Department Administration

The Administration is the service provider for all of the Institute’s departments. It sees to the infrastructure, equipment, personnel recruitment, all personnel matters, the steering and control of income and expenditure as well as the organisational and technical upkeep of the Institute’s premises and buildings. The Administration department also prepares, co-ordinates and organises the procurement of appliances, material and furniture. The department issues organisational rules for the Institute and enters into service agreements with the staff council and contracts with external service providers. Furthermore, the Administration department steers and co-ordinates the Institute’s personnel requirements in line with the posts allocated in the budget.

At the same time, the Administration is responsible for ensuring compliance with statutory provisions. In the personnel area this applies more particularly to civil servant, collective bargaining and labour law and in the budget to the provisions of budgetary law and in procurement to the award provisions in the civil service. The personnel section handles labour law disputes; the legal affairs department deals with legal disputes involving third parties.

The department cooperates with the BMEL administration department and undertakes tasks for the personnel, organisation section and budget sections.
