Funding area J Regional coordination

Regional coordination is the link between the labor market policy measures of the REGIO AKTIV guideline and the regional actors in the Landkreis Börde. The aim is to effectively improve the effectiveness and efficiency in the individual funding areas. The regional coordination is to be established as the office of the regional working group and integrated into the structure of the local government.

A regional working group (RAK) is a prerequisite for the regional structuring of the funding. The RAK is the central body of the rationalized labor market policy. In cooperation with the Regional Working Group, the Regional Coordination has to fulfill the following tasks in particular:

  • Analysis of the initial situation and the need for action in the Landkreis Börde
  • Development of common goals
  • Identification of the need for support under consideration of coherence
  • Implementation of competitive procedures for the selection of projects to be funded in cases where the local authority itself is not the recipient of the funding
  • Monitoring and contribution to quality assurance of the selected projects by the RAK or suitable monitoring committees formed for this purpose
  • Promotion of the sustainability of project results
  • Organization of cooperation with relevant local actors, cooperation across programs and jurisdictions.

In accordance with the "REGIO AKTIV" guideline, the "Regional Coordination" (REKO BOE) is funded by the European Social Fund Plus and the state of Saxony-Anhalt.

Funding period according to the grant notice (21.07.2022) of the Saxony-Anhalt State Administration Office: 01.07.2022 - 30.06.2028.
