An external evaluation on the operation of each Agency has to be carried out every three years and has to include a cost-benefit analysis according to Article 25 of Council Regulation (EC) No 58/2003 laying down the statute for executive agencies.

The analysis performed must assess ‘the costs of coordination and checks, the impact on human resources, possible savings within the general budgetary framework of the European Union, efficiency and flexibility in the implementation of outsourced tasks, simplification of the procedures used, proximity of outsourced activities to final beneficiaries, visibility of the Community as promoter of the Community programme concerned and the need to maintain an adequate level of know-how inside the Commission’.
