This study was undertaken in the framework of preparations for the programming period 2014-2020 to inform the process of impact assessment of the legislative proposals for EU cohesion policy.

Its main objective is to assess the impact that various modifications to the regulatory framework of EU Cohesion Policy in force in 2007-2013 may have on the administrative costs and burden of ERDF and CF in the period post 2014.

The study was launched in November 2010 and was finalised in January 2012.

Results are presented as absolute figures or as percentage changes compared to the baseline established for the period 2007-2013. The baseline for administrative costs of national and regional authorities was established by the study mapping the administrative costs of the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and the Cohesion Fund (CF) - hereafter SWECO (2010). The baseline for the administrative burden of beneficiaries in 2007-2013 was updated within the framework of the current study.
