EUROPEAN CIVIL PROTECTION AND HUMANITARIAN AID OPERATIONS

WORKING WITH DG ECHO AS AN NGO PARTNER | 2021 - 2027

CO-BENEFICIARIES

MGA

Co-beneficiaries accede to the grant only by signing the accession form (Annex 3 to the MGA). Only the coordinator signs the grant agreement.

Partners have the possibility to provide information on their VAT status as well as co beneficiaries’ VAT status, in the dedicated section of the Single Form, namely 13.8.1 –
Details on VAT exemption. 

CONSORTIUM

Partners are jointly responsible for the technical implementation of the action. If one of  them fails to implement its part, the other beneficiaries must ensure that this part is 
implemented by another beneficiary. Also, the consortium can request to the  Commission the termination of the participation of one or more beneficiaries in the  action. 

CONSORTIUM

Yes, with an amendment request that the Commission has to approve.

CONSORTIUM

The responsibility will be shared according to the maximum amount of the beneficiary. 

CONSORTIUM

No, DG ECHO doesn’t ask for such an agreement, but although it is not obligatory,  Partners involved in a Multi-beneficiary agreement would normally sign some kind of  consortium agreement reflecting the internal arrangements

CONSORTIUM

The coordinator receives the EU contribution and distributes the funds to the other  beneficiaries without unjustified delay (which does not mean immediately upon receipt 
from the Commission!). The coordinator is the interlocutor between the consortium and  the Commission, monitors the implementation of the action, submits reports, etc. 

Yes. The MGA contains an article with applicable provisions to International  Organisations. 

CONSORTIUM

All certified partners are on an equal footing, even though they will still have a  coordinator. All non-certified partners will be considered as implementing partners. 

CONSORTIUM

Not at the level of the grant agreement, as only DG ECHO certified partners can accede  to it. Local NGOs can be implementing partners.
