EXPLANATORY STATEMENT

Decision-making process for the implementation of the programmes

The decisions taken by the European Parliament and the Council to adopt the multiannual programmes in the field of culture, education, youth and active citizenship contain provisions concerning the procedures under the 'comitology' decision and a number of measures necessary for implementing the programmes.

These procedures are set out in Council Decision No 1999/468/ΕC laying down the procedures for the exercise of implementing powers conferred on the Commission, as amended by Council Decision No 2006/512/ΕC.

The basic instruments of the multiannual programmes provide for the division of selection decisions between the management and the advisory procedures and clearly define the number and type of selection decisions to be subject to the management procedure. All other measures, including the selection decisions, are subject to the advisory procedure.

The Commission's proposal

The Commission considers that making selection decisions subject to the advisory procedure entails extending the periods of time required to adopt them and has an impact on their effectiveness.

The Commission also notes the nature of the programmes' actions which concern a relatively large number of beneficiaries whose activities are significantly dependent on Community support, while the relevant amounts are limited.

The Commission proposes eliminating the advisory procedure for selection decisions in order to simplify decision-making procedures in the interests of potential beneficiaries of the grants.

The Commission also notes that, in order to reduce the time required for consultation on selection decisions which are subject to the advisory procedure, the programme committee makes more use of the written procedure and has five days in which to deliver an opinion on the selection decisions submitted to it.

Remarks

Your rapporteur believes that there can be no questioning the value of comitology, which gives the European Parliament the right of scrutiny, and the right to information, allowing it to monitor the implementation of legislative instruments adopted under the codecision procedure and also to contest any measures envisaged by the Commission which it thinks would exceed the implementing powers provided for in the basic instrument.

Your rapporteur would stress that the Committee on Culture and Education has repeatedly advocated a swift, effective and transparent procedure which will, nevertheless, safeguard the right of scrutiny and information in regard to decision-making.

In order to carry out the selection procedures quickly and effectively in the interests of beneficiaries and to ensure the best way of fulfilling the objectives of the programmes, without reducing the transparency of the decision-making procedure, the advisory procedure could be replaced provided that the Commission informs the European Parliament and the Member States without delay of the selection decisions which will be taken without being submitted to the programme committee.

It is also considered that the Commission should inform the programme committee and the European Parliament without delay on all the selection procedure, the applications for funding which it has examined, the assessment of those applications, and that it should also provide a full list of the projects selected for funding and those rejected.

Given that this is a new procedure, it is essential that the co-legislators, the Council and the European Parliament, are able to assess the results of the new measures within a reasonable period of time after the entry into force of the new instrument. It is, therefore, considered that the Commission should be required to report thereon to Parliament and the Council.

Agreement of the Council and European Parliament on the completion of the codecision procedure

Your rapporteur welcomes the constructive and open-minded interinstitutional cooperation on the Commission's proposals, the fact that the programmes will be implemented transparently and effectively and that the legislator - the Council and Parliament - will be informed immediately and systematically.

The draft report reflects the outcome of deliberations with the Council and the Commission during the codecision procedure.
