The cabinet, at a today’s meeting, ruled to reform the National Food Safety Agency (ANSA).
ANSA’s reorganization sees, inter alia, the optimization of the territorial subdivisions. Ten subdivisions without legal personality, according to the model of the State Chancellery (territorial subdivisions), are to be created out of those 23 units existing at present. As a result, the number of leadership positions will decrease by 100 units, from 244 offices to 145 ones. Thus, the share of leadership offices will diminish from 20 to 12 per cent. At the same time, the Agency will strengthen its powers which deal with the carrying out of controls and ensuring the food security.
The powers of the territorial structures’ management will be taken over by ANSA’s central apparatus; decision-makers will thus consolidate the system of internal managerial control in the institutional integrity sector.
The reformation of the National Food Safety Agency is reasoned by the need to provide public services efficiently, transparently and in a centralized way.
