    Description

    In its communication COM(2013)519 of 10/07/2013 on the programming of human and financial resources for decentralised agencies 2014-2020, the Commission foresaw for the ERA 2020 budget an EU contribution of 26,75 Mio€ with 148 TA and 36 CA.  This Decision provides a forecast of the expenditure and revenue for 2020. There is, however, not yet enough information in order to estimate the volume and complexity of the projects for vehicle authorisation, safety certification, which will arise in 2019-2020.  The Agency will be able to provide more accurate estimates for 2020 and amend the SPD draft accordingly before its adoption by the Management Board in November, based on the progress of work in the second half of 2019.

    This Decision was adopted in meeting 48 on 24 January 2019.
