    • PURPOSE: presentation by the Commission of the consolidated annual accounts of the European Union for the financial year 2015, as part of the 2015 discharge procedure.

      Analysis of the accounts of the European Global Navigation Satellite System Agency (GSA).

      CONTENT: the organisational governance of the EU consists of institutions, agencies and other EU bodies whose expenditure is included in the general budget of the Union.

      The EU's operational expenditure of these institutions takes different forms, depending on how the money is paid out and managed.

      From 2014 onwards, the Commission classifies its expenditure as follows:

      • Direct management: the budget is implemented directly by the Commission services.
      • Indirect management: the Commission confers tasks of implementation of the budget to bodies of EU law or national law, such as the EU agencies.
      • Shared management: under this method of budget implementation tasks are delegated to Member States. About 80 % of the expenditure falls under this management mode covering such areas as agricultural spending and structural actions.

      This Commission document concerns the EU's consolidated accounts for the year 2015 and details how spending by the EU institutions and bodies was carried out. The consolidated annual accounts of the EU provide financial information on the activities of the institutions, agencies and other bodies of the EU from an accrual accounting and budgetary perspective.

      It is the responsibility of the Commission's Accounting Officer to prepare the EU's consolidated annual accounts and ensure that they present fairly, in all material aspects, the financial position, the result of the operations and the cash flows of the EU institutions and bodies, including the European Global Navigation Satellite System Agency (GSA), with a view to granting discharge.

      Discharge procedure: the final step of a budget lifecycle is the discharge of the budget for a given financial year. It represents the political aspect of the external control of budget implementation and is the decision by which the European Parliament, acting on a Council recommendation, "releases" the Commission (and other EU bodies) from its responsibility for management of a given budget by marking the end of that budget's existence. The European Parliament is the discharge authority within the EU.

      The discharge procedure may produce three outcomes: (i) the granting; (ii) postponement or; (iii) the refusal of the discharge.

      The final discharge report including specific recommendations to the Commission for action is adopted in plenary by the European Parliament and are subject to an annual follow up report in which the Commission outlines the concrete actions it has taken to implement the recommendations made.

      Each agency is subject to its own discharge procedure, including the European Global Navigation Satellite System Agency (GSA).

      GSA: the Supervisory Authority, whose headquarters are located in Prague (CZ) since 2012, was set up by Council Regulation (EC) No 1321/2004 and its main task is to manage the public interests relating to the European GNSS programmes and to act as the regulatory authority for the programme during the deployment and operational phases of the Galileo Programme. Regulation (EC) No 683/2008 of the European Parliament and the Council reduced the responsibilities of the Authority to the control of the security of Galileo systems and to the preparation of their commercialisation.

      As regards the Authority’s accounts, these are presented in detail in the document on the consolidated annual accounts of the European Union for 2015:

      Commitment appropriations:

      -          committed: EUR 1 582 million;

      -          paid: EUR 144 million;

      -          carried-over: EUR 1 438 million.

      Payment appropriations:

      -          committed: EUR 616 million;

      -          paid: EUR 211 million;

      -          carried-over: EUR 404 million.

      For further details on expenditure, please refer to the final accounts of the GSA.
