Project : Setting up a Programme Management Unit to support the implementation of grant schemes for the Turkish Cypriot community - northern part of Cyprus EuropeAid/135101/C/SER/CY
Status : Proposal Stage
Country : Northern Cyprus
Duty Station : Northern Cyprus
Project Description : The purpose of this contract is to set up an efficient project management unit (PMU) to provide technical assistance services to the Contracting Authority in the preparation, tendering, contracting and management of grant schemes including monitoring, capacity building and other support activities. Experience has shown that grant beneficiaries frequently run into difficulties due to poor understanding of EU rules and procedures and other structural weaknesses. There are currently 5 grant schemes under implementation to be covered by the services of the PMU, which may be increased in the future. They cover a diversity of sectors: rural development, small and medium enterprise development, schools initiative, community development and civil society. These are the main fields in which the PMU will have to provide technical assistance and support. The PMU will need to have an adequate balance of knowledge and experience in these fields as well as thorough knowledge of PRAG rules and experience implementing them. The PMU shall assist the beneficiaries and the contracting authority in all phases of project preparation, implementation and finalisation of the projects as well as the preparation, launch, contracting and monitoring of new calls for proposals. Grant schemes include those financed from the programme of 2006 and later, hence covering activities from ex-post monitoring to assistance in the preparation of new calls from proposals.
