From the European Commission - Fact Sheet titled European Agenda on Migration: Securing Europe's External Borders and dated 15 December 2015, we see the sentence
Today's proposals will entail a gradual increase of the Agency budget from the €143 million originally planned for 2015 up to €238 million in 2016 to €281 million in 2017, reaching€322 [sic] million in 2020 when all additional staff will be recruited.
This statement is in regard to the budget of the European Border and Coast Guard Agency (Frontex).
Is it normal for the EU to pre-plan budgets for its agencies up to 5 years in advance?
How was the decision of €322 reached?
Is the EU consistent in actually allocating a future budget at the future date based on earlier decisions? (i.e. Is Frontex likely to have a €322 budget in FY 2020.)
