In exchange for the execution of the research project by the participants, and their use of the results, the Commission undertakes a financial contribution to the work.
With the exception of those cases where the Commission's contribution takes the form of a lump sum, payment consists in the reimbursement of eligible costs incurred by participants following a predetermined calculation method. Paym ent is made in instalments at regular intervals.1. Incurred eligible costs
In order that the Commission fulfils this obligation, participants are required to identify and declare their eligible costs by the submission of interim and final cost statements. Participants must retain supporti ng documents, which justify these costs, for at least 5 years from the end of the contract, to permit inspection by Commission services or other institutions, particularly the Court of Auditors.
The different categories of costs that are eligible for Commission funding differ according to type of contract (see Indicative typology of Contracts, and Metohds for the Calculation of the EC Funding).
2. Calculation methods
A number of different methods for calculating the Commission funding are applied, depending on the type of action involved and on the participants capacity to identify his incurred costs (see Indicative typology of Contracts, and Metohds for the Calculation of the EC Funding).See also: Contract Preparation - Additional FP5 Administrative Info - Participant's Choice of the Cost Reimbursement System *
3. Payment of the contribution
The Community contribution is paid in Euro, in a number of regular instalments based on cost claims submitted by participants with their interim and final reports.
The Commission may make advance payments at the beginning of project, contingent on verification of the participants financial standing. In certain circumstances the Commission may request financial or other guarantees to ensure th e security of any advance payment made. This is particularly necessary for those shared-cost actions where the participants themselves are expected to support part of the cost.
