Agricultural expenditure is financed from the general EU budget - the European Agricultural Guarantee Fund (EAGF), which finances direct payments to farmers and measures to regulate agricultural markets and the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD). The Commission does not pay the payments directly to the beneficiaries, this is done by the accredited paying agencies of each Member State.
AGIS serves the Paying Agencies for the administration of support in the Rural Development Program and National Support, as well as for the management of CMOs.
It provides comprehensive financial management and reporting of payment flows by the Agency under European Commission directives and regulations and allows for transfers of payments between the Agency and the Implementing Bank.
AGIS is operated in a common Internet browser at the end-user level. Data and application layers run in ORACLE (Database and ORACLE Application Server). This ensures high system performance with hundreds of simultaneous users in dozens of regional offices linked to paying agency centers.
The robustness of the application is demonstrated by the fact that the system menu contains a total of 3150 items and the application contains 9450 functions.
EU rural development policy helps EU rural areas face a wide range of economic, environmental and social challenges of the 21st century. It is called the "second pillar" of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP), complementing the system of direct payments to farmers and measures to manage the agricultural markets of the CMO (the "first pillar").

The CMO sets out the parameters for interventions in agricultural markets and provides sectoral support (eg for fruit and vegetables, wine, olive oil, school programs).

It deals with issues related to international trade (eg licenses, tariff quota management, inward and outward processing).
