The law 30/1992, of 26 November, legal regime of public administrations and common administrative procedure (LRJ-PAC), in its third additional provision, foresees the need to adapt to the same regulatory standards of the different administrative procedures.


The basic lines of the process of adaptation is established by agreement of the Council of Ministers of 15 January 1993. Highlights including the desirability of simplifying and reducing the number of rules governing administrative procedures. This will produce tangible benefits not only for citizens but also for the Manager of administrative procedures. As a result, it is not only meet standards, but at the same time improve the management of the procedures.


They are, therefore, these criteria that have been followed for the elaboration of the procedure for granting aid and public subsidies. Probably, the main novelty of this procedure come determined by their very existence, since it implies the regulation in a single rule in the procedure for the granting of such aid and subsidies, without prejudice to the substantive legislation contained in its special provisions and section 4. Chapter 1. Title II of the consolidated text of the General Law on budget, approved by Royal Legislative Decree 1091 / 1988.


The result of all this is the configuration of a procedure that agile and flexible it is estimated from the point of view of functional and suitable to the principles of the LRJ-cap from the regulatory point of view. This is especially necessary in a field, grants, so closely related to the citizen and that, therefore, can give the extent of the effort of modernization of the General Administration of the State.


Taking into account the diversity of competence schemes that are applicable to material several areas in which the subvencional activity, the new legislation requires your application grants managed entirely by the General Administration of the State and its entities linked and dependent, as well as those of other subsidies established in matters in which corresponds to state the full regulatory competition; the regulation of the procedure for granting is one facet of the legislation. Finally, in specific cases that the management phases are carried out by different public administrations, the new legislation requires enforcing partial, limited to those phases of the procedure, managed by the General Administration of the State and its entities linked or dependent.


Applicability to procedures the principle of concurrence and the granting of some of the subsidies on competition have advised to establish a delimitation of the concept of competitive, referred to those subsidies, charged to same credit budget, they imply the existence of a plurality of requests and their comparison in a single procedure, in accordance with the criteria set out in the regulatory standard or the call.


On the other hand, respect for the primacy of Community law justifies the supplementary application of the rules of the procedure of awarding the grants that respond in its origin to regulations of the European communities.


The set up procedure requires that, in the cases included in its scope of application, requests and requests are assessed according to criteria that the person concerned will know.


The above criteria will serve, also unfounded for the necessary motivation of the resolution of the procedure, in line with required by article 54 of the LRJ-PAC.


Finally, and collecting the principles established in the LRJ-PAC, foresees the possibility of that procedure be completed through a conventional completion between the public administration and the applicants, guaranteeing full respect for the object, terms and purpose of the grant, as well as the assessment criteria established in each case.
