New reporting tool FORCE

With "FORCE" a new web based editor of forms C was made available for the financial reporting in FP6 and 7 projects.

Like the questionnaires due with the initial and final reporting and the new dissemination tool PIDS, it is accessible via the SESAM system.

From now on, the use of FORCE is mandatory for the financial reporting in FP7 projects (except for projects under the auspices of DG INFSO such as ICT projects). Partners in FP6 projects can choose whether they want to use FORCE or as before excel sheets offline.

Key services of FORCE include the preparation of FP6 and FP7 FORMS C with updated and correct contract/grant information of each beneficiary participating in the project/grant, the printing of Forms C and their electronic submission of FORMS C to the Commission (signed paper version to be sent afterwards). Also the correction of Forms C after refusal by the EC will be possible.

For the time being, only coordinators (should) have received the necessary passwords to access FORCE; regular beneficiaries should receive their own access rights in the coming weeks.

How to register on FORCE and how to use the new tool for your reporting, is shown in a presentationmade available by the EC.
