In December 2014 we started the initiative for Scanning of the Bulgarian Operational Programs regarding EU Funds for 2014-2020.


How does it work?

In case of scanning we search for “keywords” which can be:

  • Explicit (primary keywords) in text of the “status report”
  • Implicit reference (secondary keywords) in text of the “actions”
  • Explicit reference (cycling explicitly referred) in the text the actions
  • Indirect connection (suspect under general headings) in the text of the actions

In case we find an explicit reference at the actions we search for a separate amount for cycling.

In case we find any reference at the actions but no separate budget for cycling we estimate the budget for cycling based on the budget of the measure and the estimated share of cycling within that measure. In case of estimation we advise to be conservative.
