Amending Budget No 2 to the 2015 EU budget

21-04-2015

Draft amending budget No 2 to the general budget 2015 accompanies the revision of the Multiannual Financial Framework for the years 2014-2020 (MFF) under Article 19 of Council Regulation No 1311/2013 (the MFF Regulation). The Parliament voted to consent to this revision on 15 April. As a consequence of the late agreement on the 2014-2020 Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF), the various legal acts setting out the provisions for implementing the funds were adopted much later than planned, resulting in a delay in programming. The revision of the MFF and the adoption of Draft Amending Budget No 2 are necessary steps to fully implement the programmes under shared management, for which the 2014 allocation has not been used. All 28 Member States are concerned.
