A Resolution of the European Parliament, containing the comments which form part of the decision granting discharge to the Commission in respect of the implementation of the general budget of the European Communities for the financial year 1989, notes that in the energy and research sectors the volume of outstanding commitments, especially in the energy sector, continued to rise and asks that a procedure be introduced to review all projects dormant for more than one year. The Commission is asked to improve programme planning to take account of legislative procedures and to avoid unnecessary delays in tendering procedures. It is also called on to use provisions of the Interinstitutional Agreement to allow RTD expenditure to reach the levels permitted by the Financial Perspective. Further comment concerns the Joint Research Centre (management, performance, costs, the JRC Management Efficiency Unit, support for DGs, marketing and public relations activities) and the Joint European Torus (JET) project.
