​​The European Court of Auditors examined the performance of the spending programmes under the EU budget at the end of 2021, based on performance information from the Commission and other sources, including its own recent audit and review work. The main theme of this year’s report on performance is the mainstreaming of horizontal policy priorities into the EU budget. It assessed whether they had been incorporated in selected EU spending programmes, and whether the Commission applied an appropriate performance framework to measure the EU budget’s contribution for such priorities.
