Die Anfrage war erfolgreich.

Dear International Cooperation and Development,

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

On the 14 January 2020, the BKP Development Research & Consulting GmbH released the following report “Implementation Report of the EFSD and the EFSD Guarantee Fund. Final Report”.

The report, requested by the Commission, drew its conclusions based primarily on interviews and with very little, if any evidence, to substantiate its conclusions.

"Although every effort was made to maximise the depth and breadth of the analysis there were important practical limits, notably that there were no visits to EUDs nor to projects benefiting from EFSD support. In addition, few of the projects approved for Blending grants from the AIP and NIP have progressed far in implementation and at the time of drafting 25of the 28 approved guarantee programmes remain un-signed and prospective. This implies that there was heavy reliance on interviews and that on occasion hard ‘evidence’ is light. "

On 6 June 2020, the European Commission then released a report on the implementation of the European Fund for Sustainable Development.

The report made conclusions based on the following criteria: Relevance, Effectiveness and value added, Efficiency, Coherence and co-ordination, Sustainability.

I am seeking all documents that served as a basis for obtaining the aforementioned conclusions under those headings, as expressed by the report, and in particular hard evidence.

This includes, but is not limited to:

- All correspondence – including all attachments – regarding, mentioning or discussing the Relevance, Effectiveness and value added, Efficiency, Coherence and co-ordination, Sustainability.
- A list of all meetings held where these conclusions were discussed or mentioned, as well as all minutes of these meetings.

Yours faithfully,
Nikolaj Nielsen

informed in due course.

                                                                                                  

You have lodged your application via a private third-party website, which
has no link with any institution of the European Union. Therefore, the
European Commission cannot be held accountable for any technical issues or
problems linked to the use of this system.

 

Please note that the private third party running AsktheEU.org website is
responsible and accountable for the processing of your personal data via

We understand that the third party running the AsktheEU.org website
usually publishes the content of applicants’ correspondence with the

have communicated to the Commission (e.g. your private postal address).

electronic correspondence addressed to you only to that private address,
