2014 budget context
2014 Budget Context

In accordance with usual budget practice, the MASP 2012-2014 has been translated into an Annual Work Programme wherefrom a draft activity based budget has been derived.

In the context of financial austerity, growth was limited to the extent possible through finding efficiency gains.

However, Eurojust is a judicial cooperation agency with a mandate that is clearly demand driven which requires the commensurate resources.


Agency status
Agency Status

  • Budget Circular received from the Commission in December unilaterally reclassifying Eurojust from “agency with new tasks” to “agency at cruising speed”

  • It is our view that this reclassification is premature; Eurojust remains an agency with new tasks:

    • Implementation of the Eurojust Council Decision of 2008 is ongoing

    • New tasks deriving form the new Regulations under Articles 85 and 86 TFEU

    • JITs funding as EU grant financing ceases

    • New Premises for Eurojust

    • The impact of the results of the 6th round of mutual evaluation

  • The draft budget 2014 is presented against this background.

Eurojust’s New Premises

  • Total estimated 2014 appropriation €1,107,200

    • €457,200 represents part of New Premises Project budget (€18.4 million) for costs foreseen in 2014

    • Agreed project proposal

      shows the development of

      project costs in the coming

      years

    • In addition Eurojust as the stakeholder in the Project requires professional/legal advice at this critical phase. €650,000 for 2014 is requested in this respect.
