Here's a challenge, decode this one from a government funding website...

"Ensure your project fits with the agreed Strategic Frameworks, which are operational strategies that focus on the types of interventions that will best deliver on the Priorities in the Operational Programmes".

i can see meanings of sorts but my best advice would be contact your local mp or some legal type who may be able to decifer it for you rather than people like me throwing in educated guesses and may be way off base
