EY working with the EU institutions

Doing more with less

EU institutions and agencies face rapidly growing pressure to rationalize their operations and optimize their use of human and financial resources. Decisions by the European Commission clearly demonstrate that efficiency is one of its key priorities: a policy of zero growth in human resources, a 5% reduction of staff in all EU institutions by 2018 and the goal of maintaining administrative expenditures under inflation rates as per the 2014–2020 Multiannual Financial Framework. These targets point to a need to deliver demonstrable impact and value to citizens within the confines of increasingly limited resources. This can be done through performance improvement programs that build structures and processes in alignment with targeted results and efficient use of resources. At the same time, the optimal use of information technology and digital tools is critical.

EY can help EU institutions and agencies pursue these important aims through a set of tailored services that aim to improve structures, processes and resources.

We can help EU institutions and agencies improve their performance and be more efficient by working to align their structure and operations with their strategy. To do this, we draw on tried-and-tested methods and an extensive track record in helping corporate clients, as well as national governments, improve performance by streamlining their operations. In fact, we have helped many European governments become more efficient and reduce their administrative burden. Underpinning these capabilities are our strengths and skills in day-to-day operations, management and strategic decision-making. These skills are concentrated in following areas arears:
