Annual "discharge" procedure

European Institute of Innovation and Technology and ITER project fail 2013 discharge test


The European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) and four EU/private new-technology partnerships must do more to show that their EU funds for 2013 were well spent before the European Parliament approves their accounts, said Budgetary Control Committee MEPs on Monday.

The European Institute of Innovation and Technology (Budapest, Hungary) failed the first round of the “discharge” test because MEPs were not satisfied with its verification of payments before and after it contracted projects. MEPs also questioned the EITs use of by-invitation-only public procurement procedures.

The EIT has until September to convince legislators that it has improved its management of EU resources.

Four out of seven projects set up as EU partnerships with private companies (known as “joint undertakings”) failed to convince budgetary control MEPs that they had managed EU funds appropriately. The committee recommends that Parliament as whole should postpone granting them a discharge.

The Stockholm-based ARTEMIS project (now renamed Electronic Components and Systems for European Leadership. - ECSEL), the London-based Innovative Medicines Initiative (IMI) and the Brussels-based nanoelectronics project ENIAC (European Nanoelectronics Initiative Advisory Council) were all criticised for insufficient checks on money transfers. The Barcelona-based ITER (International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor) project was criticised for delayed disbursements and growing budget costs.

For the fifth consecutive year, the Budgetary Control Committee recommended (this time, unanimously) that Parliament as a whole should postpone granting a discharge to the Council of Ministers and the European Council (heads of state or government) due to their failure to cooperate with Parliament by supplying the figures it needs.

The Budgetary Control Committee voted Monday on the management of EU funds at 32 EU agencies, 7 joint undertakings and 8 institutions. The votes continue on Tuesday 24 March with the European Commission and the European Parliament. The Budgetary Control Committee’s recommendations will be put to a vote by Parliament as a whole between 28 and 30 April. Parliament will take its final decision on the postponed discharges in October.
