The amount of the grant shall not become final until the Commission has accepted the Final reports and verified the payment request presented by the Humanitarian Organisation, without prejudice to the rules of record-keeping and recovery.
Together with the Final reports and supporting documentation, the Humanitarian Organisation shall submit a payment request identifying the amounts pre-financed by the Commission, the expenditure engaged by the Humanitarian Organisation and the balance requested from the Commission. Following the acceptance of the Final reports, the Commission shall verify the eligibility of the costs claimed by the Humanitarian Organisation. The information submitted by the Humanitarian Organisation must be sufficiently detailed in order to allow the Commission to formulate an opinion on the eligibility of costs.
No tacit approval of the payment request can be presumed on expiry of the payment deadline.
