The regulations for projects funded by federal ministries differ depending on the respective project management agency. Most of the project management agencies have indicated:
that cancellation costs for travels are covered
that scanned letters (payment requests, interim statements, amendments and reports) are accepted as legally valid and that all correspondence may be sent by e-mail; the original documents, however, must be submitted afterwards
that, in individual cases, e.g. extensions of deadlines are possible
