In the South Baltic Programme, a project shall contain activities which are additional to the ones carried out on a regular basis by the involved institutions. The Programme does not finance tasks which belong to the statutory competences of partner organisations and may be carried out without funding from the Programme.

Adjacent area

Some areas in the South Baltic Programme – adjacent areas – are eligible under the so-called 20% eligibility rule. This means in practice that the Programme may report costs related to the activities incurred on the territory of these areas to the limit of 20% of the ERDF budget. In the Programme it is assumed that all costs paid by a partner located in the adjacent area are subject to the 20% eligibility rule. The 20% limit is to be monitored at programme level, i.e. individual projects might include a higher share of costs paid by partners in the adjacent areas.


Application is a part of Application Pack and consists of Application Form and compulsory attachments as well as further documents/attachments. All these documents can be found in the Application Pack that is available at the Programme website from the opening of the call.

Application Pack

Application pack is comprised of documents needed for the development and submission of an application: Call for proposals, Application form (see Application), Guidelines for filling the Application form, Programme Manual and Co-financing statement. Application pack is published on the Programme website. New Application Pack is prepared for each call for proposals.  

Associated organization

In the South Baltic Programme associated organizations are those entities that claim no refund from the ERDF (e.g. because they are for-profit organisations or are located outside the eligible area). They participate in the projects by signing the letter of commitment and contribute own resources (e.g. cash, working time) for covering all project-related expenditures. More detailed description can be found at the Programme Manual, Chapter 4.3.


In the South Baltic Programme audit, or the Second level control, is led by the Audit Authority (AA) and the Group of Auditors (GoA). These bodies are responsible for ensuring the effective functioning of the management and control system in the Programme by carrying audits on the MA, CA, JTS and on the first level controllers; as well as ensuring that audits are carried out on the operations on the basis of a sample in order to verify the expenditure that has been declared. The audit includes both desk checks and on-the-spot checks. Each project may be subject to audit. It is the Lead Beneficiary’s responsibility to ensure that in case of any financial control all the documentation is available.

Audit Authority (AA)

The Audit Authority is responsible for ensuring the effective functioning of the management and control system in the Programme by carrying out audits on the MA, CA, JTS and on the first level controllers. The Polish Ministry of Finance acts as Audit Authority of the South Baltic Programme.
