Press Release: New EU Budget – increased flexibility welcomed but greater emphasis on value added still needed

The European Commission’s proposed EU Budget for the period from 2021 to 2027 still needs a greater emphasis on value added, according to a new Briefing Paper from the European Court of Auditors. The auditors welcome the increased flexibility of the Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF) to deal with unforeseen events. However, they warn that changes in priorities among spending areas are not clearly explained in the proposal or supported by the published results of the Commission’s assessment of EU spending programmes’ value added.
