Commission within the stated time limit in Article II.5, paragraph 1 as payment will only be made after receiving explicit approval? If no response has been made within the time-limit do the beneficiaries claim interest on late payment if the time limit has not been suspended?
A: According to Article II.5.2 no payment will be made until the Commission has approved the reports and/or deliverables – even if outside the time-limit in Article II.5.1. The Commission will in that case pay interest in accordance with Article II.5.5 – the beneficiaries do not need to claim it.
