Parliamentary questions
31 October 2007
Answer given by Mr Frattini on behalf of the Commission

With regard to programmes implemented through shared management, such as the European Refugee Fund I and II, and now also the four new funds falling under the General Programme Solidarity and Management of Migration flows, the responsibility for the management and implementation of the programmes lies with the national authorities in each Member State. Therefore in that case it is the responsibility of national authorities concerned to ensure that potential beneficiaries have all the necessary information and assistance allowing them to present project proposals in accordance with the relevant rules. The financial means to carry out such improvements in capacity building are also available to national authorities under the technical assistance in these programmes.

With regard to programmes directly implemented by the Commission, contrary to the statement in the third paragraph of the written question, the EC has been co-financing Maltese non-governmental organisations (NGOs) through various instruments. The list of NGOs includes the Jesuit Refugee Service under the European Refugee Fund and SOS Malta under the Return Preparatory Actions.
