For a new "Lean Fund Management"


At its meeting on 24 November 2016, the Federal monitoring committee adopted the "Position paper of the Federal ESF Managing Authority on the post-2020 ESF - For a new Lean Fund Management (LFM)".

The position paper aims to restore the necessary balance between careful monitoring of the spending of tax-payer funds, focus on results of programmes, and their practical and timely implementation.

The current excess red tape impinges on the activities of all ESF actors and must be reduced. Is it really necessary to re-invent the wheel every seven years or can we define a setting which can outlive a funding period?

For the ESF less is more!
