Study on SCOs (simplified cost options)

DG Regio

The current EU programming period introduced a number of simplified cost options (SCO) which aim to reduce the administrative burden relating to the implementation of ESI funds. MDI took part in an international consortium appointed to carry out an evaluation to determine the extent to which the managing authorities had taken SCOs into use. The evaluation was commissioned by DG Regio. The lead partner was t33 from Italy with the work finalised in the spring of 2018.
