Within the reporting period covered by this Final Management Report (1 July 2005 - 31 December 2006) the following deviations from cost budget and from person-month budget incurred for the project partners WIP, OME, NERC and ANME:

The deviation of actual indirect costs of partner WIP from the budgeted indirect costs (indicated in the tabular overview of budgeted costs and actual costs) was due to the fact that for the initial budget calculation a 20% flat overhead rate was used for this partner using the FC Cost Model.

The deviation of actual indirect costs of partner OME from the budgeted indirect costs was due to the fact that for the initial budget calculation a 20% flat overhead rate was used for this partner using the FC Cost Model.

The deviation of actual indirect costs of partner NERC from the budgeted indirect costs was due to the fact that for the initial budget calculation a 20% flat overhead rate was used for this partner using the FC Cost Model.

The actual Total Costs of the partner OME exceeded its budgeted Total Costs due to the indirect cost calculation addressed above, and the fact that OME dedicated more effort to the implementation of HYPA project tasks as were originally foreseen, such as major contributions to the organisation to the final synergy workshop in Marrakech (WP3) and contributions to the socio-economic impact assessments for MPC (WP4).

With respect to consortium partner ANME deviations from cost budget and from person-month budget occurred for the following reason:
- In the first Cost Statement covering the period 1 July 2005 to 30 June 2007 the consortium partner ANME did not include any personnel costs. This was due to the fact that at this time ANME was involved in an internal discussion how to deal with the costs of personnel involved in the implementation of projects co-financed by the European Commission. At the time of submission of the First Financial report of the HYPA project, ANME did not include personnel costs as it was decided to wait until this matter was clarified within ANME.

It was later clarified that ANME was allowed to include the costs of personnel in the cost statements of the HYPA project. Therefore the costs of ANME personnel working for the HYPA project during the first project period were included under adjustment in the second project period.

Furthermore, during the revision process of the financial reporting for the HYPA project it was discovered that there was a mistake in the first project period regarding the conversion rate. Instead of the conversion rate of 1 July 2006 the conversion rate of 1 July 2005 was used. This mistake was corrected and the correction included under adjustment of the second project period.
