Communication n With Commission l l Annual progress report: priority was given to reporting

Communication n With Commission l l Annual progress report: priority was given to reporting by the Commission Other administrative and financial beyond the annual reporting activities were not taken into account, also not after telephone calls: • the need for a new contract (NGB -> Nord. Gen ; USOFA out of the project and KIS is taking over budget and responsibilities of USOFA; 10% ceiling rule has been violated in the ‘other cost’ item) • e-mails concerning financial amendments are not answered. • reason: understaffing?
