Dear Agriculture and Rural Development,

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents which contain the following information:

a) CSV or XLS dataset on financial corrections applied to all member states during 2000-2015 (or even before 2000 if possible) - for funding relating to the Common Agriculture Policy;

b) CSV or XLS dataset on financial corrections applied to all member states during 2007-2013 - differentiated between Pillar I and Pillar II (Rural Development);

c) CSV or XLS dataset on exact amount of funds member states that have been paid back to the Community budget during 2000-2015, due audit errors / sanctions (etc) for the misuse European funds relating to agriculture (direct payment and rural development OPs) managed by your Directorate.

This is also a follow up to request entitled: Financial Corrections EU-28 and to request: GestDem 2016/3466.

In terms of definitions, there may be a difference between financial corrections applied to a state and the exact amount of money that, all in all, member state have paid back to the Community budget, after legal agreements with the European institutions and the closure of Operational Programmes that your Directorate manages. That is why request (a) is different from request (c).

I am confident that your services have such data sets or can easily create such data sets with the modern IT tools used inside the European Commission.

This information is of public interest and is useful to obtain a good understanding of the amount of funding that has been paid back by national authorities into the Community budget, for the reasons stated above.

I hope this request is clear, yet if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.

Yours faithfully,

Neculai-Cristian Surubaru
