Eu financial regulation

EU Financial Regulation

Preamble

(33) This Regulation should foster the objective of e-Government, and in particular the use of electronic data in the exchange of information between the institutions and third parties.

(49) Progress towards electronic exchange of information and electronic submission of documents, which constitute a major simplification measure, should be accompanied by clear conditions for the acceptance of the systems to be used, so as to establish a legally sound environment.

CHAPTER 7

IT systems and e-Government

Article 93

Electronic management of operations

1. Where revenue and expenditure operations are managed by means of computer systems, documents may be signed by a computerised or electronic procedure.


Horizon 2020 rules for participation

Horizon 2020 Rules for Participation

Article 18

Secure electronic system

The Commission or the relevant funding body may establish a secure electronic system for exchanges with the participants. A document submitted by means of this system, including grant agreements, shall be deemed to be the original of that document where the user identification and password of the participant's representative have been used. Such identification shall constitute the signature of the document concerned.


Concept for paperless grant management in horizon 2020

Concept for paperless grant management in Horizon 2020

  • System withqualifiedelectronic signatures (legalequivalent to paper signature) is not feasible

    Instead:

  • Exchanges in a securedelectronic system

  • Identity and access management usingECAS;

  • Digital seal for all transactions (content and metadata)

  • Chain of trust to secureidentity of persons

  • Full electronic document registration, storage and accessin the Participant Portal


Three main requirements

Three main requirements

  • Identity of the signatory

  • Integrity of the signed document

  • Non-repudiation


Identity of signatories chain of trust

Identity of signatories: "Chain of trust"

  • One person in the central administration of each organisation to beappointed by the LegalRepresentativein a formalprocessusingblueink signature = LegalEntityAppointedRepresentative (LEAR)

  • Appointmentletter to comprise supporting documents on identity of the legalrepresentative and the LEAR

  • LEAR mandate (amongother issues): assignpersonsauthorised to sign the different types of documents; supervise assignment of otherroles in the Participant Portal IAM for their organisation


Integrity of document digital seal

Integrity of document: digital seal

  • Digitallysealed PDF document containing:

    • Full content of the transmitted document

    • Set of metadata: certified time stamp, ECAS credentials of the actors in the transaction…

  • Digital sealis an advancedelectronic signature, using public-private key mechanism

  • Insuresintegrity of information: anyattempt to change leads to break of the signature

  • Is stored in the project archive for accessatany time by all actors in the project


Non repudiation

Non-repudiation

  • Identity and access management using ECAS and the chain of trust

  • Digital signature issued by a third party, containingmetadata of the transaction (credentials of users, third party certified time stamp)

  • Transparency (digital project archive) for all parties involved

  • Terms of use for the securedelectronic exchange system to beconfirmed by all users (in particular on keeping ECAS credentialssecretly)
