of 26 January 2005

setting up a European Administrative School

(2005/118/EC)

THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT, THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION, THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES, THE COURT OF JUSTICE, THE COURT OF AUDITORS, THE EUROPEAN ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL COMMITTEE, THE COMMITTEE OF THE REGIONS, THE EUROPEAN OMBUDSMAN,

Having regard to the Staff Regulations of officials of the European Communities and to the Conditions of employment of other servants of the European Communities, as laid down by Council Regulation (EEC, Euratom, ECSC) No 259/68(1), and in particular Article 2(2) of the Staff Regulations,

Having consulted the Staff Regulations Committee,

Whereas:

(1) The institutions should step up their investment in the professional training of their staff.

(2) Greater inter-institutional cooperation in this field would bring synergies in terms of the necessary human and financial resources while also reinforcing exchanges between the institutions and the spread of common values and harmonised professional practices.

(3) To this end, a joint inter-institutional body should be endowed with resources for certain types of professional training aimed at officials and other servants of the European Communities.

(4) For reasons of economy and efficiency, this joint body should be attached administratively to an existing inter-institutional body, namely the European Communities Personnel Selection Office created by Decision 2002/620/EC of the European Parliament, the Council, the Commission, the Court of Justice, the Court of Auditors, the Economic and Social Committee, the Committee of the Regions and the Ombudsman(2), at least during the start-up phase,
