Hundred and tenth Session
Rome, 19 – 23 September 2005
European Commission for the Control of Foot-and-Mouth Disease (EUFMD)
Budget for 2006 - 2007
1. The proposed budget for MTF/INT/011/MUL for 2006 – 2007 is attached hereto. The budget of US$ 496, 210 per annum in the biennium 2006-2007 has been approved by the Thirty-sixth Session of the EUFMD held in Rome in April 2005.
2. Trust Fund MTF/INT/003/EEC will close in December 2005. Meanwhile a new EC implementing agreement is under preparation.
3. The Commission also manages an emergency Trust Fund MTF/INT/004/MUL which is held for use in FMD emergency situations. 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 is considered important by the Commission to retain such a reserve.
4. The Organization contributes in kind to the activities of the Commission by providing premises for the Secretariat, fax and telephone facilities, and some financial and legal services required to fulfil the need under the Commission’s Constitution to account to member countries. The estimate for the Regular Programme input to the activities of the Commission is US$60,000 for the period under review.
