Developing ‘Off-the-Shelf’ Simplified Cost Options (SCOs) under Article 14.1 of the European Social Fund (ESF) regulation
The purpose of this study is to support the European Commission in its efforts to establish EU-level Simplified Cost Options (SCOs) under the Article 14.1 of the European Social Fund regulation. Such SCOs would be established for the following policy areas: training of the unemployed, provision of employment services (counselling of the unemployed), and training for people in employment (including public servants). The study report contains the methodological approach used to define SCOs, descriptions of the SCOs as well as unit costs estimated for each Member State. The SCOs descriptions... elaborate on the definitions, sampling techniques, calculation methods, and audit trails for reimbursement of costs.
