E-000325/2019(ASW)
Answer given by Mr Oettinger on behalf of the European Commission
Question reference: E-000325/2019

The reste à liquider (RAL) is the sum of outstanding commitments, commitments agreed to but that have not yet translated into payments. The RAL is inherent to the functioning of the EU budget, which is based on multiannual programmes with a time lag between commitments and payments.

The Commission issues various reports on the RAL but the RAL by Member State is reported with relation to the implementation of the European Structural and Investment Funds (71% of the overall RAL at the end of 2017).

That information can be consulted in the ‘Analysis of the budgetary implementation of the European Structural and Investment Funds’ — produced annually — the latest edition for the year 2017(1) is available on the Europa website(2).

(1)The 2018 report will be available online in May 2019.
