Chapter IV – Establishment and structure of ENISA’s budget (Art. 29-33)
Art. 29 CSA - Establishment of ENISA’s budget
Art. 30 CSA - Structure of ENISA’s budget
- Without prejudice to other resources, ENISA’s revenue shall be composed of:
- a contribution from the general budget of the Union;
- revenue assigned to specific items of expenditure in accordance with its financial rules referred to in Article 32;
- Union funding in the form of delegation agreements or ad hoc grants in accordance with its financial rules referred to in Article 32 and with the provisions of the relevant instruments supporting the policies of the Union;
- contributions from third countries participating in the work of ENISA as referred to in Article 42;
- any voluntary contributions from Member States in money or in kind.
Member States that provide voluntary contributions under point (e) of the first subparagraph shall not claim any specific right or service as a result thereof.
- The expenditure of ENISA shall include staff, administrative and technical support, infrastructure and operational expenses, and expenses resulting from contracts with third parties.
In order to guarantee the full autonomy and independence of ENISA and to enable it to perform additional tasks, including unforeseen emergency tasks, ENISA should be granted a sufficient and autonomous budget whose revenue should primarily come from a contribution from the Union and contributions from third countries participating in ENISA’s work. An appropriate budget is paramount for ensuring that ENISA has sufficient capacity to perform all of its growing tasks and to achieve its objectives. The majority of ENISA’s staff should be directly engaged in the operational implementation of ENISA’s mandate. The host Member State, and any other Member State, should be allowed to make voluntary contributions to ENISA’s budget. The Union’s budgetary procedure should remain applicable as far as any subsidies chargeable to the general budget of the Union are concerned. Moreover, the Court of Auditors should audit ENISA’s accounts to ensure transparency and accountability.
