Project description
Pilot surveys conducted by the organisation show that the requirements concerning deadlines defined in the Code of Administrative Procedure are not respected not only in the case of EU projects, but also for competitions financed from public funds. Public administration takes the date of receiving documents in the office as a basis for counting the deadline, while according to existing regulations it should be counted based on the postmark date.
The aim of the project was to introduce standards of respecting CAP regulations concerning deadlines by all central and local government institutions participating in the implementation of the financial perspective for 2014-2020.
The project was not completed. Information on the deadlines for filing applications for 3000 competitions financed from EU funds were checked in all voivodeships under the financial perspective for 2007-2013. Based on that, the data were compiled in spreadsheets that were supposed to be available till 2020 on the web page (at present, the page is not available). The data gathered only confirmed that in most cases the administration took the date of receiving applications in their offices as a basis for counting the deadline. In view of technical (loss of data on servers) and organisational problems, the Foundation was not able to complete activities to prepare, sum up and spread the results of monitoring, and to introduce changes in public institutions.
