The present Royal Decree-Law aims to grant some extraordinary credits and a supplement of credit in the budget of the Ministry of defence in total amount of 856.440.673,35 euros to meet the payment of contractual obligations to special weapons programmes (PEA, s), to meet needs of the General Plan of ammunition and for carrying out works in the Central Military Hospital "Gómez Ulla" defense , in the frame of activities related with the outbreak of Ebola in Spain.

1. contractual obligations pertaining to special weapons programmes (PEA, s).

Special programmes (PEA, s) are those derived from the agreement between the ministries of Defense and of industry, energy and tourism, intended for the development and manufacture of equipment and weapons systems that converge two key features: be pre-financiados in whole or in part by loans from the Ministry of industry, energy and tourism and to make payments from the Ministry of defence from the moment of its reception and commissioning. The choice is determined by a combination of needs political, economic, industrial and technological; also, they are of enormous importance for the Spanish industrial fabric and require large amounts of financial resources.

(With these teams and systems of weapons is intended to meet them needs of the modernization of our forces armed, giving them of them best systems of weapons, teams e infrastructure of support for the compliance of their missions, looking for primarily: to) reach a standard operating that allow respond and face them risks and threats relating to the defense of the sovereignty Spanish.

(b) comply with the commitments entered into between the Member States of the EU in development of the common security and defence policy to accomplish the tasks listed in article 28 of the Treaty of Lisbon.

(c) respond to them commitments international acquired by Spain contained in the initiative of capabilities of Defense (DCI) of the NATO, later redefined «commitments of the capabilities of Prague».

The financing system is based on the Ministry of industry, energy and tourism advances intended for research and development; the payment of the acquisitions is carried out with budget of the Ministry of Defense, time in that the manufacturer returns them advances to the Ministry of industry, energy and tourism.

The evolution of the economy worldwide and particularly the Spanish, has caused the continuous reduction in the financial resources of the various 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 make successive reprogramming in order to adapt the forecasts, redirecting appropriations for those items with higher 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 this, the need of not delay your manure to not cause damages to third, constitute them reasons of extraordinary and urgent need that justify the award of the credit extraordinary through real decree-law.

2. ammunition General plan.

The General Plan of ammunition defines and collect the needs relating to ammunition which arises within the time 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. Consequence of this, the current capacity of investment is intended to cover them needs of ammunition for training and preparation of the force, being relegated to a second flat it funding of the Constitution and maintenance of the book of Guerra.

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.
