Relations with beneficiaries
Beneficiaries and the Centre for EU Transport Projects work towards a common goal, which is full use of the EU funds for the project implementation. It is only through a process of effective cooperation in preparing investments and their implementation that a success may be achieved. Therefore CEUTP supports beneficiaries at each stage of their work, offers counselling, assistance in training, and ensures cooperation in the region where the investment is made. The Centre's employees analyse risks and potential barriers, which might make the undertaking implementation difficult, to eliminate these at as early stage as possible. Good regular cooperation with the beneficiary allows to remove any current obstacles and to respond promptly to any possible threats.
The Centre for EU Transport Projects provides the beneficiary with comprehensive support beginning from the execution of the so called pre-agreements (key projects) providing for the support in the project preparation, to filing the application for cofinancing and next signing such an agreement, and to the project settlement finally. At the same time CEUTP ensures that all EU and national requirements are satisfied in the process of the project implementation, which is not only currently monitored but also controlled for proper accounts settlement of subsequent stages, for reporting and performance. CEUTP's principles of operation are in compliance with the laws of the European Union and Poland, with the rules provided under the Operational Programme "Infrastructure and Environment" and Minister of Infrastructure transport policy. In its approach to beneficiaries being regarded as equal partners in the process of meeting the obligations Poland assumed towards the European Union CEUPT is a friendly and competent as well as demanding institution.
