The monitoring system will be an important instrument in ensuring
strategy development within the framework of the programme. Periodic
reports and feedback to the various bodies involved in the programme
will provide the necessary information. The joint programme Secretariat
will be responsible for the management of this process.
this programme has a joint transnational character, there will be a need
to co-ordinate the activities. The management and implementation should
be based on a separate working programme. A budget to finance these
activities is compulsory. This budget also includes funding for
activities of a transnational nature, such as studies and the
dissemination of project results.
In general, technical assistance for IRMA is divided into three main categories:
activities of a more general nature to be carried out for the programme
as a whole under the supervision of the Steering Committee;
- the establishment and activities of a Joint Secretariat responsible for the day to day running of the programme;
- specific activities to be carried out by the national advisory boards for the implementation of IRMA.
