ESF Information Memo 02/21 - advice around part-time hours

Advice to ESF programme 2014-2020 project promoters around claiming of part-time hours.

Dear Project Promoter,

European Social Fund Northern Ireland logo containing text "European Union, European Social Fund, Northern Ireland"

As we are beginning the run down into the final months of this financial year, can we ask that all projects remember to only claim part time hours up to the available funding level as noted in Column O of your claim form. This will help prevent pre-payment irregularities which create additional administrative checking and recording of deductions to claims.

Please therefore ensure if a negative figure appears in ‘Column O’ of the claim form this should be corrected prior to submission.

If you have any queries please contact


Annie McGowan
Head of ESF Project Delivery Branch
