EuropeAid Project Cycle Management Guidelines
These Guidelines have been prepared for the European Commission by the staff of the Aid Delivery Methods
Helpdesk with the support of, and input from, a significant number of staff within the European Aid
Cooperation Office (EuropeAID).
The work was directed by EuropeAID’s Unit O3, which is responsible for Innovation, Thematic Research, the
Quality Support Group and Financing Committees.
The previous PCM manual of 2001 and the PCM Handbook of 2002 have been important source documents.
