The Commission publishes its plans for upcoming work, and the reports of work it has accomplished, during the annual strategic planning and programming cycle.
The Commission work programme sets out a plan of action for the next 12 months. It describes how the political priorities will be turned into concrete actions.
The strategic plans of departments are built around the Commission-level general objectives and department-level specific objectives.
Every year, each Commission department establishes a management plan defining the main actions and outputs for the year ahead and how these will contribute to meeting the objectives set.
At the end of the year, all departments produce an annual activity report on their performance in achieving the targets set in their strategic and management plans.
Every year the Commission produces a report on the results achieved with the EU budget and how the previous year's budget was managed.
