Requests for amendments must be submitted by the Partner no later than one month before the end of the implementing period of the Action
, except in duly justified cases. In order for an amendment to be considered concluded in a timely fashion, and thus for the respective amendment method to apply, the process of granting approval for the amendment must be concluded before the end of the implementing period of the Action.
In order to avoid successive amendments, amendment requests will be regrouped in one amendment when possible.
DG ECHO will normally reply to request for amendments within 30 days of the receipt of the request.
After the submission of the final report no formal modification or amendment will be done. However, requests for changes to the Agreement submitted with or after the final report (but anyhow before the payment order is launched) may be considered by DG ECHO, and if accepted, they will be taken into account in the final liquidation. The Partner will be informed by means of the payment advice sent after liquidation.
Three methods are available for amending Agreements: unilateral modifications, exchanges of letters and Supplementary Agreements.
