The main obstacles faced by new EU members, among which is found and Romania, are reflected in reduced ability to efficiently use the allocated funds, the lack of experience in developing large scale projects to European standards, lack of transparency in the organization auctions, and the low level of understanding of the methods by which to access European funding. This article aims to conduct an analysis of absorption of funds under the Operational Programmes in Romania.
