Contractual and Financial Framework

Mar 11, 2021


The Contractual and Financial Frameworks Working Group (CFF WG) aims to ensure that simplified and viable contractual frameworks are established under which network Members can efficiently collaborate with the EU. It deals with a wide range of issues, including:

  • Working toward simplified and robust contractual frameworks to maximise impact while reducing administrative burden.

  • Dialogue and knowledge exchange with the Commission on the clarification of rules and their application.

  • All issues related to the Financial Regulation, Pillar and Ex-ante Assessments, Financial Framework Partnership Agreement (FFPA), contract documents (Contribution Agreement), implementation and cost eligibility.
