Ministry of Economy limits agency spending on reimbursements

People management

Each agency now has a ceiling on the reimbursement of assigned and requested employees and employees.

Federal government agencies and entities will need to observe an annual limit on reimbursement expenses due to assigned and requested employees and employees. The new rules are available in Ordinance No. 358 , published in the Official Gazette (DOU) last September 5. The unprecedented measure is yet another initiative of the Ministry of Economy to curb spending on personnel.

Currently, civil servants from non-dependent state-owned enterprises and state and municipal civil servants may be assigned, required or moved to work in direct, local and foundational federal public administration. In such cases, the Union reimburses the state enterprise or the subnational entity, repaying the installments they spend with the public agent, pursuant to Decree No. 9,144, of August 22, 2017 .

The new ordinance, inspired by Constitutional Amendment No. 95, which created the New Fiscal Regime, sets a specific ceiling for spending on personnel outside the Federal Administration, preventing the possibility of an uncontrolled increase in these expenses due to the privatization process and eventual admission. employees of privatized companies.

The limits were established based on a study by the Federal Budget Secretariat and took into account the amounts executed with this type of expenditure in 2018.

From the ordinance, when forwarding the request to the Secretariat of Personnel Management and Performance (SGP), the agencies must discriminate all repayable installments, including the respective monthly amounts and also the annual expenditure, and certify the existence of budget availability. .

It will be up to the agency's expense regulator to control the volume of assignments, requisitions and movements, so that the limit set in the ordinance is observed. If the agency exceeds this limit, it must terminate as many assignments, requisitions or movements as are necessary to adjust the expense.

With the ordinance, the agencies remain autonomous over their assignment and requisition processes, but should make a cost-benefit analysis in choosing according to the impact of wages on budget space. They may also set specific internal limits for their linked entities.

In the case of regulatory agencies these limits were set by the ordinance, as they were transformed into sectoral bodies of the Federal Planning and Budget System by Law No. 13,848, of June 25, 2019.

The ordinance does not affect requisitions, assignments and movements in which there is no reimbursement, as occurs with employees of state-owned dependent companies and employees who are already part of the direct, municipal and foundational federal public administration.
