On 13 April 2007, the Commission submitted to the Council Preliminary Draft Amending Budget (PDAB) No. 3 to the general budget for 2007 concerning agencies.

This Commission proposal aimed to:

set the necessary budgetary structure and allocations to allow for the financing of the Executive Agency for Competitiveness and Innovation, the successor of the existing Intelligent Energy Executive Agency, including modification of its establishment plan (16 additional temporary posts); modify the budgetary structure and the establishment plan (the net impact of which is 3 additional temporary posts) of the Executive Agency for Education, Audiovisual and Culture following the extension of its mandate; modify the establishment plan (the net impact of which is 3 additional temporary posts) of Eurojust following the expansion of its tasks and functions; modify the establishment plan (upgradings combined with deletion of 4 temporary posts) of the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights, the successor of the European Monitoring Centre on Racism and Xenophobia; modify the establishment plan (15 additional temporary posts) of the European Agency for the Management of the Operational Cooperation at the External Borders of the Members States of the European Union (Frontex) following the revision of its Work Programme 2007.

The proposed changes in the budgetary structure, adjustments of allocations and modifications of the establishment plans do not have any net budgetary impact.

At the close of its examination, the Budget Committee agreed, by a qualified majority, to suggest that the Permanent Representatives Committee advise the Council to:

establish Draft Amending Budget No. 4 to the general budget for 2007 on the basis of the Commission's PDAB No. 3/2007 (regarding this numbering, PDAB No. 3/2007 becomes DAB No. 4/2007 for procedural reasons); instruct the Presidency to prepare the budgetary documents to be sent to the European Parliament.

PURPOSE: to present the Preliminary Draft Amending Budget (PDAB) No 3 to the 2007 budget.

CONTENT: the purpose of the present PDAB 3/2007 is to:

- set the necessary budgetary structure and allocations to allow for the financing of the Executive Agency for Competitiveness and Innovation in 2007;

- amend the budget structure as a result of the extension of the mandate of the Executive Agency for Education, Audiovisual and Culture;

- amend the establishment plans of three other agencies: Eurojust, the European Agency for Fundamental Rights and Frontex.

Executive agency for competitiveness and innovation: Council Regulation (EC) No 58/2003 of 19 December 2002 laying down the statute for executive agencies gives the Commission, assisted by a regulatory committee and subject to certain conditions, the power to use Community bodies with a legal personality (executive agencies) for the purpose of carrying out certain tasks relating to the management of Community programmes, including budget implementation tasks. This enables the Commission to dispose of sufficient technical expertise for the management of such programmes, to focus on its core activities, and to keep better control over the tasks it entrusts to outside bodies. The Commission has used this possibility by establishing the Intelligent Energy Executive Agency (IEEA) by Commission Decision 2004/20/EC of 23 December 2003, to manage the Community action in the field of energy carried out in the framework of the first Intelligent Energy–Europe programme.

Following a favourable opinion by the Regulatory Committee for Executive Agencies on 14 February 2007, Decision 2004/20/EC is now being amended to entrust the “Intelligent Energy Executive Agency” with certain management tasks related to the implementation of the second IEE programme (the successor of the current IEE programme that has been integrated into the CIP), and enlarging its area of activity to include certain management tasks related to the execution of the Entrepreneurship and Innovation Programme (EIP) and certain management tasks related to the Marco Polo II Programme.

In concrete terms this will mean an extension of the duration, the size and the remit of the existing IEEA as well as a new name “ Executive Agency for Competitiveness and Innovation ” in order to reflect the new programmes and tasks entrusted to the agency.

The present PDAB 3/2007 proposes to set the necessary budgetary structure and allocations to allow for the financing of the Executive Agency for Competitiveness and Innovation during the budget year 2007. Expenditure for the Executive Agency will be charged to the programmes indicated above, all covered by heading 1a of the Financial Framework 2007 – 2013.

More in detail and in line with the justification and financial statement presented by DG Budget to the Budget Authority, the general budget of the European Communities should finance in 2007 a total subsidy of EUR 9.7 million to the budget of the Executive agency , including the amount of EUR 5.3 already authorised in budget 2007 for the existing Executive agency .

The following new budget items have to be created:

02 01 04 30 – Executive Agency for Competitiveness and Innovation – Subsidy from the Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme – Entrepreneurship and Innovation Programme. 06 01 04 32 – Executive Agency for Competitiveness and Innovation – Subsidy from the Marco Polo II Programme.

The title of the existing budget item 06 01 04 30 will be amended as follows:

06 01 04 30 – Executive Agency for Competitiveness and Innovation – Subsidy from the Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme – 'Intelligent Energy – Europe' Programme.

The allocations of the following budget items will accordingly be adjusted:

02 01 04 04 – Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme – Entrepreneurship and Innovation Programme – Expenditure on administrative management. 02 02 01 – Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme – Entrepreneurship and Innovation Programme. 06 02 06 – Marco Polo II Programme. 06 04 06 – Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme 'Intelligent Energy – Europe' Programme

Modification of the budget structure of the executive agency for education, audiovisual and culture (EACEA): the mandate of the Executive Agency for Education, Audiovisual and Culture (EACEA) was extended by Commission Decision 2007/114/EC to include the management of the Youth, and Erasmus Mundus programmes in which IPA (Instrument for Pre-Accession) beneficiaries are involved. In order to accommodate this change within the budget structure, it is now proposed to create the following item in budget 2007: 22 01 04 30 Executive Agency for Education, Audiovisual and Culture — Subsidy for programmes of heading 4 in the enlargement policy.

At this point, it is proposed to enter a "p.m." on the line and 3 additional temporary agents shall be linked to the implementation of the Erasmus Mundus External Cooperation Window and the Erasmus Mundus Western Balkans Window which have been entrusted to the Agency by Commission Decision 2007/114/CE.

Modification of the establishment plan of EUROJUST: in the budget for 2007, the budgetary authority amended the amount for Eurojust, increasing it to EUR 18.4 million compared with the EUR 17 million which had been entered in the preliminary draft budget. In order to employ the level of appropriations authorised by the Budgetary Authority Eurojust asks to increase its staffing request from 144 to 147 posts. The planned number of 147 posts for the year 2007 results from the expansion of the tasks and functions to be carried out in both the operational and administrative areas of Eurojust. The proposed modifications do not have any budgetary effect.

Modification of the establishment plan of the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA): the transformation of the European monitoring Centre on Racism and Xenophobia (EUMC) into the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) brings along a wider mandate compared to the current structures of the EUMC. The new expert tasks will require the recruitment of more specialists at University level. Therefore the Agency proposes a better distribution of the posts between Administrators and Assistants, by upgrading of the Establishment Plan combined with a reduction of the total number of posts (from 50 to 46 posts). The proposed readjustment of the Establishment Plan will have no impact on the level of the budgetary appropriations.

Modification of the establishment plan of the European Agency for the management of the operational cooperation at the external borders of the Member States of the European Union (FRONTEX): in the budget for 2007, the budgetary authority placed an additional amount of EUR 12.8 million in the reserve for Frontex. The additional amount (+60%) was given to the Agency to allow it to better fulfil its tasks. However, no corresponding change was made to the establishment plan. The conditions for releasing the reserve relate to the work programme and the staff policy. The release of the additional funds in the reserve is necessary for Frontex to fulfil its activities set out in the revised Work Programme 2007. It is also necessary to increase the establishment plan from 34 to 49. For these reasons, it is proposed to amend the 2007 establishment plan of Frontex. The proposed modifications to the establishment plan are budgetary neutral.

In order to employ the level of appropriations authorised by the Budgetary Authority Eurojust asks to increase its staffing request from 144 to 147 posts. The planned number of 147 posts for the year 2007 results from the expansion of the tasks and functions to be carried out in both the operational and administrative areas of Eurojust. The proposed modifications do not have any budgetary effect. Modification of the establishment plan of the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA): the transformation of the European monitoring Centre on Racism and Xenophobia (EUMC) into the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) brings along a wider mandate compared to the current structures of the EUMC. The new expert tasks will require the recruitment of more specialists at University level. Therefore the Agency proposes a better distribution of the posts between Administrators and Assistants, by upgrading of the Establishment Plan combined with a reduction of the total number of posts (from 50 to 46 posts). The proposed readjustment of the Establishment Plan will have no impact on the level of the budgetary appropriations. Modification of the establishment plan of the European Agency for the management of the operational cooperation at the external borders of the Member States of the European Union (FRONTEX): in the budget for 2007, the budgetary authority placed an additional amount of EUR 12.8 million in the reserve for Frontex. The additional amount (+60%) was given to the Agency to allow it to better fulfil its tasks. However, no corresponding change was made to the establishment plan. The conditions for releasing the reserve relate to the work programme and the staff policy. The release of the additional funds in the reserve is necessary for Frontex to fulfil its activities set out in the revised Work Programme 2007. It is also necessary to increase the establishment plan from 34 to 49. For these reasons, it is proposed to amend the 2007 establishment plan of Frontex. The proposed modifications to the establishment plan are budgetary neutral.

This Commission proposal aimed to: set the necessary budgetary structure and allocations to allow for the financing of the Executive Agency for Competitiveness and Innovation, the successor of the existing Intelligent Energy Executive Agency, including modification of its establishment plan (16 additional temporary posts); modify the budgetary structure and the establishment plan (the net impact of which is 3 additional temporary posts) of the Executive Agency for Education, Audiovisual and Culture following the extension of its mandate; modify the establishment plan (the net impact of which is 3 additional temporary posts) of Eurojust following the expansion of its tasks and functions; modify the establishment plan (upgradings combined with deletion of 4 temporary posts) of the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights, the successor of the European Monitoring Centre on Racism and Xenophobia; modify the establishment plan (15 additional temporary posts) of the European Agency for the Management of the Operational Cooperation at the External Borders of the Members States of the European Union (Frontex) following the revision of its Work Programme 2007. The proposed changes in the budgetary structure, adjustments of allocations and modifications of the establishment plans do not have any net budgetary impact. At the close of its examination, the Budget Committee agreed, by a qualified majority, to suggest that the Permanent Representatives Committee advise the Council to: establish Draft Amending Budget No. 4 to the general budget for 2007 on the basis of the Commission's PDAB No. 3/2007 (regarding this numbering, PDAB No. 3/2007 becomes DAB No. 4/2007 for procedural reasons); instruct the Presidency to prepare the budgetary documents to be sent to the European Parliament.
