17 Background information  Reporting procedure is made through Presage CTE.  Each LP, Project partners and FLC will have a different user name and password.  JTS sends the LP all partners’ user name and password and LP will have to forward them to each partner.  Those of the FLC will be sent to them after receiving the national approval, in the case of decentralized systems.  Each actor will have a different profile and access to different functionalities according to its role in the reporting procedure.  LP will have access to information of all partners, PP only will have access to their own information.

24  “Expenditure in validation process” by the Lead partner  It is not an eligibility check, but a verification of the conformity of the expenditure against the activities foreseen in the application form  If the partner has allocated the expenditure to the wrong budget line, for example, the LP should refuse it and make the partner correct it before the certification  Once the LP has validated the partner’s expenditure, it will appear in Presage as “Expenditures in certification process”  The First Level Controller will then be able to certify the expenditure LP validates the other partners’ entries
