Question for written answer E-002133-19
to the Commission
Rule 130
Cláudia Monteiro de Aguiar (PPE)

 Subject:  Implementation of MAR 2020 operational programme for Portugal
 Answer in writing 

In assessing the management and control of the MAR 2020 Operational Programme, the regularity of its implementation and its goal achievement levels, the Portuguese Court of Auditors concluded that the instrument was far from sufficiently focused and was hence unequal to the task of technical monitoring and ensuring the proper use of resources, placing it in great danger of forfeiting European funding. According to its report, this is due to the excessive delegation management tasks to intermediary bodies, with no clear demarcation of decision-making responsibility and, in certain cases, a duplication of tasks .

The report goes on to indicate that the funding take-up rate is just 13%, attributing this also to the inefficacy of the MAR 2020 programme.

In view of this:

Can the Commission say whether the structure and working of the operational programme is in line with the relevant legislation?

Is it envisaging action to restructure the instrument or secure the necessary modifications to it?

What is the current EMFF implementation rate in Portugal?
