We are quite familiar with the financial corrections procedures for systemic errors and errors in public ; Years of implementation and audits may have even taught us the hard ; We are also getting the hang of the newer guidelines on the correction of errors in financial ; Yet, the interpretation and application of regulations and guidance still vary from one person to another, and knowledge and experience on the matters is not equally thorough across all national and regional ;

This course is designed to analyse the common errors at all stages of public procurement, the design and implementation of financial instruments and the EU programme management system in ; We analyse all possible entry points of error and discuss how these may be prevented and corrected, allowing participants to gain confidence in their interpretation and ; Through intense workshops and case studies on all stages, we understand the nature of the errors, the principles that were breached, and most of all, apply a common approach to their correction, seeking a balanced and fair compromise between the Beneficiary, MA, IB, CA, AA, EC and the European Court of Auditors.
