First level control information
Austria has set up a decentralised First Level Control system with the following characteristics :
a) The control tasks are carried out by an appropriate body of the responsible federal ministry, if the project partner (All project partners other than the Lead Partner) who participates in the programme is under their authority, act on behalf of them or is predominantly co-financed by them.
b) The control tasks are carried out by an appropriate body of the responsible Land, if the project partner who participates in the programme is under their authority, act on behalf of them or is predominantly co-financed by them.
c) As regards all other project partners (who are not under the authority of the Republic of Austria or a Land, are not acting on behalf of them or are not predominantly co-financed by them) the responsibility for the control lies with the Austrian Federal Chancellery.
Details concerning the bodies assigned to carry out the control / to sign the control confirmations can be found in the document to download. The selection of a first level control body is dependent on the criteria set above and limited to the first level control bodies listed in this downloadable list of “Public Control Bodies’. It should be noted that the first level control bodies are required to submit a ‘Confirmation of Austrian Control Body taking over project control responsibility’ (Form B) with the first Progress Report (Comprised of the Activity Report and the Financial Report. It documents the progress of the operation and serves as payment request. Lead partners of operations ...) . If the first level control body changes, a new Confirmation of Austrian Control Body taking over project control responsibility (Form B) will have to be submitted. Further information is also provided under the following link/ Checkliste zur Bestimmung der Prüfzuständigkeit für österreichische Projektpartner (Stand 05.02.2009)
The bodies mentioned under a) to c) and specified in the Annex can assign qualified external controllers to carry out – under the supervision and ultimate responsibility of the abovementioned public bodies - the operative implementation of the control. The control costs might have to be bornе by the Austrian Lead / project partner and in that case can be reported as eligible external expertise cost within the project in compliance with the relevant EU-regulations and programme rules. Each Austrian partner is advised to foresee a budget of 3-4% of the partner’s total planned budget under external expertise and services (Costs paid on the basis of contracts and against invoices to external service providers who are sub-contracted to carry out certain tasks of the project are eligible. ...) to cover these control costs if they occur.
Even if external controllers carry out the control, the partner control confirmations will still be signed by the bodies mentioned in the Annex and assigned the controller to the project partner.
For transnational, interregional and network programmes under the European territorial cooperation objective (ETC) the Austrian Federal Chancellery pursuant to national law (Agreement between the Republic of Austria and the Länder pursuant to Art. 15a of the Federal Constitutional Act on the Management and Control System in Austria for the Structural Funds (The EU's Structural Funds are administered by the Commission to finance Community structural aid. They comprise the Guidance Section of the EAGGF for agriculture, ...) in the period of 2007-2013) is the so called “coordinating control body” which is assigned to coordinate the control tasks and to serve as contact for the relevant managing authorities, certifying authorities and audit authorities.
