In order to be approved and funded, a project must be properly prepared according  to the financing guide's requests.


In most cases, applicants lose funding or they are exposed to extra costs for the preparation and submission of certain documents, due to an inadequate initial preparation of the project.


To avoid these unwanted and costly situations, the following steps are required:

1. Analysis of the eligibility conditions, both for the applicant and for the  project activities

2. Score's calculation and identifying solutions to increase its maximum level

3. Verification of project eligibility and scoring calculation with intermediate bodies, through a written correspondence with them

4. Preparation of the documentation for funding under  the guideline requirements (content, numbering, signing, stamping, etc.).



In order to prepare and develop a project, an entity needs both a team of specialized consultants and

a team of techincal specialists.


The contracting of these two types of services must be conditioned by the regulations of GO

34/2006, amended and supplemented by specific legislation and services, such as GD 28 January



Achieving the results established by the project, the cost efficiency or the execution period during

the project are determined by a close and constructive relationship with the design team and / or



Therefore,  we recommend contracting the design services, both for the feasibility study phase and for the engineering phase; the consulting services must be contracted for both preparation and submission for project funding and implementation.

According to HG 28/2008, Feasability Study Design phase includes:
- Topographical study, conducted in 70 STEREO coordinates system, endorsed by OCPI;
- Geotechnical study including drilling fiches;
- Technical expertise, if necessary;
- Feasibility study or the approval documentation of interventions, depending on the nature of the proposed investment (this part includes: technical description, drawings and the cost-benefit analysis);

If the elaborator of the feasibility study is not able to prepare the cost-benefit analysis, it must be contracted separately and subtracted from the price of the Feasibility Study.

Preparing the documentation required for obtaining the Certificate of Urbanism is a task for the elaborator of the Feasibility Study.

It is recommended that all the chapters listed above to be included  in the design services contract.

It is also recommended that the payment of consulting and design services to be conditioned by the project's administrative and eligibility compliance (verification at the location of project's implementation).


Both teams of consultants and designers have the duty to support the beneficiary throughout the project’s selection verification and they should make additions / changes when necessary for the submitted documentation.

Consulting and design costs are eligible up to a maximum of 10% of the project's eligible value. Including these costs in the project's budget is required, otherwise the beneficiary will have to bear those costs.
