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 documents which contain the following information:

Thank you for your e-mail of 20 October 2020. We hereby acknowledge receipt of your application for access to documents, which was registered on 21 October 2020 under reference number GESTDEM 2020/6293.
In accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 regarding public access to European Parliament, Council and Commission documents, your application will be handled within 15 working days. The time limit will expire on 12 November 2020. In case this time limit needs to be extended, you will be 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.
We understand that the third party running the AsktheEU.org website usually publishes the content of applicants’ correspondence with the Commission on that website. This includes the personal data that you may have communicated to the Commission (e.g. your private postal address).
Similarly, the third party publishes on that website any reply that the Commission will send to the email address of the applicants generated by the AsktheEU.org website.
If you do not wish that your correspondence with the Commission is published on a private third-party website such as AsktheEU.org, you can provide us with an alternative, private e-mail address for further correspondence. In that case, the Commission will send all future electronic correspondence addressed to you only to that private address, and it will use only that private address to reply to your request. You should still remain responsible to inform the private third-party website about this change of how you wish to communicate with, and receive a reply from, the Commission.
For information on how we process your personal data visit our page Privacy statement – access to documents.

Dear Mr. Völker,
Although the Structural Funds are part of the EU budget, they are spent on the basis of shared responsibility between the European Commission and national authorities. This means that the Commission negotiates and approves programmes proposed by EU Member States. The Commission allocates resources to them and the EU countries are in charge of their implementation, including project selection. Therefore the information you have kindly requested is not available to the Commission services but with the authorities managing the Spain-Portugal Interreg programme (POCTEP). Please find here the contact details of the managing authority:
