    Will SDM require a full set of documents (legal, compliance etc.) plus the actual project proposal per application?

    CliffVC edited question

      The Proposal(s) to be submitted in response to the CEF Transport Calls 2015 is composed of four parts (including their respective annexes) as follows:

      Application Form Part A identifies the main characteristics of the proposal (e.g. brief description of the proposed Action and its activities, contact details and characteristics of the applicants, as well as information related to the funding requested, the transport mode, placement on the network etc.).

      Application Form Part B provides administrative information about the applicants, their designated affiliated entities and their financial capacity.

      Application Form Part C provides information on the compliance of the proposed Action with EU law in the fields of environmental protection, interoperability, state aid, road charging, public procurement, and other sources of EU funding.

      Application Form Part D provides technical and financial information on the Action submitted for funding.

      All the information and documentation to be provided to the SDM are included in the “SDM Guidelines for the CEF Transport Call 2015” available on the SDM website under following link:
