 The Expected Project Outcomes

It is expected that the activities of this project as a whole will provide improvement in the process quality of the PCM and enhance the outcomes of the IPA projects both quantitative and qualitative manner in the direction of the objective of EU-TR financial cooperation. Specifically, the quantitative improvement is expected to be ensured via tackling the fund losses and backlog through decreasing the duration of contract (tender, grant, twinning) document preparation process, document rejection rates and cancellation rate of the contracting processes; and the qualitative improvement is expected to be ensured via tackling the quality losses through increasing the focus and sources on the quality of the contracts and contract implementation with the improvement of quantitative concerns. Thus, the projects funded by the EU-Turkey financial cooperation will be implemented more efficiently and effectively to improve the outcomes of the contract implementation, which would in return provide added value for Turkish and EU tax payers.
