"Towards better spending in shared management: a more cooperative model of parliamentary scrutiny" In view of the last annual reports issued by the European Commission and the European Court of Auditors about the administrative weaknesses in the so-called first level checks in Member States, the Committee on Budgetary Control organised a focused exchange of views with national parliaments on specific issues relating to the management of EU funds by national management authorities.

The exchanges of views addressed three specific themes:

• Session I: Shared management: how to balance trust and control?
The effectiveness of national management and control systems and the reliability of the data collected by the Member States,
• Session II: Stop to the nonsense of "use it or lose it" Towards a more performance driven approach of
spending,
• Session III: A new model of cooperation between the European Union and the Member States'
administrations.
