1.6 How long it takes the approval of my substantial budget change?

It will take approximately 1 month. As stated in the General Conditions to the Contract Article 9.1 the beneficiary should submit the request for changes at least a month before the changes need to be implemented. No action can be taken by the Beneficiary according to the new budget before a formal written approval by the Contracting Authority. Retroactive activities before their approval will be considered ineligible for financing from the grant.

After the official submission of the request for contract modification, the Contracting Authority will carefully examine the necessity of changes, review supporting documentation, and any clarification received upon to the Contracting Authority's request before signing the approval of the amended contract.

Taking into account the above conditions, any amendment at the end of the contract will only be considered by the Contracting Authority if received and officially registered with minimum 30 working days before the end of the action (the date of termination of the project).
