Regular support for the funds under the European programs managed by the MRDPW continues
The Ministry of Regional Development and Public Works continues to make payments for projects to beneficiaries - municipalities, regional administrations, ministries, non-governmental organizations and others.
Regardless of the complicated epidemic situation and the declared state of emergency in the country, related to the spread of COVID-19 in the territory of Bulgaria, as well as the emergency measures introduced in the territories of the neighboring countries, the necessary organization was created and there is no delay in the processing and reimbursement of costs to beneficiaries. In the period from March 13, when the state of emergency was announced, funds amounting to EUR 175 268 have been paid to beneficiaries for implemented activities under the INTERREG-IPA Bulgaria-Turkey 2014-2020 Program.
The processing and reimbursement of expenditure incurred by the beneficiaries of the Programme continue to contribute to the fullest extent to addressing the crisis and minimize the negative consequences in the social and economic systems. The timely response from beneficiaries and contractors is also an important prerequisite, as in case anybody within the Managing and control bodies - Beneficiary – Contractor system fails to fulfill their commitments or control functions, reimbursement of expenditure is more time consuming.
