WORKING WITH DG ECHO AS AN NGO PARTNER | FPA 2014 - 2020
TERMINATION OF THE SPECIFIC GRANT AGREEMENT
The Termination of the Agreement can be done by:
EFFECTS OF TERMINATION
Effects of termination of the SGA are the same regardless whether it is ECHO or the partner who terminates the SGA. Payment by the Commission shall be limited to the amount determined on the basis of:
the eligible costs incurred by the Partner;
the actual level of implementation of the Action on the date of termination.
The Specific Grant Agreement shall continue to apply even after the termination, to the extent necessary to allow for the payment of the balance. Costs relating to current commitments, which are not due for execution until after the termination, shall not be taken into account.
The partner has to send its request for payment within 60 calendar days after the termination. If this is not done, ECHO may recover what was already paid to the partner. The possibility of 60 calendar days to send the request for payment will not be given to such a partner that has the SGA terminated due to not producing final payment request within the deadline required, after being already reminded by ECHO.
In those cases where the SGA is terminated improperly by the partner or the SGA is terminated because the partner did not implement the Action properly, or if the partner committed grave professional misconduct, corruption, fraud, or any illegal activity, ECHO may also apply financial penalties proportionate to the gravity of the situation.
