In his annual report, General Inspector Leandros Rakintzis reported that measures that should have been instituted in 2014 never took place, therefore Greece’s public sector remains steeped in mismanagement, corruption and impunity. In his report he uses several examples of cases where serious offenses and crimes were committed by public sector employees who were never punished or even disciplined.
Some measures that were not taken are:
The establishment of locality impediment to officials in critical sectors such as justice, police, coast guard, tax office, real estate state services, urban planning, inspection, etc. As a result, local citizens get preferential treatment.
Allocation of powers and human resources per institution or service in accordance with the real needs. For that, new organization charts are needed including design and job description.
The establishment of internal human resources mobility, alternately in positions of responsibility, for better functioning of the service for the public interest.
The privatization of those areas of the State, not conforming to its role as imperium, without the State losing its regulatory role.
Unionists must be restricted only to their purely trade union duties.
The strengthening of mechanisms and control systems both in central and local government, with substantial and effective control of the Decentralized Administration in Local Authorities and their dependent legal persons.
The placement of employes to another department when they are promoted, because many times they are unable to exercise authority on employees who were previously their colleagues.
