Meeting of the Monitoring Committee for the Border, Midland & Western Regional Operational Programme
The two Regional Assemblies as Managing Authorities for the ERDF co funded Operational Programmes in Ireland held a joint virtual programme monitoring committee on the 15th September to review progress from 2019.

As a result, the total amount of eligible expenditure entered into the accounting system of the certifying authority and certified by the authority across all priorities for the period 01/01/14 to 31/12/2018 as of 28th June 2019 was €81,930,283m.
