The Governing Body

The Governing Body defines ad-hoc operational plans for each national thematic area, setting out the expected results, and the required actions and interventions to attain them consistently with timely implementation of investments. These plans must include financial estimates, implementation time schedules, and monitoring procedures. The Governing Body itemises the annual breakdown of financial needs till the third year following the end of the 2014-2020 programming period.
