On July 17th 2017, the Audit Authority within the Romanian Court of Accounts released the final audit report designating the authorities for the Interreg V-A Romania-Hungary Programme.
Thus, the Romanian Ministry for Regional Development, Public Administration and European Funds is designated as Managing Authority, carrying out also the functions of the Certifying Authority, and the Prime Minister’s Office in Hungary is designated as National Authority.
Interreg V-A Romania-Hungary Programme has completed the designation process with an unqualified opinion (without any reservations), which means that the designated authorities comply with all the designation criteria.
This is a crucial step in the lifespan of the Programme. Starting from now on, interim payments can begin and all the resources and efforts can continue to focus on the implementation of the programme and its financed projects.
