Financial Guard and Customs Authority to be dissolved

The Government will dissolve the Financial Guard and the Customs Authority, and the two institutions’ prerogatives will be taken over by the National Tax Administration Agency (ANAF), Mediafax reports. As a consequence, ANAF’s new activity will be divided between budget revenue-collection and administration, tax inspection, customs operations, financial guard operations and support-structures. For now, all these changes are part of a bill for a Government resolution.

In the institution’s new organizational chart, the president will have, as subordinates, four deputy presidents, a secretary general, civil servants and the on-contract staff. The maximum number of positions will be reduced by almost 5,000, at 29,100, and it will include the president and deputy presidents’ offices, as well as positions corresponding to the dignitaries’ cabinets.

According to the background note accompanying the bill, the restructuring will also presuppose the merging of other bodies with similar prerogatives within ANAF, that is, some support-structures, such as public audit, public investments and acquisitions, professional training, IT services, communications and PR and international cooperation. Following the restructuring, 90 executive positions and 84 deputy executive positions will be reduced.

Moving on to another topic, the Government will reduce, by 14 pc, the total number of jobs in the Public Finance Ministry (MFP), which results into 5,175 positions cut, out of which over 95 pc from ANAF, according to another bill for a Government resolution. Thus, the total number of positions approved for the Finance Ministry, under those authority ANAF, the National Forecast Committee and the National Authority for Property Retrocession operate, is reduced from 36,202 to 31,027. The ministry’s own apparatus will be reduced by 11 pc, that is, by 207 positions, up to 1,654 positions.
