It was pointed out that the autonomy of investment and contributing organizations was undermined due to Gyeonggi Province’s excessive consignment agency.
Representative Kim Seon-young of the Democratic Party of Korea (proportional), a member of the Economic and Labor Committee of the Gyeonggi Provincial Council, reexamined the problems of entrusted agency projects that infringe on the autonomy of investment and contribution institutions under the jurisdiction of the Economic Investment Office during the Gyeonggi Province comprehensive audit on the 21st, and urged the preparation of practical measures.
Rep. Kim said, “The public consignment method that Gyeonggi Province delivers to investment and contribution institutions is bound to harm the autonomy of investment and contribution institutions,” and “It is a violation of autonomy for investment and contribution institutions to receive projects from Gyeonggi Province and passively carry out the projects.” “The limitations, such as employment instability, are obvious,” he pointed out.
According to Rep. Kim, the Gyeonggi Province Economic and Science Promotion Agency, a public institution under the jurisdiction of the Economic Investment Office, had a public entrusted project cost of 144.2 billion won, but its original purpose project cost was only 21.2 billion won. In the case of the Gyeonggi Job Foundation, another public institution, 93% of the total budget of 178.7 billion won was public consignment project expenses (135.7 billion won).
Representative Kim said, “As pointed out in the administrative affairs audit of the Economic Investment Office on the 10th, special measures must be prepared to reduce the excessive scale of public entrustment,” and “The Economic Investment Office is responsible for the investment and investment under its jurisdiction.” “I hope that they will actively communicate with the contributing organizations to establish alternatives and report them to the National Assembly,” he said.
Rep. Kim emphasized the unification of employment and labor policies and asked, “I hope you will think deeply about ways to integrate employment and labor to provide better jobs to Gyeonggi-do residents through a paradigm shift in labor policy.”
