Structural Funds Programmes
Objective 1 Regions with GDP p.c. lt 75 of
Community average. Objective 2 Regions facing
structural difficulties, whether industrial,
rural, urban or dependent on fisheries. Objective
3 For measures to promote human resources in the
Member States through National Employment Plans

Structural Funds Programmes
  • Devolved Programmes managed by the Member States
    but accountable to the Commission for the Funds.
  • 6-year programmes made up of National Operational
    Programmes (NOPs) and Regional Operational
    Programmes (ROPs).
  • NOPs tend to be thematic (e.g. transport) or
    cross-cutting (e.g. information society)
    usually managed by a government ministry.
  • Programmes negotiated in advance with the
    Commission through Community Support Framework
    and Single Programme Documents (SPDs).
  • SPDs present strategic priorities based on a
    priori evaluation and a sound analysis. Programme
    Complements (PCs) provide details of budget
    allocations, indicators and targets.
  • Each programme is the responsibility of a
    Managing Authority whose members reflect a broad
    partnership of relevant stakeholders.

Structural Funds Programmes
  • The SPD(s) and PC(s) are critical documents for
    accessing Structural Funds support.
  • Applications for funding must meet a variety of
    criteria (usually specified in the SPD and PC) to
    be eligible.
  • The most important is the need to be able to
    demonstrate that the proposal will contribute to
    the objectives of the programme.

Structural Funds Programmes
  • The ability of city and other municipal
    administrations to access SF support for
    modernising their administrations, and providing
    eServices to citizens and enterprises, depends on
    the existence of appropriate priorities, measures
    and sub-measures in the SPD.
  • Projects in Objective 1 regions can claim up to a
    maximum of 75 of project funding the remainder
    having to come from other sources (regional
    and/or national, public and/or private).
  • Beneficiaries of the programme (i.e. those
    organisations which can apply individually or as
    part of a consortium) are usually defined in the
    SPD or PC.
  • It is unusual for the private sector to be able
    to apply directly for funds. Many projects are
    therefore applied for by a public agency on
    behalf of a public-private partnership.

Use of Structural Funds Programmes for
Information Society investment
  • The THEMIS Evaluation study estimated that 7.36
    of ERDF had been ear-marked by Regional and
    National programme managers for information
    society investments, 2000 06 (based on SPDs,
    ROPs, NOPs and PCs)
  • This translates into an investment of about 16
    billion of European funds.
  • A rough estimate of total IS investment, allowing
    for regional and national co-finance, is 24
    billion.
  • An even cruder estimate suggests that total
    ePublic-services investment through the SF in the
    EU-15 may amount to as much as 6.5 billion.
  • Even this may be an underestimate since the study
    investigated investment plans, most of which were
    developed in 1999. Since then, eGovernment has
    risen sharply up the agenda as a European,
    national and regional priority.
