Commission's proposal: Draft Amending Budget 1/2022, COM(2022) 81 – 28 January 2022
The MFF Regulation for the years 2021-2027 was adopted in December 2020. The legislative framework for the funds under shared management for the period 2021-2027, and in particular the Common Provisions Regulation, was adopted in mid-2021. This meant that the legal framework for the programming exercise of the funds under shared management was in place at a late stage.
Article 7 of the MFF Regulation provides for a specific adjustment of the MFF ceilings, to be carried out by the Commission at the beginning of 2022, allowing for the transfers of 2021 allocation of commitment appropriations for the identified funds under shared management either not used or carried over, in the case of the adoption after 1 January 2021 of new rules or programmes under shared management. The nine funds concerned, the list of which is set out in Article 7(1) of the MFF Regulation, are the European Regional Development Fund, the European Social Fund Plus, the Cohesion Fund, the Just Transition Fund, the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development, the European Maritime, Fisheries and Aquaculture Fund, the Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund, the Internal Security Fund and the Instrument for Financial Support for Border Management and Visa Policy.
The results of the adjustments of the MFF ceilings of Headings 2a, 3, 4 and 5 to be made by the Commission in accordance with Article 7 of the MFF Regulation are included in a specific Communication.
Draft Amending Budget (DAB) No 1 for the year 2022 reflects the specific impact of this transfer on 2022 commitment appropriations for the various funds under shared management under Headings 2a, 3, 4 and 5. The remaining transferred amounts will be reflected in the respective Draft Budgets of 2023, 2024 and 2025.
Overall, the net impact of this DAB on expenditure in the 2022 budget amounts to an increase of EUR 12 247,1 million in commitment appropriations. No additional payment appropriations are requested.
