The same principles of updating of budgets as those applied to the mandatory activities of ESA will be applied for the updating of the special project budgets. Therefore, it is the index of the consumer prices harmonized (HICP) in the euro area index published by Eurostat in January 1 of each year, which is taken into account. The budget will be updated annually based on the HICP. The numbers are the figures for the month of November two years before the current year (for 2006, we will use the November 2004 figures).
Each year, two shooting ranges at ESA Headquarters send a summary of the figures of the previous year regarding actual expenditures and revenues, as well as a breakdown showing the costs of each campaign. The summary of expenditures is also presented to the CAP. Spending figures are divided into four categories, namely personnel, current expenditures, facilities and capital expenditures. Each category is also followed by an explanatory note. Actual spending figures form the basis to the breakdown of the four categories that should be applied at the beginning of the following year with the new budget figures. The new budget figures are prepared by ESA taking into account the current HICPS.
Range authorities the ability to reallocate the percentage of the different categories of expenditure in the fiscal year.
Pursuant to chapter II, art. 4, by. 2 of the financial regulation, ESA/C (2004) 3, the CAP and the Committee of administration and finance are asked to recommend to the participating Member States to approve the draft budget for the following year during a session of the Council.
