The procedures for applying the 2007-13 financial framework are set out in the 2006 interinstitutional agreementbetween the European Parliament, the Council and the Commission. This agreement includes rules on adjustments (annual or otherwise) to and revision of the financial framework.
At the beginning of every financial year, the Commission makes a technical adjustment to the financial framework for the following year. This is done for 2 reasons:
By adjusting, the Commission can check whether the amount of own resources available is enough to cover total payment appropriations. The technical adjustment is based on the most recent data and economic forecasts available and is always presented in Spring before the draft budget for the following year is adopted by the Commission.
The financial framework and the interinstitutional agreement have been amended several times since they came into force. Each amendment was made to find financial resources to face unforeseen challenges.
