Question for written answer E-007852-16
to the Commission
Rule 130
Fernando Ruas (PPE)

 Subject:  Structural Reform Support Service (SRSS)
 Answer in writing 

The relevant page on the Commission’s website states that:

‘To help EU Member States address the implementation challenge, the European Commission set up the Structural Reform Support Service in July 2015.

The Service coordinates and provides tailor-made technical support to EU Member States, in cooperation with the relevant Commission services. The objective of providing such support to Member States is to help build more effective institutions, stronger governance frameworks and efficient public administrations. This would, in turn, underpin the institutional and administrative capacity that is needed to design and implement policies to support job creation and sustainable growth. […] Since its establishment the Structural Reform Support Service has been providing technical support to an increasing number of Member States […]. Member States have identified and approached the SRSS with reform priorities and work is continuing throughout 2016 and into the future in order to support these Member States with their reform efforts.’

Although the regulation covering the service has not been approved, it is apparently now up and running; I would therefore like to ask the Commission:

What forms of support have actually been provided to Member States in order to achieve the stated aims?
