The work of the Directorate for Inspection Affairs, ie the project of merging inspections under one administration, did not achieve satisfactory results, which is why priority should be given to the decentralized system of inspections, ie the return of inspections to the jurisdiction of line ministries.

This was concluded in the Analysis of the efficiency of the activities of the Directorate for Inspection Affairs, which was adopted by the Government yesterday.

“Preference is given to a decentralized model that enables more efficient realization of the responsibility of the inspection, ie the head of the inspection body, and also more transparent realization of the political responsibility of the line minister for the situation in one area. On that occasion, the Ministry of Public Administration, Digital Society and Media is in charge of preparing amendments to the Law on Inspection Supervision “, it is stated in the announcement of the Government.

The analysis states that the centralized model (merging inspections into one administration, which was done almost ten years ago) should have contributed to better coordination of inspections, but that satisfactory results have not been achieved. Previous inspections were in the competent ministries, for example the Labor Inspection in the Ministry of Labor, the market inspection in the Ministry of Economy…

“The general assessment is that despite decades of efforts to profile itself as a single inspection body, which in cooperation with ministries, other bodies and associations contributes to the economic and social development of Montenegro, limited effects and the current trend of excluding inspections from the Administration call into question the appropriateness of the existing system. inspection supervision.
It is indisputable that both models have their advantages and weaknesses, although the decentralized model convincingly prevails in the comparative review “, the analysis states.

Yesterday, the government also selected candidates for boards of directors in several state companies, based on the principle that some members are from the parties of the new parliamentary majority, and some will be independent experts, auditors and those who reported irregularities in the work of previous leaders. It was announced that these decisions will be announced later.
