As part of capacity building for grant beneficiaries, the first two events, out of four planned, were organized by the Contracting Authority (CFCU) in cooperation with European Integration Office of Montenegro, and Ministry for Local Government of Republic of Kosovo and Joint Technical Secretariat of the IPA CBC Programmes Montenegro – Albania and Montenegro – Kosovo 2014-2020 (JTS).
Grant beneficiaries of the 1st CfP under IPA CBC Programme Montenegro – Kosovo 2014-2020 attended the Implementation seminar and Training on Secondary procurement that were organized on 21 and 22 November 2018 in Hotel Verde in Podgorica and conducted by CFCU with technical support provided by the JTS. The events were attended by 29 active participants, who raised several questions and issues on which they may encounter during the implementation.
During these two-day trainings the participants were provided with basic information on roles and responsibilities of grant beneficiaries in relation to the content of contract dossier and its annexes, financial management and record keeping, as well as on contract modification. Additionally, they have been informed regarding main requirements related to reporting, monitoring, control and visibility. Moreover, the participants received information on basic principles related to secondary procurement, preparation of procurement documentation and information on single tender and competitive negotiated procedure.
Following this, in the next period, within the set of capacity building activities for beneficiaries, the JTS will organize and conduct trainings on Reporting and on Publicity and Visibility.
