As a general rule, the partner is requested to submit an interim report three months before the end of the action.
The objective of the interim report is to let ECHO know where the action stands, whether everything is on track and if non essential changes have been introduced.
Moreover, the interim report is an important management and monitoring tool, which allows for the comparison of the intended objectives with actual achievements.
This report should cover the whole Action regardless the DG ECHO contribution, in principle up to one month before its submission.
When the Interim Report is required the partner will find the timing for its submission in the Article 4.1 of the Agreement.
By default the Interim Report is not required (unless it is operationally justified) in the following cases:
short actions with a duration of less than 10 months.
HOW TO DRAFT THE INTERIM REPORT
To draft the Interim Report, the Partner should create the document in Appel, follow the Single Form Offline - Online workflow, filling in only the field marked with INT. and then submit it through APPEL.
