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 political priorities will be turned into concrete actions.
Every Commission department publishes a multi-annual strategic plan and an annual management plan based on the Commission's political priorities.
At the end of the year, all departments draft an annual activity report on their performance in achieving targets set in their strategic/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.
