PURPOSE: to present the draft amending budget 6/2007 as established by the Council.

CONTENT: on 3 November 2006, the Commission forwarded to the Council Preliminary Draft Amending Budget (PDAB) No. 6/2006 to the general budget for 2006. At that time the figures therein were still to be considered provisional.

Thus, the Commission proposed to present the updated amounts affecting the revenue and the expenditure sides at a later stage of the procedure.

The final amounts to be taken into consideration were communicated to the Budget Authority on 17 November 2006.

The final version of this PDAB takes into account the following:

§ the need to budget a substantial increase in the forecast of revenue concerning the revision of the forecasts of VAT and GNI balances, traditional own resources and other revenue ( EUR 2 668 million ); accordingly to this proposed revision Member States will reduce their contributions based on the GNI;

§ the need for a decrease of payment appropriations in budget lines for Headings 1, 2 and 7 ( EUR 4 706 million ), after taking into account redeployments from other Headings proposed in the global transfer.

Additionally, the Commission proposes the modification of the remarks of budget article 1 1 1 concerning the sugar storage, as well as of article 13 03 08 - European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), Technical assistance and innovative measures.

According to the final Commission proposal on PDAB No. 6/2006, total contributions from Member States to the 2006 budget will be thus reduced by EUR 7 374 million .

On 30 November 2006, the Council established - on this basis - Draft Amending Budget No. 6 for the financial year 2006 as set out in the technical annex to this explanatory memorandum (refer to Council document 15635/2006 ).

The committee adopted the report by Giovanni PITTELLA (PES, IT) adopting the Council's Draft Amending Budget No. 6/2006 unamended. The committee noted that "the regular and systematic underestimation of revenue with all its effects should be considered as an issue deserving further scrutiny" and that the low level of implementation of payments that were adopted in the annual budgetary procedure remains a constant cause for concern. It reminded the Commission of "its responsibility to do its utmost to implement payments as adopted by the budgetary authority within the framework of the annual budgetary procedure".

PURPOSE: to present the Preliminary Draft Amending Budget No 6 to the General Budget 2006.

CONTENT: the Commission presents this Preliminary Draft Amending Budget (PDAB) No 6 for the year 2006 (Section III-Commission) to take into account the following exceptional circumstances:

- the need to budget a substantial increase in the forecast of revenue, in particular for the revision of the forecasts of VAT and GNI balances and traditional own resources ( EUR 2 470 million );

- the need for a decrease of payment appropriations in budget lines for the following Headings:

§ 1a: EAGGF-Guarantee : the Commission has identified for sub-heading 1a a significant surplus of appropriations, for which this PDAB proposes to annul the commitments where there is an important excess of the budget. The under-utilisation is due to more favourable developments of agricultural markets in 2005/2006 also relates to some agricultural direct aids so that savings are generated;

§ 2: Structural Funds and Cohesion Fund : this PDAB proposes a reduction of EUR 2 500 million in payment appropriations. The bulk of the downward revision sought by this PDAB concerns the 2000-2006 Structural Funds programmes and is linked to the Spanish payment claims. This may lead the Commission to revise the figure in the course of the procedure concerning this PDAB;

§ 7: Pre-accession : essentially due to the under-utilisation of expenditure relating to SAPARD, ISPA and the aid programme for Cyprus.

The total reduction of payment appropriations for all the headings amounts EUR 3 906 million , after taking into account redeployments from other headings proposed in the global transfer.

- the Commission proposes the modification of the remarks of budget article 1 1 1 concerning the sugar storage, as well as of article 13 03 08 – European Development Fund (ERDF), Technical assistance and innovative measures.

Overall, the budget shall be reduced by EUR 860 million in commitment appropriations and EUR 3 906 million in payment appropriations.
