Designing the Bulgaria-the former Yugoslav Republic
of Macedonia IPA CBC Programme 2014-2020
Lessons learnt from 2007-2013
programming:






Strategy is backed by a sound and
well-grounded socio-economic analysis
Clear demarcation between spheres of
interventions and between Priority axes
to be ensured
A border region tourism strategy which
outlines destinations and services for
tourism development
Soft measures and investments are
well balanced
Horizontal principles duly considered
programming and will be developed
during OP’s life-cycle
More tailored and accountable
indicators, including methods for
baseline and target values, also broken
down in categories where possible
Involvement of stakeholders:





Develop strategies and propose
actions adhering to cross-border
needs and demands
Strengthening a sense of collective
ownership of Community Policies
Participatory pathway enabling a
wide participation of cross-border
stakeholders (Main steps: on-line
surveys, Regional Consultative Forum,
on-line consultations on Draft OP
(versions 1.0 and 2.0)
Stakeholders
informed
about
outcomes and tackling methods
On-line instruments and periodic

Ex-ante evaluation main findings:
Horizontal principles
Programming phase
 Horizontal principles duly
taken into consideration in
preparatory works and
 Participatory pathway
 Dialogue with the Ex ante
Evaluator
Programme
implementation
 Horizontal principles will
be taken into account in
the quality assessment for
project selection
 Monitor horizontal
principles at programme
and project level
 Breakdown indicators
(where possible)

Ex-ante evaluation main findings:
Financial allocation
Financial weighting took into
account lessons learned and
needs assessment
Financial allocation seems to be
coherent, balanced and
appropriate
Financial breakdown per Priority
is consistent with identified
challenges and needs

Ex-ante evaluation main findings:
Indicators, monitoring and evaluation 1/2
Indicators
Baseline and target value



The choice of foreseeing one Result
Indicator (RI) for each expected
result is sharable, though they must
prove not to be overambitious
The S.M.A.R.T. analysis proved result
and output indicators’ suitability to
monitor and verify Programme’s
achievements. Nonetheless, some
rooms



Programme specific result indicators’
baseline values established where
possible on past experience and budget,
others to be established through ad hoc
surveys
Output indicators’ target values have
been established paying attention to
envisaged activities, past experience
and budget allocation
Need for further clarification on methods
for calculating targets
Definition of Strategic Projects (and
related requirements, scope and budget)
essential for fine tuning the targets

Administrative capacity
Collection of data and evaluation





The functions and responsibilities
of the bodies in charge of the
management system are in line with
the regulatory framework and well
described
The indicative list of members of the
JMC identify which are the institutions
and organizations which will take part
in the work of this body, though it
must be completed
These adjustments should lead to the
simplification of the JMC
The Programme may involve advisory
bodies in the work of the JMC

The arrangements for the management
and control system are explained in
detail and are well structured, with a
delimitation between institutional and
procedural parts
More detailed/clearer criteria still need
to be identified for selecting Strategic
Projects
