EXPLANATORY STATEMENT

On 17 January 2004, the appointment of the European Data-protection Supervisor and his deputy came into force. On 9 March 2004, the Parliament adopted the Amending budget No 2/2004 for the inclusion of this new institution in the 2004 budget with an amount of EUR 1 272 000 million and 15 posts. The appropriations were considered sufficient for the EDPS to start its operations by ensuring the gradual introduction of the activities and taking into account the time needed for recruiting staff. The office of the European Data-protection Supervisor is located in the EP premises in Brussels.

The draft amending budget 9/2004 is designed to modify the appropriations of the EDPS by topping-up the amount granted in the amending budget 2/2004 earlier this year. The commitments are proposed to be increased by EUR 670 279, mainly for the remuneration of Members and staff, as well as office installations, information technology and telecommunications. The revenue is increased by EUR 172 443. The total budget of the EDPS after the amending budget would be of EUR 1 942 279. The proposal also includes the conversion of three permanent posts (1 A*11, 1 A*10 and 1 B*6) into temporary ones, but the EDPS has later requested to keep the posts permanent to enable recruitment during the year 2004.
