The President can also delegate duties to them.
They are responsible, under the Bureau’s instructions, for administrative and financial matters of direct concern to Members.
 Pursuant to Rule 24 of Parliament’s Rules of Procedure, quaestors are members of the Bureau in an advisory capacity
Together with the Parliament president, vice-presidents and quaestors make up the Bureau, which takes decisions on matters of internal organisation for the institution. While the president oversees all of Parliament’s work and represents it in all legal matters and external relations, it is possible to delegate some duties to vice-presidents. They can also replace the president when chairing plenary sessions. Quaestors deal with financial and administrative matters that concern MEPs.
