More money for intelligence and home affairs in 2011

The only institutions to benefit from a wage fund increase by over 10 per cent in 2011, except for the Ministry of Public Finance, are the so-called organizations of force: the intelligence services and the Ministry of Administration and Interior. For the rest, pay-roll expenditures in the state institutions are smaller than in 2010, aiming for the RON 39 bln envelope imposed by the IMF, the Saptamana financiara magazine stated yesterday. According to the quoted source, whilst personnel expenditures are reduced by 34 per cent at the Ministry of Agriculture and by 20 per cent at the Ministry of Justice, the employees of the Romanian Intelligence Service (SRI) will have 10.28 per cent higher income than this year, followed by the Protection and Security Service (SPP) – up 11.10 per cent, the Foreign Intelligence Service (SIE) – up 11.66 per cent and the Special Telecommunications Service (STS) – up 14.58 per cent. The workers of the Ministry of Administration and Interior – or, perhaps, just some of them, will be making more money in 2011, as, under the 2011 draft budget law, MAI has budgeted personnel expenditures of over RON 6 bln, more by 11.13 per cent than in 2010. The Ministry of National Defence (MoD) also has a 3.67 per cent bigger wage fund. And yet, news is not entirely good for the employees of all these institutions, especially regular ones, because, at least according to the draft budget, SPP, STS, MApN and MAI workers will need to start subscribing to Social Security next year. In some cases, the increase in personnel expenditures (gross income) does not cover the amounts to be subscribed to the social insurance budget. To compensate the deficit, the budgets of MoD and MAI contains no merit wages, leadership indemnity, bonuses for length of service, holiday premiums, paid extra hours, award fund or fund for cumulated functions for their workers.
