Performed by single SAI

Descripción INEA’s mission is to support the Commission, project promoters and stakeholders by providing expertise and programme management to infrastructure, research and innovation projects in the fields of transport, energy and telecommunications and to promote synergies between these activities. INEA has been entrusted with 93 % of the total CEF budget and 7 % of the H2020 budget. These total €33.6 billion, which is the largest budget managed by an EU executive agency. We found that INEA has fulfilled the delegated tasks as defined in its mandate and delivered expected benefits, with some limitations, related to framework constraints. We found shortcomings in the otherwise well organised CEF selection procedures, risks in the implementation of the programme and weaknesses in performance reporting. We make recommendations to Commission and INEA aimed at improving the potential for synergies, strengthening the framework for INEA’s management of the delegated programmes, ensuring greater harmonisation and transparency of the CEF project selection procedures, setting better conditions for timely implementation of the CEF and redesigning the performance framework to better monitor CEF project results. ECA special report pursuant to Article 287(4), second subparagraph, TFEU.
