4 Global Grants – specifications I 0303 Original idea – simplified conditions Great Britain x Spain Czech model Very limited simplification Almost as the main stream of SF (high standard of administration for low amounts of grants – lack of effectivness)

5 Global Grants specifications II Advance payments –80-90% Monitoring reports (6 month period) Service and consultations (NROS final beneficiaries) –Closer to NGOs –better knowledge of their needs –communication 0404

6 NGOs first experience Benchmark or danger ? Monitoring Specialized staff for management High standard of accountancy Good training for main stream of Structural Funds 0505

7 NROS Intermediary body, simplified grant scheme The only private body in the whole structure Rules and regulations for public administration / lack of general character – ex. how to transfer money to NROS Comparison –Phare Funds and Transition Facility x Global Grants 0606

8 Actual Situation I 2 calls for proposals (information campaign, consultations) –1st call – 113 projects awarded (60% of allocation ) –2nd call – 104 projects awarded (40% of allocation) 3 rd call ? (technical assistance x or GG measure)? ( till now 100% allocation for both Global Grants awarded – exceptional for ESF in the Czech Republic ) 0707
