The General Secretariat of the Romanian Government (SGG) must be restructured as it has too many functions and a more consolidated structure should be considered, shows a confidential report of the World Bank, obtained by HotNews.ro. According to the document, the number of agencies which report directly to the prime minister or the SGG is too high and should be cut.
In many cases, the agencies double the function of ministries, according to the report. Its authors also recommend a reduction of the number of emergency ordinances issued by the government.
The stated purpose of the report is to improve the political performance of the government by consolidating processes and public institutions. This is needed along efforts to improve the management of public finance and the quality of public spending, the document says.
