With the aim of receiving the proposals for improvement of Latvia-Lithuania Cross Border Cooperation Programme and simplification of implementation terms during the next planning period for 2014-2020, the Programme has organized the in-depth satisfaction survey of the project implementers from January 25 till February 10.

In total 105 respondents, 63 – Latvian and 42 – Lithuanian representatives of the projects have given their estimate. In its turn, 50 of all respondents were the lead project partners.

Our aim is to provide the administration of the client-oriented programme contributing to successful and convenient preparation and implementation of Latvia–Lithuania programme projects, therefore we were looking forward to the responsiveness of the project performers in order to summarize and use the received proposals in development of a new Latvia–Lithuania programme 2014-2020,” Iruma Kravale said, a director of the Development Instruments Department of the Ministry of Environmental Protection and Regional Development.

The respondents have given their estimate on the activities and communication of the Joint Technical Secretariat with the project implementers, as well as the activities of other institutions involved in the Programme management. Simultaneously there have been evaluated the convenience, apprehensibility and functionality of the project application form, reporting and project changes procedure, as well as other requirements relevant to the project implementation.

For example, nearly all respondents (~90%) have estimated the support of the Joint Technical Secretariat as useful and very useful during the period of the project implementation, see Diagram below:



The respondents have specified that the most effective support has been got individually consulting with the Secretariat specialists via e-mail, moreover, the individual consultations organized by the Joint Technical Secretariat were highly useful, as well as the seminars for the project performers on various issues related to the project implementation, see Diagram below:





It is essential that more than half of all respondents (55%) have supported the submission of the electronic application forms in future which would save time resource and make negotiation process easier with all partners involved in the project. Greater number of the respondents (87%) has indicated that it is necessary to make the reporting procedure electronic as well.

Gathered information and respondent proposals will be thoroughly estimated in order to understand how many of them should be implemented with the aim to improve and simplify Latvia-Lithuania Programme during the next planning period for 2014-2020, enabling successful and convenient preparation and implementation of the project for the further years.
