Are preferential trade arrangements appropriately managed? : (pursuant to Article 287(4), second subparagraph, TFEU) by European Court of Auditors( Book )

5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Preferential trade arrangements (PTAs) are an essential instrument of EU trade policy. Trade brings economic benefits to both the EU and its partner countries and promotes sustainable development and poverty eradication in developing countries. This report evaluates whether PTAs are appropriately managed by both the Commission and Member States. It found that the Commission has not appropriately assessed all the economic effects of PTAs and that the completeness of revenue collection is not ensured because customs controls applied by Member States are weak and there are also deficiencies in the Commission's supervision."--Page 4 of cover

The EU priority of promoting a knowledge-based rural economy has been affected by poor management of knowledge-transfer and advisory measures( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Court examined whether the high priority of lifelong learning and knowledge transfer within the EU's rural-development policy was matched by the Commission's and Member States' efforts to deliver high-quality knowledge-transfer and advisory activities. The audit found that this was not the case. Too often Member States relied on the proposals coming from the training providers and any type of training was seen as 'good' and eligible to receive public support. Only infrequently was there proper analysis made of whether such activities could make a real impact. Member States did not always ensure fair and transparent competition when selecting the training activities and paid too much for certain services. In terms of follow-up, the audit found a lack of detailed evaluation of what was actually achieved with the public funds. In its recommendations, the Court particularly encourages the Member States to adapt the knowledge-transfer and advisory activities they choose to the evolving needs of the rural operators through recurrent procedures of analysis and evaluation.--
Lessons from the European Commission's development of the second generation Schengen Information System (SIS II) : (pursuant to Article 287(4), second subparagraph, TFEU)( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 93 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Schengen Information System contains information on people and property which is used by border guards and police throughout the Schengen Area. In this report the Court of Auditors examines the Commission's management of the project to develop a new, second generation Schengen Information System (SIS II). It explains why the system was delivered 6 years later than planned and at 8 times the initial budget estimate."--Page 4 of cover
Are the fisheries partnership agreements well managed by the Commission? : (pursuant to article 287(4), second subparagraph, TFEU)( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The European Union (EU) negotiates agreements with coastal countries to obtain fishing rights for EU vessels and to support the governance and sustainable development of the local fishing sector. The Court found that these agreements were generally well managed by the European Commission, but that some improvements were needed. The quantities of fish negotiated with the coastal countries regularly exceeded the actual use made by the EU fleet, making the agreements relatively more costly than expected for the EU. The monitoring of catch data and the licencing process was not sufficiently robust, and the support provided for the sustainable development of the local fisheries sectors needed clearer eligibility conditions, and better coordination and consistency with other EU development support.--
EU-funding of urban waste water treatment plants in the Danube River Basin : further efforts needed in helping member states to achieve EU waste water policy objectives : (pursuant to Article 287(4), second subparagraph, TFEU)( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Waste water and sewage sludge can affect the quality of waters and soils. In response to this, the EU has adopted directives and co-financed the building of collecting systems and waste water treatment plants.The Court checked the implementation of the urban waste water treatment directive in four Member States of the Danube river basin. It also examined a sample of 28 treatment plants, to see how they treated waste water, handled sewage sludge and assured financial sustainability.The Court makes recommendations on reporting, on ways to improve effectiveness, efficiency and the sustainability of treatment plants, on the relevance of concentration limits, on the use of sewage sludge and on monitoring pollutants in sludge." -- Back cover
The EU police mission in Afghanistan : mixed results : (pursuant to Article 287(4), second subparagraph, TFEU)( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Court's assessment of EUPOL Afghanistan, a civilian Common Security and Defence Policy (CSDP) mission, found that it had been partly effective in delivering its mandate. While external factors may provide some explanation for this, other shortcomings can be attributed to EUPOL itself. The Court makes a number of recommendations, applicable not only to EUPOL Afghanistan, but also to other CSDP missions aiming to improve their effectiveness and the sustainability of the outcomes achieved." -- Back cover
More attention to results needed to improve the delivery of technical assistance to Greece : (pursuant to Article 287(4), second subparagraph, TFEU)( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Task Force for Greece was established in 2011 by the European Commission to support implementation of the Economic adjustment programme with a broad range of technical assistance. This report examines whether the task force fulfilled its mandate and whether the assistance provided for Greece made an effective contribution to the reform process. We found that overall the task force proved itself as a functioning mechanism for delivering and co-ordinating complex technical assistance activities. However, there were weaknesses in the design of some projects and only mixed results in terms of influence on the progress of reform."--Back cover
Gaps, overlaps and challenges : a landscape review of EU accountability and public audit arrangements( )

5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Accountability and audit arrangements for European Union (EU) policies, instruments, entities and related public financial resources and related challenges are considered in this review. For this purpose, accountability refers mainly to democratic (especially parliamentary) oversight of policies and activities of public bodies, whereas public audit refers to the financial and performance audits of policies and related public funds and their link to the accountability process."--Page 1
EU support for the fight against torture and the abolition of the death penalty : (pursuant to Article 287(4), second subparagraph, TFEU)( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The EU is strongly committed to preventing and eradicating all forms of torture and other ill-treatment as well as to abolishing the death penalty throughout the world. The Court assessed the effectiveness of the European Instrument for Democracy and Human Rights, which provides grants to civil society organisations for implementing projects that pursue these objectives. The Court concludes that the support provided was only partially effective. Although the Commission made appropriate needs assessments, it did not optimally target the funding. Because of this and also due to unfavourable political contexts, the overall impact of the projects funded was not optimal. The Court makes a number of recommendations for the Commission that concern the selection of project proposals, the coordination with other EU efforts, the performance measurement framework and the sustainability of beneficiary organization." -- Page 4 of cover
ACP-EU Energy Facility support for renewable energy in East Africa : (pursuant to Article 287(4), second subparagraph, TFEU)( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"​​In 2004, nearly two billion people did not have access to adequate, affordable and sustainable energy services, which are key in order to make firm progress towards development objectives. Created in June 2005, the ACP--EU Energy Facility aims to promote access to modern energy services for the poor in rural and peri-urban areas, with a strong focus on sub-Saharan Africa and renewable energy. In this report, we conclude that the Commission was mostly successful but could have done better in using the ACP--EU Energy Facility to increase access to renewable energy for the poor in East Africa. We make a number of recommendations for selecting projects more rigorously, strengthening their monitoring and increasing their sustainability prospects." -- Back cover

6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this report, the European Court of Auditors analyzes the European Union's public health program (PHP) for 2003-07.

The report details conclusions and recommendations in program design, implementation and management. in view of its findings, the Court calls into question the utility of certain components of European public health programs such as the PHP. The Commission and the member states are invited to reconsider the EU's funding approach in the field of public health.--Publisher's description

7 editions published in 2009 in English and Multiple languages and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The cost-effectiveness of EU rural development support for non-productive investments in agriculture : (pursuant to Article 287(4), second subparagraph, TFEU)( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Non-productive investments (NPIs) are investments which do not generate significant return, income, or revenue, or increase significantly the value of the beneficiary's holding, but have a positive environmental impact. Public support for NPIs is provided by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development and national co-financing. This public support often reaches 100% of the total investment costs. The Court concludes that NPI support has contributed to the achievement of objectives linked to the sustainable use of agricultural land, but in a way that was not cost effective. This was because the costs of 75% of the visited projects were unreasonably high. Furthermore, even though many of these projects had obvious remunerative characteristics, they were fully funded with public money. The Court makes five recommendations aimed at improving the cost-effectiveness of NPIs that will be funded during the 2014-2020 programming period"--Back cover
