SHORT DESCRIPTION OF THE NATIONAL FLC SYSTEM
Albania opted for a centralised control system. The Ministry of Finance and Economy is responsible for the FLC control system.
Controls are carried out free of charge for the partners.
On-the-spot verifications conducted by FLCS
On-the-spot checks are not mandatory in Albania and are organised on a random sample of operations.
In the framework of Interreg MED Programme we recommend using “Procedures and practical guide” (PRAG) by public and private partners. Albania applies specific rules for public procurement, but these rules are not applicable for the beneficiaries of IPA programmes, who apply PRAG rules.
National rules applicable: www.app.gov.al
