Project and Programme Management (Study Visit)

Upgrading the full application pack : Calls, Contracts, Claims and Checks

4 intensive days to improve Management, Monitoring and Control based on concrete Walk-through Checks with Beneficiaries and Auditors  and a good occasion to anticipate the design and implementation of new calls and Management & Control systems. This study visit will focus on the evolution of  Project, Verification and Monitoring officers’ job for both “soft” and “hard” interventions and to see concrete improvement of  the data collection and reporting from beneficiaries to authorities. A panel of experts (including project managers, beneficiary representatives, supervision engineers…) and auditors will present their techniques, tools and checklists with a specific discussion about the type and level of corrections and possible reporting. How to make it fair and proportionate ? A good occasion to simplify and in the meantime to make more secure checks. A good occasion as well to visit and talk directly to Beneficiaries around Dubrovnik and make concrete illustration of findings and exchange of data.
