3.41 STEP 2 Can the administrative costs and contingency reserve managed by EU Applicants/partners be considered as eligible to fulfill the 50% rule in worksheet 4 of the Budget? Published 2012/01/30

Administrative costs and contingency reserve are not part of the list of costs that can be chosen when filling in worksheet 4: this means that only direct costs can be considered to fulfill the “50%” rule. Indirect costs and contingency reserve will be counted only if directly managed by Applicants and partners coming from Mediterranean Partner Countries (therefore counted in worksheet 3 as part of the budget allocated to MPCs).
