If you are planning to submit a proposal: Plan appropriate expenditures in “external assistance” or as “overheads” in overall budget;
If you are already executing a project: the costs of implementing and operating of eLMA in your project may be included as eligible overhead costs, provided that the total cost of this category does not exceed the limits set out in the Common Provisions (7% of eligible expenditure excluding land purchase/lease/one-off compensation costs).
