Referring to the meeting of The Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research, with supervision of Dr. Yusuf Goran, the Minister of Higher Education and Scientific Research, a decision was made on 22nd of March in which forced the universities to review their administration hierarchy. Then, a committee to follow and fulfil the decision was created.
In this context, after reviewing the hierarchy of universities’ administration, it was sent to the Ministry. Then, a committee of the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research studied the hierarchy of the universities one-by-one.
In doing this, the committee of the reviewing the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research’s bureaus and administration with the supervision of Dr. Khatab Shekhani, the head of administration bureau and finance of the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research, had a meeting on 16th of March at the Ministry headquarters’ meeting room.
In the meeting, Dr. Khatab Shekhani had a brief on the Kurdistan Regional Government’s strife on the way of increasing revenue and decreasing expenses. He said that one of the steps is reducing the number of hierarchy of administration and directorates in Kurdistan Region. In doing this and referring to the steps of Kurdistan Regional Government and the final decision of the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research’s council, we, as, one of the Kurdistan Regional Government’s bureau have started to follow the steps in the hope of less expenses and higher serves to the people of Kurdistan.
In the meeting and after offering some suggestion on the way of reducing the hierarchy of universities and considering the size of facilities and bureaus of the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research, the decision to reduce 173 directorates at all universities and the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research’s bureaus was made. A new hierarchy to the universities and the other facilities was recomposed. So, among the 487 directorates 173 directorates were reduced and mixed with the other directorates which their works are similar. Then, only 314 directorates to fulfil the tasks and duties of people, students, and lecturers remained.
The result of the decision will reduce the expense of tens of million IQD of the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research to the Kurdistan Regional Government. It will also serve the people, employees, students, and lecturers in a better way while reduce too many routines. For instance, if some done his deals and works via tow directorates, now he/she can only pass one directorate since we have mixed their works because their works are close together. Instead of passing two directorates, the students, employees, people, and lecturer will only need done their deals via one directorate.
