Remarks

Article 175 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU) provides that the objectives of economic, social and territorial cohesion set out in Article 174 shall be supported by the action it takes through the Structural Funds, which includes the European Social Fund (ESF). The tasks, priority objectives and the organisation of the Structural Funds are defined in accordance with Article 177 TFEU.

Article 80 of the Financial Regulation provides for financial corrections in the event of expenditure incurred in breach of applicable law.

Article 39 of Regulation (EC) No 1260/1999, Articles 100 and 102 of Regulation (EC) No 1083/2006 and Articles 85, 144 and 145 of Regulation (EU) No 1303/2013 on criteria for financial corrections by the Commission provide for specific rules on financial corrections applicable to the ESF.

Any revenue from the financial corrections carried out on that basis is entered in Article 6 5 1, 6 5 2, 6 5 3 or 6 5 4 of the statement of revenue and constitutes assigned revenue in accordance with point (c) of Article 21(3) of the Financial Regulation.

Article 177 of the Financial Regulation lays down the conditions for the repayment in full, or in part, of pre-financing payments in respect of a given operation.

Article 82 of Regulation (EC) No 1083/2006 provides for specific rules on repayment of pre-financing amounts applicable to the ESF.

Pre-financing amounts repaid shall constitute internal assigned revenue in accordance with Article 21(4) of the Financial Regulation and shall be entered in Item 6 1 5 0 or 6 1 5 7.

Measures to combat fraud are funded under Article 24 02 01.

Remarks

This appropriation is intended to provide additional support to measures against youth unemployment financed by the ESF. It represents the specific allocation to the Youth Employment Initiative under the Investment for growth and jobs goal in regions with a level of youth unemployment exceeding 25 % in 2012 or for Member States where the youth unemployment rate has increased by more than 30 % in 2012, regions that have a youth unemployment rate of more than 20 % in 2012 (‘eligible regions’). The additional EUR 3 000 000 000 allocated to this line for the 2014-2020 period is intended to provide match funding to ESF interventions in the eligible regions. This appropriation is intended to finance the creation of decent jobs.

While promoting gender equality, special attention should be paid to the situation of young women who can face gender-specific obstacles to get a good quality offer of employment, continued education, an apprenticeship or a traineeship.

This appropriation is to be used, amongst others, to support the establishment of educational structures combining non-formal education, language courses, democratic awareness and vocational training in the regions most affected by youth unemployment, both by state-actors and non-governmental organisations.

The margins available below the multiannual financial framework (MFF) ceilings for commitment appropriations for 2014-2017 will constitute a global MFF margin for commitments, to be made available over and above the ceilings established in the MFF for 2016-2020 for policy objectives related to growth and employment, in particular youth employment, as established in Council Regulation (EU, Euratom) No 1311/2013 of 2 December 2013 laying down the multiannual financial framework for the years 2014-2020 (OJ L 347, 20.12.2013, p. 884).
