Discharge for 2014 budget – European Commission and executive agencies

25-04-2016

On 28 April 2016, the European Parliament (EP) will decide whether to grant discharge for the 2014 financial year to the different institutions and bodies of the European Union (EU). The debate will open with the report covering the European Commission (plus six executive agencies) which manages the biggest share of the EU general budget. Separate discharge is granted to the Commission concerning the management of the European Development Funds (EDFs), because this fund is not part of the general budget of the EU but based on intergovernmental agreement. The Committee on Budgetary Control (CONT) recommends to plenary to grant the Commission and all six executive agencies discharge for 2014, and also to grant discharge in respect of the implementation of the operations of the 8th, 9th, 10th and 11th EDFs in that year.
