In consortium with ACZ Consulting, t33 is charge for carrying out the ex-ante evaluation of the Romanian Operational Programme for Maritime Affairs and Fisheries 2014-2020 funded by the EMFF (the fund for the EU's maritime and fisheries policies for 2014-2020).
The ex-ante evaluation is a legal requirement of the EC regulation for the 2014-2020 programming period but is also an exercise needed in order to assure the best use of the available funds. The ex-ante evaluation should assess whether:
1. needs have been diagnosed correctly;
2. the strategy and objectives proposed are relevant to those needs;
3. the approach proposed is coherent and consistent with EU policies and guidelines;
4. the assumptions concerning expected results and impacts are realistic and in line with the resources available.
