Are we sure that twinning is the best instrument in order to meet
these deficiencies and needs

Are the indicators which show the mandatory results are attained
at the end of the project correctly defined (concrete, measurable
etc.)
•
Is the subject of the twinning relevant with the acquis? (Priorities
defined in AP, NPAA, Benchmarks)

3. Twinning experience
• Lack of logistical support of beneficiaries,
• Insufficient ownership and political support,
• Extra workload of experts due to other responsibilities at
beneficiary institutions,
• Unsatisfactory ambition for coordination with other
institutions,
26
Government of the Republic of Macedonia
Secretariat for European Affairs
PROBLEMS WE FACE
• Sustainability problem of project teams
•Language problem with MS team
•Technically unsatisfactory STEs
•Strict twinning rules, detailed and long procedures
27
WHAT WE LEARNT
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Government of the Republic of Macedonia
Secretariat for European Affairs
Choosing the right instrument
Realistic results
Making a good selection
Be careful against consortium
Importance of political support and ownership
Cooperation between institutions in Macedonia
Joint exercise and different from Technical
Assistance
28
WHAT WE LEARNT
Government of the Republic of Macedonia
Secretariat for European Affairs
The RTA forms the core of a twinning project:
Daily involvement/expertise
Coordination of all activities
Ensures the smooth project implementation
Ensures continuity of results
RTA faces a complex challenge - professional,
managerial, personal
RTA should not be responsible for logistics and
accounting
Good specialist knowledge of the sector
Good management skills, but not manager only
29
WHAT WE LEARNT
Government of the Republic of Macedonia
Secretariat for European Affairs
• Team work culture,
• Beneficiary shall know exactly what they
want,
• Preparing more detailed contracts,
• We learned the procedures,
• Flexibility of twinning rules (language
assistants, seminar venues..)
30
Government of the Republic of Macedonia
Secretariat for European Affairs
What is important is
the added value and multiplier effect created
by the successful implementation of a
twinning project
not the amount of fund provided by twinning!

4.TAIEX
• TAIEX instrument in the Republic of Macedonia is considered
as very useful friendly tool.
• In order to increase the number of TAIEX applications,
contact points are nominated in the line ministries and in the
other state institutions.
• The role of these contact points is focused on detailed
informing about the possibilities that this instrument is
offering, as well as about the raising of the level of its use.
