Proposal for amending the financial reference amount - within the meaning of the interinstitutional agreement of 6 May 1999, Article 34(3) - of the sixth framework programme of [...] COM(2003) 778

Funded under: FP6

Abstract

When adapting the financial perspectives for the period 2000-2006 in order to take account of enlargement (the accession of 10 new Member States in May 2004), the European Parliament and the Council agreed the following statement:
[The European Parliament and the Council] "agree to revise (by the end of the budgetary procedure for 2004) in accordance with the co-decision procedure, the reference amounts of the co-decided programmes within the limits of the ceiling resulting from the abovementioned adjustment and revision of the financial perspective".
For all the co-decided programmes financed under heading 3 of the financial perspective (Internal Policies), it is therefore necessary to adapt the financial reference amounts included in each of the legislative acts concerned. The Commission, in the general introduction (volume 0) to the Preliminary Draft Budget, proposed new amounts for the reference amounts concerned, seeking a political agreement of the budgetary authority before submitting the corresponding legislative proposal(s).
