Have your say on EU financial rules!

The European Commission has launched a public consultation inviting beneficiaries and managers of public funds to send in their views on how to make the rules for grants and contracts more effective for everyone.
This is especially important as the EU begins to prepare the ground for a new generation of programmes in 2014.
