The dataset contains information on the activity of the Publications Office of the European Union in 2018, based on its Annual Activity Report (AAR). It details the achievements and initiatives taken during the year and the resources used. The performance indicators and data available are grouped into three main categories: key results and progress towards the achievement of objectives, organisational management and financial control, and financial statements.
The AAR is a management report of the Director-General of the Publications Office to the College of Commissioners on the performance of his duties. It is a key component of the accountability chain within the Commission, in which the Director-General takes responsibility for the management of resources, by reference to the objectives and related indicators set out in the Strategic and Management Plans and the efficiency and effectiveness of internal control systems, including an overall assessment of the costs and benefits of controls.
The report is available in English and must be finalised by 31 March each year. The AARs of all directorates-general of the European Commission are then communicated to the European Parliament, the Council and the European Court of Auditors.
