Nótaí Breise:

  • Mar atá an cás le gach iarratas a fhaigheann BSÉ, déanfar measúnú ar gach iarratas ag baint leasa as na Prionsabail agus Critéir ghinearálta de chuid BSÉ, le béim ar leith ar láidreacht eagarthóireachta na scripte, cúlra na foirne chruthaitheacha, dúil an mhargaidh, féidearthacht an bhuiséad léiriúcháín agus an phlean airgeadais, chomh maith le hullmhacht an tionscadail le dul i mbun léiriúcháin.
  • Ní féidir leis an mhaoiniú iomlán a bhronann BSÉ (an tacaíocht bhreisithe seo san áireamh) a bheith níos mó ná an méid a leagtar síos sna Rialacháin agus Teorainneacha stáit-faomhaithe de chuid BSÉ (65% den bhuiséad iomlán i bhformhor na gcásanna). Ba chóir go gcloífidh an maoiniú iomlán a bhronann BSÉ leis na treoirlínte maidir le Caiteachas Ceadaithe Éireannach.

Moltar d’iarratasóirí súil a chaitheamh ar an eolas ar fad faoi Cláir Mhaoinithe ar shuíomh gréasáin BSÉ sula dhéantar iarratas, agus ar an chóras iarratais ginearálta agus ar na spriocdhátaí le teacht.
