The Chamber of Accounts urges the Government of Moreno to improve the management of European funds

He says it with the language of the reports of the Chamber of Accounts of Andalusia, but he states it with total clarity: The Andalusian Government must speed up the processes and put the batteries when it comes to executing the millionaire extraordinary funds approved in the European Council July 2020 to respond to the crisis generated by the covid pandemic.

With these words he expresses it the body that oversees the money of the Junta de Andalucía: “In the year 2021, the degree of global execution amounts to 10.37% […]. As of May 31, 2022, the overall degree of execution stands at 4.99%, considering what has been executed with respect to the total credit budgeted in the years 2021 and 2022”. The report considers it to be “low”, that is, they should have spent more.

Then he adds: “It is proposed to establish measures that allow effective execution and greater agility in the processing of the different projects aimed at exhausting the extraordinary funding allocated […]given the associated execution time horizon [a los fondos europeos], thus maximizing the impact of this additional funding source on public services. Among these measures, the simplification and rationalization of all phases of the procedures, as well as the implementation of automated administrative actions.

means and resources

The report does not control spending, where the money has gone, but rather whether the Board has organized itself and put the means and resources into operation in order to take advantage of the so-called funds Next Generation. The work concludes that although it has prepared regulations, it has not added new staff nor has it been properly coordinated and, therefore, everything is still green to absorb the funds.

Andalusia corresponds to May 31, 2022, according to the Chamber, 3,610 million euros, which are mostly managed through five ministries: Development, Education, Equality, Finance and Agriculture. The European plan rests on four transversal axes, which are the ecological transition, digital transformation, territorial and social cohesion and gender equality. There is a term until 2024 to execute this financing and two more years to certify everything.

European money is distributed through non-refundable transfers and credits. “In both cases, the disbursement of the funds is made in tranches and is linked to the fulfillment of milestones and objectives, since the management model is oriented to the achievement of results,” says the Chamber.
