Development Cooperation

Financial Management in Development Cooperation is a challenge for many beneficiaries beyond the European Union’s borders

The European Union is the world’s biggest donor, providing more than half of all development aid worldwide. However, in order to cooperate with the EU successfully and to benefit from the funds, beneficiaries have to comply with a multitude of accounting regulations of projects financed by the EU. EU financing instruments such as the Instrument for Pre-Accession Assistance (IPA), the European Neighbourhood and Partnership Instrument (ENI) and the Financing instrument for Development Cooperation (DCI) necessitate extensive reporting and a strictly result based management approach on the side of beneficiaries to comply with all rules and prevent the withdrawal of funding.

The competitive dialogue and the competitive procedure with negotiation as compared to the open or restricted procedures can be advantageous tools to purchase complex contracts: they make it possible for public buyers to refine requirements, develop a detailed evaluation matrix and purchase works, services, and goods (e.g. research products) tailored to their needs and budgetary constraints.
