2.29 STEP 2 Can a person from a different department of the same organization participating as partner in a project, receive per diem and travels compensation, as an Associate? Published 2012/01/12

Provided that the JMA cannot give a prior opinion on specific issues concerning the appointment of project staff that remains a decision of the organization participating in the project, associates should be considered as organizations represented by one or more persons that can be invited to attend meetings or events. In particular Associates cannot manage any project budget but their travel and per diem can be covered by the Applicant or a partner, provided that these costs are specified in the budget (under a specific line within the travel ad per diem cost category. See budget instructions for more details).
