ESF Information Memo 10/21 - Section 75 monitoring

This memo provides guidance to project promoters around Section 75 monitoring.

Dear Project Promoter,

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

Further to ESF Memo 05/19 this is a reminder that the department is required to monitor and review the S75 composition of ESF project participants to inform future policy development and to ensure programmes are meeting their requirements under S75 of the NI Act 1998.

An online participant survey used to carry out this monitoring is available and can be found at:

You should provide a copy of this link to all current and future participants and encourage them to complete the survey. The survey requires the participant to record the IP they are participating under and projects should provide this with the link. Please also assure participants that no personal identification information will be requested or collected and that the survey should take no more than 5 minutes to complete.

The ESIF database provides a tick box option in the Project Participant Details section asking projects confirm that they have provided the participant with a link to the S75 survey. MA will use this information to monitor the compliance by projects in providing this link to participants.

If you have any queries relating to this please contact the team at:
