As announced already in the February edition of the newsletter before the ASR submission all existing Specific Grant Agreements (SGAs) will be amended in order to reflect the FPA amendment, and in particular to mirror that the Coordinator as SDA AISBL became a legal entity as from 1st of January 2018 onwards.
For this activity no further action is necessary on your side necessary, but you will be kept informed about the next steps and promptly notified after receipt of the signed documents which will be uploaded to the FPA Repositories of the respective Actions.
It needs to be highlighted that this round of SGA amendments does not include any requests from IPP-side. As agreed with INEA the sole reason for this round of amendment is the change of coordinator which needs to be reflected in the SGAs.
Following the submission and INEA notification of the Action Status Report (ASR) assessment finalization, SDM will submit all received and validated amendment requests, including respective supporting documents, to the INEA in order to launch the yearly round of amendments in accordance with the amendment process. The amendment process was introduced during the Kick-Off Meeting for the Call 2016 and the Annual Meetings for the Call 14 and the Calls 15 held in November last year in Brussels. For further information, please refer to the SDM Transversal Guidelines for Action execution processes released on 22nd of December 2017 (chapter 4.1 SGA Amendment Process).
