Answered By: 
The Mayor

2014-20 ERDF projects are potentially subject to several levels of audit set out in European regulations: 'Article 125' checks by the GLA's European Programmes Management Unit, 'Article 127' checks by the Government Internal Audit Agency; and audits carried out by the European Commission and/or the European Court of Auditors.

No substantive issues (relating to GLA-funded programmes or otherwise) have been formally raised as yet. The outcomes of all EU-funding related audits are reported to the Assembly's Audit Panel.
