The process of selecting the project provider takes place in two-steps. In July prior to the year training will begin, the Federal Employment Agency as the granting authority publishes a call for submission of project proposals. After this, project proposals can be submitted to the granting authority until 30 September. This is followed by the application process.
With the submission of the project proposal, the measures planned for the trainee in the country of origin and in Germany are to be presented as an integrated plan of action which clearly shows how the goal of "successfully completing training" should be achieved. This must show the expenses necessary for the planned measures.
The project proposals are evaluated by the Federal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs and by the Federal Employment Agency. With the agreement of both sides, external expertise, for example, coordinators of the Bundesländer support programme "Integration through Qualification", may be drawn into the process to give advice.
Project outlines which have not been selected cannot be used for an application.
Before or on 15 November of the year prior to training, the granting authority informs the candidates whether they have been selected.
