Today, the Executive has adopted an emergency ordinance that allows local authorities with few employees, and therefore, encountering difficulties in carrying out their activity, to fill sole vacancies, the Executive Spokesperson, Mrs. Ioana Muntean has stated following the Government meeting.
The Government Spokesperson has detailed that at the national level there will be kept the rule according to which, at seven people leaving the system, one may be employed. " Sole vacancy means on the one hand, the job whose tasks, by its content and nature, cannot be taken over by another employee or, on the other hand, if there is a compartment that has only vacancies, a post will be considered sole and can be occupied, " Mrs. Ioana Muntean has stated.
Filling the sole vacancies within the local authorities can be approved by the main credit chief accountant, with the Government’s approval, through Memorandum initiated by MAI(Ministry of Administration and Interior). These proceedings are initiated on the proposal of the prefects, on the basis of demands of the main credit chief accountants of the local budgets, Mrs. Ioana Muntean has stated.
The Government Spokesperson has stated that if a municipality has sole vacant posts and wants to fill them, the mayor will argue and ask the Prefect to start the procedure, namely, to receive the positive opinion from the Government, through the MAI. After this step, that municipality will be able to organize competition and approve the job filling.
The legal document adopted today will maintain the obligation to occupy nationally only 15% of vacancies for compliance with personnel expenses of 7.5% of GDP, the Government Spokesperson has stated.
Mrs. Ioana Muntean has also stated that according to Ordinance 32/2010, by the Memorandum, the same procedure is applied to central authorities, under the authority or coordination of the Government, or Ministries: MPF centralizes vacancies nationally, while the Government decides how to allocate these positions. So far, the Government has given approval for the employment of staff working for attracting EU funds.
"Exception to the regulations adopted today are pre-university state educational units, where employment is specifically regulated by Ordinance 34/2009 and filling one of seven vacancies is sought throughout the entire university system," Mrs. Ioana Muntean has stated.
