ArmInfo. Inspection bodies of Armenia will have to wait to receive official cars. On July 11, at the government meeting, a proposal was made to redistribute 80 cars, which are on the balance sheet of the Ministry of Finance of the Republic of Armenia, between 6 inspection bodies.
Eduard Aghajanyan, head of the government's administration, who presented the draft decision, noted that it is envisaged to allocate 7 cars from the balance sheet of the RA Ministry of Finance and transfer them to the Health Inspection Body. Another 73 cars were to be distributed among the rest of the inspection bodies. This measure, according to Aghajanian, is necessary to ensure the full-fledged activities of the inspection bodies, which employ about 1 thousand people. Basically, cars will be used as attendants to perform the functions of these bodies. In addition, as noted by the head of the government apparatus, these cars are used de facto by inspectorates, today's decision is intended to solve the problem de jure.
However, as the head of the government Nikol Pashinyan noted, today's draft decision contradicts to the policy of the new government, aimed at optimizing the public administration system and increasing its efficiency. He removed the issue from the agenda, proposing once again to discuss and make a decision that is 100% consistent with government policy.
To note, however, that according to the reference document of the draft decision published on the government's website, it was about 91 cars, not 80. It was planned to distribute official cars between the following bodies:
For the maintenance of the Food Safety Inspectorate - 31 machines;
Health and Labor Inspectorate - 10 cars;
Inspectorate for the protection of nature and mineral resources - 30 cars;
Inspection body on education - 3 cars;
Inspection body for control over the market - 3 cars;
Inspection body for urban planning, technical and fire safety - 14 cars
The rationale noted that it is necessary to establish the number of vehicles for inspection bodies, among which one car is provided for their managers.
