Further information:

A performance framework is deemed necessary to guarantee the highest standards of financial management of the MFF 2021-2027, in order to achieve its key objectives and deliver value for citizens across the European Union (EU). Such framework comprises the tools and procedures necessary to set objectives, measure and monitor progress towards them. It covers all EU programmes. It builds on the framework used for the previous MFF.

This Communication sets out the main features and functions of the performance framework. It explains how the information generated helps drive the EU’s political goals, improve the capacity to react flexibly to unforeseen urgencies, ensure accountability, and allow the EU to communicate effectively with stakeholders and citizens about the EU budget and how it adds value to the lives of EU citizens.
