(warning) NEW since (22/09/2016) (Sygma 6.1):

  • The field "No Contribution Requested?" is now called "Participates as 'not receiving EU funding' and it is a check box.
  • It has been clarified who is entitled to participate as 'not receiving EU funding':
    • Only beneficiaries or third parties established in an OCEF country (OCEF = Other Countries which get Exceptional Funding) are entitled to participate as 'not receiving EU funding'; the system will automatically preselect the check box for those participants. Exceptionally, those participants might be entitled to receive EU funding; in this case, the project officer of the project should agree and only him is allowed to deselect the check box.
    • Beneficiaries/linked third parties not receiving EU funding participate in the action but will NOT receive any EU funding. For such beneficiaries the tasks should be described in Annex 1 and the estimated costs should be mentioned in the separate column in Annex 2. These costs will however not be reimbursed or taken into account for the calculation of the grant.
      Attention!!  Unlike before 22/09/2016, participants NOT established in an OCEF country (e.g. Member State or Associated country) are NOT entitled to participate as 'not receiving EU funding'. There is NO exceptional handling of this rule. However, they can request ZERO max. grant amount; the system does not block it anymore.

(warning) NEW since (13/10/2016) (Sygma 6.1.7): Before "only beneficiaries or third parties established in an OCEF country" (OCEF=Other Countries which get Exceptional Funding) were entitled to participate as 'not receiving EU funding'. Now, also "International Organisations (IOs) of non-EU interest" are entitled to participate as 'not receiving EU funding'.

(warning) NEW since (xx/08/2017) (Sygma 8.1): For CSA/RIA/IA: a distinction is being made between Partners (Beneficiaries and Linked Third Parties) eligible for funding but requesting zero funding and those that are not eligible for funding. 

  • Consequently:
    • in the first case, the "requesting zero funding" has to be flagged by the Partner or the Project Officer (PO) 

Image Added

    • in the second case, the "not eligible to receive funding" flag is automatically set (for Other Countries which receive Exceptional Funding (OCEF) and International Organisations (IOs)) and only the PO can deselect the check box 

Image Added

  • In both cases, the setting of the flag leads to the activation of Article 9 in the GA Options screen. In particular, this article is automatically activated for Partners not eligible for funding (typically partners from OCEF countries and International Organisations).

  • When the "requesting zero funding" check box is selected, a simplified Cost Breakdown table will appear allowing the editing only of the Total costs. In case the user had filled in the rest of the Cost Breakdown information, this will be wiped out, except for the Total Costs (as the Cost breakdown information is not displayed).

Linked International Partner

The Linked International Partners of Coordinator/beneficiary are not automatically imported from the Proposal Submission tool (SEP).

     (lightbulb) Please enter all necessary information:

Add a new International Partner (International Partners may only come from countries not eligible for funding). An International Partner of a Beneficiary cannot appear as a Beneficiary in the same project, neither as a Linked Third Party for the same Beneficiary.

The International Partners are linked to the new Article 14a of the Model Grant Agreement, for which there is also a new corresponding GA Option. If an International Partner is added, the GA Option "Art. 14a - International Partners" is automatically checked.

Please note that "Joint Several Liability" can be edited only by EU Officers. You are also able to replace or delete an international partner.

Linked International Partner- Partner summary

Add all needed information in the Partner summary screen: edit Short name, add Partner Costs (including non-EU funded) and, if necessary, add department.
