FELIPE VI KING OF SPAIN to all that the present join together and act.
Know: that them cuts General have approved and I come in sanction the following law: PREAMBLE it present law has as purpose grant several credits extraordinary and a supplement of credit in the budget of the Ministry of Defense by amount total of 856.440.673,35 euros for attend to the payment of obligations contractual corresponding to programs special of armament (PEA, s), to cover needs of the Plan General of ammunition and for the realization of works in the Hospital military Central of it Defense "Gómez Ulla", within the framework of actions related to the outbreak of Ebola in Spain.
1. contractual obligations pertaining to special weapons programmes (PEA, s).
Them programs special (PEA, s) are those derivatives of the agreement between them ministries of Defense and of industry, energy and tourism, destined to the development and manufacturing of equipment and systems of weapons in which converge two features key: be pre-financiados in all or partly with credits of the Ministry of industry, energy and tourism and make them payments from the Ministry of defence starting from the time of its reception and put in service. The choice is determined by a combination of political, economic, industrial and technological needs; also, are of enormous importance for the woven industrial Spanish and require great amount of resources financial.
With these equipment and weapons systems are intended to meet the needs of the modernization of our armed forces, providing them with the best systems of weapons, equipment and infrastructure support for the fulfilment of their missions, looking primarily for: to) reach an operating standard that allows to respond and deal with the risks and threats relating to the defence of the Spanish sovereignty.
(b) meet them commitments acquired between them States members of the EU in development of it political common of security and defense to meet them committed listed in the article 28 of the Treaty of Lisbon.
(c) respond to international commitments acquired by Spain contained in the defence capabilities initiative (DCI) NATO, later redefined «Commitments of the Prague capabilities».
He system of funding is based on advances of the Ministry of industry, energy and tourism intended to the research and development; the acquisition is carried out with the Ministry of defence budget, time in which the manufacturer returns advances to the Ministry of industry, energy and tourism.
The evolution of the economy world and particularly the Spanish, has provoked the continuous reduction of them resources financial of them different sections of the budget of the State. As a consequence, the commitment levels achieved payments in the agreements of accession or contracting of modernization and in particular of the PEA, s, have been diverting from the financial capacity of the Department. This has forced to perform successive reprogramming to adapt them forecasts, redirecting them credits toward those items with greater priority; all this looking for ensure the maintenance of them levels minimum that guarantee the operation of the units giving a greater attention to them forces displaced in scenarios of conflict and to the support of them media that improve your security.
The insufficient budgetary allocation requires to provide additional funding to meet the financial commitments arising from the tight contractual commitments. Since the Administration is obliged to meet the payment of obligations contractual; and, next to it, the need not to delay your subscription not to cause damage to third parties, they are extraordinary and urgent need for reasons which justify the granting of the special credit.
2. ammunition General plan.
He Plan General of ammunition defines and collects all the needs relating to the ammunition whose obtaining is raises within the time of duration of the Plan until 2025.
The capacity of annual investment that comes with in recent years was insufficient to meet the needs of ammunition, as well as to keep contractual commitments and the maintenance of armament and material currently in inventory. As a result, the current investment capacity is intended to cover the needs of ammunition for training and preparation of the force, being relegated to the background the Constitution and maintenance of Guerra reserve funding.
This raises the need for an extraordinary credit enabling to remedy some of these shortcomings in the present year 2015, focusing on acquisitions to concrete needs, seeking to solve the deficiencies that present levels of certain types of munitions.
