  • Role Lead Partner:
    • Be the policeman of the project, ensure that all certified costs can be connected to eligible/approved project activities (Letter distributed)

Northern Periphery Programme recommends that all partner Certificates of Expenditures (CoEs) to the LP are supported by a partner activity report, clearly outlining the individual partner activities, and a transaction list to demonstrate which costs are related to what activities.

AND

It is vital that the Lead Partner can extract the individual partner activities from the overall Work Package activity plan, potentially outline individual partner activities in the partnership agreement.
