COMMISSION DELEGATED REGULATION (EU) 2015/2195

of 9 July 2015

on supplementing Regulation (EU) No 1304/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council on the European Social Fund, regarding the definition of standard scales of unit costs and lump sums for reimbursement of expenditure by the Commission to Member States

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Regulation (EU) No 1304/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council on the European Social Fund and repealing Council Regulation (EC) No 1081/2006 (1), and in particular Article 14(1) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

The standard scales of unit costs and lump sums for reimbursement to Member States should be established on the basis of methods submitted by Member States and assessed by the Commission, including the methods set out in Article 67(5) of Regulation (EU) No 1303/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council (2) and Articles 14(2) and 14(3) of Regulation (EU) No 1304/2013.

(2)

Taking into account the different types of operations the European Social Fund may support, the definition and amounts of standard scales of unit costs and lump sums may have to differ by type of operation in order to reflect their specificities.

(3)

There are significant disparities between Member States and in certain cases regions within a Member State, regarding the level of costs for a type of operation. In line with the principle of sound financial management for the European Social Fund, the definition and amounts of standard scales of unit costs and lump sums established by the Commission should also reflect the specificities of each Member State and region.

(4)

In order to allow that the amounts of standard scales of unit costs reflect the level of costs actually incurred, a method is devised to adjust them.

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1
