On 12th August in Sofia (4 Slavyanska street) the Managing Authority (MA) of Operational Programme "Administrative Capacity" (OPAC) will organise training sessions for the beneficiaries approved under the following procedures:

1.Direct grant procedure under sup-priority 1.1-02 „Effective Structure of the State Administration",

3.Open procedure under sub-priority 2.1-04 „Modern Human Resources Management in the State Administration",
4.Open procedure under sub-priority 3.1-04 „Improvement of the Service Delivery to Citizen and the Business Sector, including through e-government development".

It is traditional to hold such trainings after the completion of every OPAC selection procedure. The objective of the trainings is to prepare the beneficiaries to appropriately manage the projects, including to ensure correct reporting. The experts are presented with their obligations in the implementation of the projects, including reporting irregularities, as well as with the process of monitoring and financial control on the part of the Managing Authority. In this way the risk of incorrect project implementation and the ensuing financial corrections is reduced.

The newly approved OPAC beneficiaries are thirteen as follows: Council of Ministers, Ministry of Finance,  Ministry of Regional Development and Public Works, National Revenue Agency (with two project approved), Registry Agency, Geodesy, Cartography and Cadastre Agency, District Administration of Blagoevgrad, Sofia Municipality, Municipality of Varna, Municipality of Plovdiv, Municipality of Shumen, Municipality of Kotel and the Bulgarian Institute of Metrology.
