0

Under this framework contract the European Parliament commissioned the provision of an annual study on the implementation of the Integrated Guidelines for Growth and Jobs in the individual EU Member States as well as from an overall EU perspective.

The studies had to provide:
• comprehensive reports on the implementation of the Integrated Guidelines in each Member State and the progress made until the end of the year for which assessment is requested;
• an assessment of the implementation situation of the Integrated Guidelines in the EU as a whole;
• an assessment of the implementing situation regarding the specific national measures stated in the National Reform Programmes of each Member State;
• an assessment of the progress made on Community level in implementing the measures contained in the European Commission’s “Community Lisbon Programme”.
Furthermore, the annual study should:
• point out and explain best practices in the Member States as well as on Community level as regards measures taken and implementation processes conducted;
• comment on an appropriate timetable for further reforms in the Member States as well as on Community level;
• evaluate which further reforms could be implemented together at the same time and which reforms must be implemented consecutively;
• evaluate the relationship between reforms and the evolution of public deficits, employment rates and growth rates in the Member States.
