Rome, 5 – 9 May 2003
European Commission for the Control of
Budget for 2004-2005
1. The proposed budgets for 2004 – 2005 are attached hereto. Both budgets are an estimate as they have not been submitted to the General Session of the Commission. The 2004 budget has, however, been discussed and supported by the Sixty-eighth Session of the Executive Committee held in Vilnius, Lithuania in November 2002. Both budgets will be submitted for approval to the Thirty-fifth General Session of the EUFMD scheduled to be held in Rome in April 2003.
2. The Commission also disposes of an emergency Trust Fund (TF 909700 MTF/INT/004/MUL) which is used only when an FMD emergency situation arises and when funds cannot be drawn from TF904200 and TF911100. Considering the sporadic, often devastating, epidemic and largely unpredictable nature of recent FMD outbreaks in Europe we cannot predict the spending from this Trust Fund but it has been considered important by our Commission to retain such a reserve.
3. The Organization through its Regular Programme (RP) contributes in kind to the activities of the Commission by providing premises for the Secretariat, fax and telephone facilities and as and when required the services of responsible officials with regard to financial matters. The estimate for the RP input to the activities of the Commission is US$55,000 for the period under review.
