The Schedule

On Tuesday (6 November), Vítor Caldeira, the president of the European Court of Auditors, presented the ECA's annual report on the EU's spending in 2011 to members of the European Parliament's budgetary-control committee. The presentation launched an annual procedure known as ‘discharge', by which the Parliament approves the spending of EU institutions year by year.  

On 26 November, members of the parliamentary committee will begin hearings with individual European commissioners, starting with Máire Geoghegan-Quinn, the commissioner for research, innovation and science, and wrapping up on 22 January with Algirdas Šemeta, the commissioner for taxation and customs union, audit and anti-fraud, and with Catherine Day, the secretary-general of the European Commission.


This will be followed by two days of hearings with the heads of other EU institutions and agencies. In mid-February, the committee will discuss the draft reports on the distinct agencies and institutions, followed by their adoption in committee in mid-March and in plenary in May.
