Financial Management

The Ireland Wales Programme has published a number of Good Practice Guides and Information Notes containing important information on the Programme's payments and control procedures and other compliance issues. 

These documents are essential reading for all project partners (as well as Lead Partners).  Project partners are advised to check this section regularly for updates on Programme compliance procedures.

All Programme publications should be read with reference to the Irish and Welsh National Eligibility Rules on Expenditure, the relevant EU Regulations and Department of Finance and Welsh European Funding Office (WEFO) guidance.
