This study is aiming to outline the entrepreneurs’ opinions regarding to the effect of the Intermediary Management Agencies (IMAs) and the subsidy Operational Programmes (OPs) in the concretisation of their investments. More specific, the study aims into the acquisition of knowledge and information about important subjects of the Operational Programme “Competitiveness” - Action 2.11.2 that concern the modernisation and development of enterprises that belong to the Tertiary Sector of the Central Macedonia Region, such as: Programme’s contribution in the development of enterprises and the Greek economy, the entrepreneurs’ opinion about the Intermediary Management Agencies in the process of their investments’ completion and finally, the exploration of other interesting elements that had significantly contributed in the investments’ completion. This research constitutes a first effort to evaluate Operational Programmes of the 3rd Community Support Framework (CSF) that its results will be published, in opposition of the forecasted ex-ante or ex-post evaluations that are produced in the frames of each Intermediary Management Agency’s obligations on behalf of the empowered National and Community Committee. In other words, the results of this research will contribute in the activation of an essential dialogue and most important will contribute in the pursued more effective exploitation of the available resources. Taking into consideration the occasional reports of the empowered Community Authorities about Greek Intermediary Management Agencies’ weaknesses, among other countries, in the field of rational management and exploitation of the Community resources, we mainly consider particularly useful and topical the discoveries of this research facing the imminent launch of the 4th CSF Operational Programmes.
