One of the main objectives of the legislative framework for the European Structural and Investment Funds for 2014-20 is to reinforce the focus on results. Within cohesion policy, one of the ways to do this is by using a JAP. A JAP enables Member States to implement parts of one or more programmes using a results-oriented approach towards a predefined goal. Its focus on results is ensured because it has coherent intervention logic and makes use of SCOs. Selected output and result indicators are linked with corresponding unit costs or lump sums, and this makes it possible to make payments based on achievement levels. To use a JAP, the Member State concerned must first agree it with the Commission.
