1 Performance Framework 2014-2020 Jan Marek ZiółkowskiEvaluation and European Semester UnitDG for Regional and Urban PolicyBrussels, March 15th, 2013
2 Results Orientation vs Performance Framework Interlinked but distinct:Results orientation is wider and locates the programme in its contextPerformance Framework is about efficient implementation of the programme and it will not answer the impact question
3 Challenges for Performance Frameworks Keeping it as simple as possible (minimise number of indicators)Coverage of the Priority AxisSetting realistic milestones and targetsConsistency within a MS for similar priorities (should be described in Partnership Agreement)3
4 Milestones (intermediate targets) Building blocksPriority levelMilestones (intermediate targets)TargetsSet to be achieved by the end of 2018Formally reviewed in 2019Set to be achieved by the end of 2022Formally reviewed in 2024They should berealistic, achievable, relevant, capturing essential information on the progress of a priority;consistent with the nature and character of the specific objectives of the priority;transparent, with objectively verifiable targets and the source data identified and, where possible, publicly available;verifiable, without imposing a disproportionate administrative burden;consistent across the programmes, where appropriate.
5 Building blocks Indicators (priority level) Milestones (intermediate targets)TargetsFinancialMust be includedTotal amount of eligible expenditure entered into the accounting system of the certifying authority (except for EAFRD)*OutputNot additional – chosen from among indicators already selected for the programmeLimited number (majority of resources allocated)*ResultTo be used only where appropriate (close link to supported policy interventions)Different approach fund by fundKey implementation stepsTo be used when necessary (no outputs)Should not be used as outputs must be delivered by then
6 Agreeing the Performance Framework Partnership Agreementthe methodology and mechanisms to ensure consistency in the functioning of the performance framework across programmes and ESI FundsProgrammesa table including information on the priority axis concerned, the indicator and its measurement unit, its milestone and target valuesinformation on the basis for selection of indicators, milestones and targets / helpful, but optional
7 Performance reviewexamines the performance of the programmes at the level of priorities against the milestones set for the end of 2018carried out in 2019, based on the data input by the managing authorities into the SFC2014 system (no scope for negotiations)within two months from the receipt of the annual implementation report for 2018, the European Commission adopts a decision, by means of implementing act, to determine for each Member State and ESI Fund, the programmes and priorities which have attained their milestones*
8 Allocation of performance reserve Reserve = 5% of the resources allocated to each CSF Fund and Member State, with the exception of resources allocated to the ETC goal and to Title V of the EMFF*Within 3 months from the EC decision on performing priorities and programmes, the MS proposes the attribution of the performance reserve among the priorities and programmes set out in the EC decision.Within 2 months from receiving the MS proposal, the EC either objects, if the proposal is not in line with the decision on performing programmes and priorities or approves the amendment of the relevant programme.
9 Suspension of payments The EC may suspend all or part of an interim payment of a priority of a programme if the following two cumulative conditions are met:a serious failure* to achieve the milestones (only financial and output indicators, and key implementation steps) due to clearly identified implementation weakness.The EC has communicated previously to the managing authority this clearly identified implementation weaknesses and the MS has failed to take the necessary corrective action to address it.
10 Financial corrections At the end of programming period, the EC may apply financial corrections if the following three cumulative conditions are met:a serious failure* to achieve the targets (only financial and output indicators, and key implementation steps) due to clearly identified implementation weakness.the EC has communicated previously to the managing authority this clearly identified implementation weaknesses and the MS has failed to take the necessary corrective action to address it.no significant socioeconomic, environmental developments or implementation delays beyond control of the MS that prevented the achievement of targets.
11 European Parliament position Performance framework and reviewMilestones set for 2016 and 2018, for review in 2017 and 2019, based on the information provided in the Progress ReportsSuspension of paymentsIn case of failure to achieve the milestones (whichever indicator); the EC may call the MS to propose amendments to the relevant programmes. If the MS does not respond satisfactorily within three months, the EC may suspend all or part of an interim payment of a priority of a programme
