Value for money. Accessible funds. Simplicity. Results.

Simpler, more straightforward regulations and procedures have been introduced over the past years, across the new Common Provision Regulation, the Recovery and Resilience Facility and other Funds and regulations. These are measures to stop the buck and truly focus on what matters most – results that make the difference in people’s lives.

Simplified Cost Options are key in streamlining programme objectives with lean management and control. They are effective solutions to excessive paperwork, delays in decision-making and complex monitoring and verification processes. Shifting to SCOs creates a culture shock that changes systems into more flexibility and less rigidity. It truly redefines the roles of all stakeholders in the field.

This event provides an updated review of all the simplified cost options, through practical examples and comparisons. We will explore how to apply the principles available and discuss how they truly contribute towards better results.
