2. Notes that the Commission provided funds to the Joint Undertaking from the Seventh Framework Programme and the Horizon 2020, as well as from the Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T) under the Multiannual Financial Framework 2007-2013 and from the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) under the Multiannual Financial Framework 2014-2020;

3. Notes that, following a call for expressions of interest in 2015, 19 public and private entities from the aviation sector became members of the Joint Undertaking;

4. Notes that the Joint Undertaking launched two calls for proposals under Horizon 2020, resulting in 15 selected proposals and 13 projects launched for the Wave 2 call, and 29 selected proposals for the fourth Exploratory research call; notes that the completion of the SESAR 2020 Wave 1 in 2019 resulted in the delivery of 21 SESAR Solutions ready for industrialisation; notes that in 2019 the Joint Undertaking had 70 projects running under SESAR 2020, comprising 17 projects for exploratory research, 32 for industrial research and validation, and 21 for very large-scale demonstrations (of which seven were completed during the year); notes that the Joint Undertaking adopted the updated 2020 European ATM Master Plan, and provided support to the Commission on the technological aspects of the Single European Sky;

7. Points out that one of the main achievements of the Joint Undertaking is the free routing to reduce flight and fuel emissions; believes its successor, should further contribute to the sustainability of the aviation sector in line with the objectives of the Green Deal; believes moreover that that successor should contribute making the aviation market more flexible and resilient to traffic fluctuations, establishing the Single European Sky as the most efficient and environmentally friendly airspace in the world;

Budget and financial management

8. Notes that, in 2019, the total available budget, including re-entered unused appropriations of previous years, assigned revenues and reallocations to the next year, consisted of commitment appropriations amounting to EUR 161 041 597 (of which EUR 112 618 000 came from the Union budget) and payment appropriations amounting to EUR 183 279 715 (of which EUR 113 733 525 came from the Union budget);

9. Notes that SESAR 1, implemented under Seventh Framework Programme, was formally closed in 2016 and the last corrective payments and recoveries of over-payments to beneficiaries were completed in 2019: notes that following the closure of SESAR 1, the Joint Undertaking found excess financial contributions received from its Members amounting to EUR 30 767 098: notes in this regard that according to Article 13 of the constituent act, the Joint Undertaking's members can only expect the reimbursement of their respective excess contributions at the dissolution of the Joint Undertaking by 31 December 2024; notes from the Court’s report that, based on the Joint Undertaking’s accounting information, the Joint Undertaking needs to reimburse the respective members as follows: approximately, EUR 23 800 000 to the Commission, EUR 4 800 000 to Eurocontrol, and EUR 2 100 000 to industry members; notes, moreover, from the Court’s report that the Joint Undertaking informed the Commission of the situation in May 2018 and April 2019 and that in the absence of a pragmatic solution for an early reimbursement, these funds remain with the Joint Undertaking without being used for research projects, which is contrary to the principle of sound financial management; notes the Joint Undertaking’s reply to the effect that a draft decision was sent to the Administrative Board to provide the Joint Undertaking with the legal basis to proceed with the reimbursement, and that this decision is currently subject to a Written Procedure that is underway, and that as soon as the decision is taken, the Joint Undertaking will execute the reimbursements in line with the recommendations of Directorate-General for Budget, enabling a swift closure of the SESAR 1 accounts; calls on the Joint Undertaking to report to the discharge authority of any development in that regard;

13. Notes that there are different procedures across the Joint Undertakings receiving a financial contribution from the Joint Undertaking's private members. Calls for the harmonisation of the in-kind contribution calculation across the Joint Undertakings, resulting in a common procedure. That common procedure should provide for transparent and effective methods of evaluation having as result the real value for the contribution. Calls on the Court to enable the scrutiny of the audits performed by the independent external auditors. Calls also for an appropriate legal framework to ensure that the required financial contribution amount is achieved by the end of the programme. The legal framework could include requirements for the private contribution to be paid latest to coincide with the corresponding Union contribution;

15. Notes that in 2019 the Joint Undertaking published its new Financial Rules, following the publication by the Commission of the new Framework Financial Regulation[15];

Performance

16. Notes the Joint Undertaking’s key performance indicators in 2019, in particular, the common Horizon 2020 key performance indicators for monitoring performance and cross-cutting issues, the specific Joint Undertaking’s key performance indicators and those related to the performance ambitions of the Single European Sky as defined in the European ATM Master Plan;

17. Notes that the Joint Undertaking achieved all its objectives as outlined in the Single Programming Document 2019–2021, which in 2019 was structured around six areas of operations; notes that in March 2019 the Joint Undertaking published the Airspace Architecture Study which was followed in September by the Transition Plan, setting out three key operational and technical measures that need to be put in place in the short term (2020 to 2025) for setting in motion the changes outlined in the Study; notes furthermore that the Joint Undertaking is on track to meet the research and innovation objectives and timeline as outlined in the 2015 European ATM Master Plan;

18. Notes the reported leverage effect of 0,79 in 2019, and the forecasted leverage effect at the end of the programme of 1,40, measured following the Commission’s method used in the interim evaluation, and that the actual leverage effect of the Joint Undertaking is regularly progressing towards the targets;

19. Notes that in the Joint Undertaking's 2019 annual activity report, the key performance indicators on gender balance increased in comparison to previous years but nevertheless remained low, with only 19 % of women participants in Horizon 2020 projects and 20 % of women project coordinators; regrets that the figure for percentage of women in Commission’s advisory and expert groups, evaluation panels and other bodies is not available for 2019;

20. Welcomes the Court’s Special report on SESAR activity and calls for regular special reports. Calls on Commission and the Court for a in-depth performance tracking method in view of evaluating the added value of the Joint Undertaking and including the social, employment impact as well as impact on the market. The results of the evaluation should be used for future or redistribution of Union financing;

21. The issue of Intellectual Property Rights needs to be addressed in all contracts which may produce an intended outcome or result of the performance. It aims to safeguard the rights of individual creators but also to provide details of how the right will be used in the future. Since the activity is financed inter alia with public money, the results should be transparent, accessible to the public and subject to special requirements, as for example interoperability if necessary; calls on the Commission for the development of a legal framework in respect of the intellectual property rights and their implementation on the market, that covers, inter alia, special requirements and profit distribution;

Procurement and recruitment procedures

22. Notes that at 31 December 2019, the Joint Undertaking employed 40 staff (38 temporary agents (TAs) and two seconded national experts (SNEs)), compared to 42 in the establishment plan (comprising 39 TAs and 3 SNEs positions); notes that in 2019 the Joint Undertaking implemented the Human Resources information system ‘Sysper for Agencies’, developed by the Commission; notes, furthermore, that the Joint Undertaking appointed a Chief Financial Officer (recruited externally) in the new organisation chart, strengthening its finance function; applauds that 54 % of staff employed are women, however regrets the lack of data on gender parity per type of contract and seniority of staff;

23. Notes the results of the 2019 Human Resources benchmarking exercise: 59.29 % operational posts, 30 % administrative and 10.71 % of finances and control posts;

24. Notes that in 2019, the Joint Undertaking signed 30 procurement contracts including 24 specific contracts implementing the Joint Undertaking’s framework contracts and inter-institutional agreements, and that it carried out eight procurement procedures;

Internal Control

25. Notes from the Court’s report that the Joint Undertaking has set up reliable ex-ante control procedures based on financial and operational desk reviews and that it is obliged to implement the Commission’s new internal control framework, based on 17 internal control principles, and furthermore that at the end of 2019, the Joint Undertaking had already completed a gap analysis based on the existing internal control system and defined indicators (i.e. “means”) for the majority of the new internal control principles and related characteristics; moreover, notes from the Court’s report that most of these indicators related to the existence of a control activity rather than to its effectiveness and that the Joint Undertaking still needs to develop further relevant key control indicators to assess the effectiveness of its control activities and to detect control weaknesses; notes the Joint Undertaking reply that it started an internal project to develop further relevant key control indicators to assess the effectiveness of its control activities and detect control weaknesses, that these actions would build on the work already done since 2017, and that it intended to implement them by the end of 2020;

26. Notes from the Court’s report that for Horizon 2020 payments, the Commission’s Common Audit Service is responsible for the ex-post audits and that based on the ex-post audit results available at the end of 2019, the Joint Undertaking reported a representative error rate of 2,61 % and a residual error rate of 1,61 % for Horizon 2020 projects (clearings and final payments); notes from the Commission proposal for a Horizon 2020 regulation that a risk of error, on an annual basis, within a range between 2 to 5 % is a realistic objective, taking into account the costs of controls, the simplification measures proposed to reduce the complexity of rules and the related inherent risk associated to the reimbursement of costs of the research project, and that the ultimate aim for the residual level of error at the closure of the programmes after the financial impact of all audits, correction and recovery measures will have been taken into account, is to achieve a level as close as possible to 2 %;

27. Notes from the Court’s report that as part of the operational payment controls, it audited randomly sampled Horizon 2020 payments made in 2019 at the level of the final beneficiaries to corroborate the ex-post audit error rates and that these detailed audits showed no significant errors or control weaknesses at the sampled Joint Undertaking beneficiaries;

28. Notes that the Joint Undertaking held only one risk management workshop in October 2019, rather than the usual two foreseen by its Risk Management policy; calls on the Joint Undertaking to perform risk management workshops as in the policy;

29. Notes that the CVs and declarations of interest of the administrative board are not published; calls on the Joint Undertaking to publish the CVs and the declaration of interest of the administrative board in the light of the transparency framework and to guarantee user-friendly access to them;

Internal audits

30. Notes that the Joint Undertaking published its Strategic Internal Audit Plan 2019-2021 in May 2019 and that following that the Internal Audit Service intends to perform audit engagements on grant implementation and programme management, on in-kind contribution validation process, and on Human Resource management, and possibly for two additional areas of risk; notes that in 2019 the Internal Audit Capability conducted a fraud risk assessment, updated the Joint Undertaking anti-fraud strategy, carried out a consulting engagement on risks and controls, and monitored the implementation of several action plans related to past audits and followed-up; notes that in 2019 the Joint Undertaking had no new or open recommendations, and in particular, notes that the Joint Undertaking implemented the three previous open recommendations to the audit on Coordination with the Common Implementation Centre (CIC) and implementation of CIC tools and services.

SUGGESTIONS

The Committee on Transport and Tourism calls on the Committee on Budgetary Control, as the committee responsible, to incorporate the following suggestions into its motion for a resolution:

1. Welcomes the finding of the Court of Auditors that the accounts of the Single European Sky Air Traffic Management Research (SESAR) Joint Undertaking ('the Undertaking') for the 2019 financial year are legal and regular in all material respects;

2. Notes the Undertaking’s important role as the technological pillar of Europe Single European Sky (SES); notes the increasing importance of the Undertaking’s work in light of emerging technologies enabling autonomous and unmanned aircrafts;

3. Notes that the Undertaking’s final 2019 budget was EUR 119.57 million in commitment appropriations and EUR 125.69 million in payment appropriations and that the implementation rates were 91.69 % and 82.66 % respectively (for SESAR 1: 2.70 % and 50.57 % and for SESAR 2020: 92.36 % and 82.97 %); notes that the low overall payment implementation rate for SESAR 1, reflects the financial closure of its projects and winding up of the programme;

4. Reiterates that the Undertaking running its operations in full accordance with four different legal frameworks (Horizon 2020, CEF, U-space, AGS) results in a high degree of operational complexity;

5. Welcomes that the Undertaking complemented the 28 projects closed in 2018 in the Exploratory Research 1 programme by a total of 17 projects in the fields of fundamental and applied research in 2019; further welcomes the progress and near-completion of the Wave 1 Industrial Research projects and the signature of all Wave 2 projects’ grants by 31 December 2019;

6. Notes that the Undertaking finalised the process of financial and administrative closure of SESAR 1 (operational closure end 2016); notes that the actual overall programme execution rate is 90 %; points out that members’ cash contributions to SESAR at the end of 2019 generated a surplus of EUR 30.7 million; acknowledges that according to the Undertaking's amended founding regulation, reimbursement of excess cash contributions can only be made at the formal closure of the Undertaking in 2024, unless the Undertaking's administrative board proposes to the Commission beforehand to dissolve the Undertaking; calls on the Commission to find a solution that would permit earlier reimbursement, thereby ensuring respect for the principle of sound financial management;

7. Notes that out of EUR 124.8 million in implemented revenue received by SESAR 2020 in 2019, the contribution from the Union was EUR 114.1 million and from Eurocontrol EUR 1.8 million;

8. Notes that the budget result in 2019 amounted to a deficit of EUR 26.72 million (of which a surplus EUR 0.03 million for SESAR 1 and deficit of EUR 26.75 million for the SESAR 2020) and that the cumulative surplus amounts to EUR 50.24 million (of which EUR 30.69 million for SESAR 1 and EUR 19.55 million for SESAR 2020);

9. Recommends that the Undertaking pay special attention to the most significant risks identified by the Internal Audit Service (in its Strategic Risk Assessment of the Undertaking): grant implementation and programme management; the in-kind contribution validation process; Human resources;

10. Notes the results of the 2019 Human Resources benchmarking exercise: 59.29 % operational posts, 30 % administrative and 10.71 % of finances and control posts;

11. Points out that one of the main achievements of the Undertaking includes the free routing to reduce flight and fuel emissions; believes its successor, should further contribute to the sustainability of the aviation sector in line with the objectives of the Green Deal; believes moreover that the successor should contribute making the aviation market more flexible and resilient to traffic fluctuations, establishing the Single European Sky as the most efficient and environmentally friendly airspace in the world;

12. Notes that according to the Undertaking’s Annual Activity Report for the year 2019, the Undertaking met all its key policy and operational objectives;

13.  Proposes that Parliament grants the Executive Director of the Undertaking discharge in respect of the implementation of its budget for the financial year 2019.
