Clarification on the application of procurement corrections in ESIF projects

Die Anfrage war erfolgreich.

Dear Regional and Urban Policy,

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting:

1. A copy of the latest DG Regio staff guidance which covers the application of financial corrections for non-compliance with the rules on public procurement.

2. It is noted that the first and third lines of the guidance for applying financial corrections for non-compliance with the rules on public procurement identifies that the corrections only apply to irregularities (as defined at 2.36 of Regulation (EU) No 1303/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 17 December 2013 laying down common provisions) and where a requirement in the Commission Interpretative Communication dated 23.6.2006 is infringed (the interpretative communication covers the actions of contracting authorities as defined under the relevant directives which are involved in contracts below the OJEU thresholds, under Part B services under the 2004 Directive and in letting concessions in excess of the threshold). Please could you provide a list of all the corrections imposed, in respect of non-compliance with the purchase of goods, works and services in ESIF projects, at the direction of DG Regio since 1.1.2014 which relate to breaches outside the scope of the definition of irregularity and to organisations outside the interpretative communication (for example they are not contracting authorities).

Yours faithfully,

Marcel Hopp

Dear Mr Hopp,
 
We refer to your application for access to documents GESTDEM 2015/2902,
made under Regulation (EC) 1049/2001 dated 05/05/2015 in which you make a
request for access to documents, under the above mentioned reference
number.
You request access to the latest DG Regio staff guidance which covers the
application of financial corrections for non-compliance with the rules on
public procurement.
You also requested "a list of all the corrections imposed, in respect of
non-compliance with the purchase of goods, works and services in ESIF
projects, at the direction of DG Regio since 1.1.2014 which relate to
breaches outside the scope of the definition of irregularity and to
organisations outside the interpretative communication".
Your application is currently being handled. However, we will not be in a
position to complete the handling of your application within the time
limit of 15 working days, which expires on 17/06/2015.
An extended time limit is needed as your application because this document
concern a different service which must be consulted.
Therefore, we have to extend the time limit in accordance with Article

The new time limit expires on 02/07/2015.
We apologize for this delay and for any inconvenience this may cause.
Yours sincerely,
