First Level Control Requirements
Poland has opted for a mixed system depending on the status of the Polish partners.
- Project partners from the Marshal Offices, Voivodes, Ministries and Central Offices
If Marshal Offices, Voivodes, Ministries and Central Offices are project partners, a decentralised control system is implemented. In this case, these bodies propose their independent internal controller to the following body:
Ministry of Regional Development
Territorial Cooperation Department
ul. Wspólna 2/4
00-926 Warsaw, Poland
Contact person: Ms. Magdalena Rudzińska
E-mail: (secretariat) email@example.com
Phone: +48 22 273 81 71
Fax: +48 22 330 31 56
This body will authorise the internal controller proposed by the project partner (All project partners other than the Lead Partner) if the controller is considered to be sufficiently independent from project activities and finances and qualified to carry out the control of an INTERREG IVC project.
The controller has to be officially authorized before the first expenditure can be reported and confirmed.
Project partners from the above mentioned body can also ask to the Implementing Authority for European Programmes to carry out the first level control. The role of the Implementing Authority for European Programmes is described below.
The control will be free of charge for beneficiaries.
2. Project partners from other organisations
In all other cases, a centralised control system is applied. Expenditure of Polish project partners will thus have to be checked and confirmed by the following body:
Implementing Authority for European Programmes
ul. Rakowiecka 2A
02-517 Warsaw, Poland
Phone: +48 22 542 84 00 / +48 22 542 84 01
Fax: +48 22 542 84 44 / +48 22 542 84 45
Contact person: Mr Mariusz Kasprzyk
Director of Department for European Programmes
Phone: +48 22 542 84 00
Contact person: Ms Katarzyna Suda-Puchacz
Head of SPCP and ETC Programmes Settlement Unit
Department for European Programmes
Phone: +48 22 542 84 30
If partners mentioned under point 1 do not opt for an independent internal controller, they can use the above-mentioned body.
This Body will perform the first level control free of charge to Polish project partners.
In order to comply with the obligation to carry out on-the-spot checks according to Regulation (EC) No. 1828/2006 Article 13 (2) amended by Regulation (EC) No. 846/2009, the Implementing Authority for European Programmes being an authorised centralised first level control body in Poland, applies a risk based sampling method to select project partners for an on-the-spot check.

Further information on how to submit application to the central approbation body is available under the following link: http://www.ewt.gov.pl
Other Country Specific Information:
Polish lead partners can apply for funds from the state budget (up to 15% of the partner’s budget). This mechanism is reviewed each year. It is recommended that interested Lead Partners check the procedure which can be accessed on the website of the Ministry of Regional Development.
