The participants in the meeting demonstrated pronounced interest in the presentation of the options and changes in the application conditions for the Energy Efficiency and Green Economy procedure for project selection, which is financed under Operational Programme Development of the Competitiveness of the Bulgarian Economy 2007-2013. The presented new conditions for preparing project proposals for grant financing under Procedure BG161PO003-2.3.02 Energy Efficiency and Green Economy included the introduction of simplified conditions for contractor selection under the procedure and an increase in the rate of advance payments from the grant awarded to the respective project. The participants in the meeting learned about the new Council of Ministers Decree No 69 of 11 March 2013 and the steps for identifying a contractor in compliance with it.

The quoted examples included the absence of clear and specific justification and analysis of the need for the project activities; inaccurately completed indicators; inaccurately completed budget and planning of unrealistic periods for the implementation of the activities in their implementation schedule.
