Summary/Abstract: This report examines the errors and omissions of the beneficiaries, which hindered and delayed absorption of operational programs financed by the Cohesion Fund and the Structural Funds of the EU in the first programming period 2007-2013 and reduced the expected effectiveness of the resulting grant resources. These are presented as weaknesses in the preparation of project proposals, as well as irregularities in the implementation phase of projects already approved. At the beginning of the second seven-year planning period analysis of errors and omissions made is necessary to achieve a higher absorption of the agreed resource and noted significant progress in key areas such as economy, health, education, science, employment, environment.
