Answer given by Ms Ferreira
on behalf of the European Commission
Question reference: E-001206/2020

The European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) operates under the principle of shared management. The programme authorities(1) have the responsibility of selecting and implementing projects, and they also have the primary responsibility for ensuring the legality and regularity of expenditure, investigating irregularities and making the financial corrections required.

The Honourable Member can enquire information on specific projects affected by irregularities at the responsible authorities of the operational programme Calabria ERDF-ESF 2014/20.

As concerns irregularities detected by the programme authorities and affecting expenditure declared to the Commission, the corresponding contribution is cancelled and the amounts are corrected in the next interim or final payment claims or in the accounts submitted to the Commission. The contribution can be used for other projects/operations within the programme.

As concerns the possible existence of other alleged irregularities, there is an ongoing contradictory procedure with the programme authorities following an audit carried out by the Commission services in 2018 which may lead to further financial corrections being applied. Concerning the results of audits carried out by the regional audit authority(2), the Honourable Member should contact the regional audit authority to ask for information.
