Structural Funds Database

Structural Funds Database 2014-2020


The Structural Funds Database 2014-2020 (known in short as SFD 14-20) is a system developed for the Government of Malta for the management of the European Regional Development Fund, the European Social Fund and the Cohesion Fund, during the programming period 2014-2020. The SFD 14-20 has been developed by the Malta Information Technology Agency (MITA) and is now in its third generation following the Structural Funds Database 2004-2006 and the Structural Funds Database 2007-2013.


The SFD 14-20 is designed to manage Operational Programmes and operations in line with the requirements of Regulation (EU) No 1303/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council. The backbone of the SFD 14-20 is the financial mechanism for the management of funds from operation to invoice level.  The SFD 14-20 is used to record and store in computerised form data on each operation necessary for monitoring, evaluation, financial management, verification and audit. The database maintains accounting records in computerised form of expenditure declared to the Commission and keeps an account of amounts recoverable and of amounts withdrawn following cancellation of all or part of the contribution for an operation.


The database is a centralised system linked to the Cohesion Funds’ stakeholders, which include the Managing Authority, Audit Authority, Certifying Authority, Intermediate Bodies, Beneficiaries, Treasury, and the Line Ministries.
