European Commission - Secretariat-General

The Secretariat-General is at the heart of the European Commission as an institution and of its civil service. Under the authority of the President, it serves the College, oversees the implementation of the Commission’s political priorities, and ensures the collegiality, consistency, efficiency and regularity of the Commission’s action. To this end, the Secretariat-General is tasked with a range of policy development, steering and coordination functions, upstream and downstream of the decisions of the Commission, internally and externally.
