8 This project is funded by the EUAnd implemented by a consortium led by MWH Involvement of PC organisations in applications - 1 As Applicants: Well represented (1); not very well represented (1); low level of representation (1) Reasons: Great interest in Programme Differences in Russian and EU legislation Different requirements to financial management Certain difficulties in receiving grant from JMA and transferring money to EU partners Legal status of the CBC ENPI projects in Russia is not clarified and therefore taxation issues are not resolved Specific problems of the public bodies that are managed by Federal treasury

9 This project is funded by the EUAnd implemented by a consortium led by MWH Involvement of PC organisations in applications - 2 As Partners: Very well represented (1); well represented (2) Reasons: Great interest in Programme RU partners are widely informed about ENPI CBC Good experience in previous CBC Programmes Relevant topics and problems to be solved between border related territories In quite a big amount of applications Russian partners are involved just to fulfil formal requirements

10 This project is funded by the EUAnd implemented by a consortium led by MWH Involvement of PC organisations in awarded projects - 1 As Applicants: Well represented (1); not very well represented (2); low level of representation (1) Reasons: Russian organisations are very much motivated to lead projects, so that they fully meet regional needs/priorities Lack of previous experience Different requirements to financial management Differences in Russian and EU legislation

11 This project is funded by the EUAnd implemented by a consortium led by MWH Involvement of PC organisations in awarded projects - 2 As Partners: Very well represented (2); well represented (1) Reasons: Consensus decision making in frames of the joint selection bodies ensures selection of the projects satisfying requirements of all parties involved RU partner – is an obligatory Relevant topics and problems to be solved between border related territories Russian organisations (regional/local authorities, universities, NGOs, private companies, etc.) are fully represented in all awarded projects

12 This project is funded by the EUAnd implemented by a consortium led by MWH Main challenges - 1 As Applicants: Differences in EU and Russian legislation Lack of international project management skills Correct management Financial management and reporting Additional financial and administrative difficulties (distribution of money, audit) Certain difficulties in receiving grant from JMA and transferring money to EU partners Specific problems of the public bodies that are managed by Federal treasury Legislative restrictions, especially for state and municipal bodies Legal status of the CBC ENPI projects in Russia is not clarified and therefore taxation issues are not resolved Lack of language skills

13 This project is funded by the EUAnd implemented by a consortium led by MWH Main challenges - 2 As Partners: Problems in finding EU partners Cooperation with all partners, management Equal participation in decision making Intercultural barriers Partners are not informed enough about the rules and procedures of the Programme Differences and specificities in national rules and legislation Lack of language skills Lack of financial management skills in international projects Specific problems in different types of organisations (e.g. procurement by public organisations)

14 This project is funded by the EUAnd implemented by a consortium led by MWH Disadvantage issue Disadvantage – 1 No disadvantage – 2 Reasons: Due to non-clarified legal status of the CBC ENPI projects in Russia, taxation issues are not resolved and there are problems with receiving grants and transferring money to EU partners

15 This project is funded by the EUAnd implemented by a consortium led by MWH Balanced participation As long as the organisations from Ru are represented in some way in all projects, this is enough – 1 Equal treatment of all applicants is more important than balanced participation – 2 Balanced participation is very important but there is not much that can be done about this - 1 Balanced participation is extremely important for programme success – 2 Explanation -Since the programme is aimed at joint sustainable development of the programme area, only balanced and equal involvement of partners on both sides of the border can contribute to it (NCP) -Balanced participation ensures true partnership that is a core essence of the CBC projects. Equal treatment does not guarantee balanced participation when the legal basis for CBC ENPI in Russia is not comprehensive (CSE)
