Bs. As., 7/4/93
VISTO the purpose of the National Government to assist in the Reform of Provincial Government Administrations and Law No. 24.130, and
It is a common problem for the Provincial States and the Municipality of the City of Buenos Aires to oversize the occupied personnel plant, in many cases making public employment under cover of unemployment.
That the said is one of the determining factors in the inefficiency of States, which must be attacked with measures that tend to reduce their incidence by implementing incentives for the creation of jobs in the private sector and the voluntary withdrawal of State agents.
That such programmes should not be transformed into generators of excessive self-employed, with their sequelae of failed investments and personal discouragement, with the subsequent increase in poverty and migration to other centres of greater relative development.
In line with the above paragraph, it is necessary to create an instrument and mechanisms that encourage the creation of jobs by private companies, giving priority to the absorption of agents who voluntarily withdraw from the provincial and municipal public sector.
That, also, the critical financial situation in which most of the Provincial States and the Municipality of the City of Buenos Aires are going through makes it impossible to make available resources to guide them to the payment of financial compensation or compensation for voluntary retirement.
That, for the reasons stated, it is considered appropriate to issue, on the part of the National State, a title that will be called BONO FOR THE EMPLEMENTATION IN THE PROVINCIAL PRIVATE SECTORS, to be used in the compensation for the voluntary withdrawal of the agents who opt for this regime, compensation that will be calculated according to the age and the remuneration that the agent registers at the time of accepting the regime.
That, on the other hand, and as an incentive to private sector companies that absorb ex-public agents covered by the present, the same long-term and advantageous credits will be awarded, for amounts to be determined on the basis of their bond compensations and the amount of employed labour.
That, thus, the double objective is to clean provincial finances and establish an economic dynamization mechanism by facilitating access to credit to private companies that incorporate labour.
That, and for the purpose of achieving a better monitoring and evaluation of the fulfilment of the objectives of the creation of the Bonus, it is considered appropriate to designate the SECRETARIAT of the PUBLIC OFFICIAL MINISTERY of the INTERIOR, which, through the SUBSECRETARIA OF ASSISTANCE FOR THE REFORM OF THE PUBLICO SECTOR FOR
That competition should also be established in relation to the present regime of the Ministry of Labour and Social Security.
That this regime can be extended to the Companies and other agencies of the National State that implement Transformation Programs agreed with the MINISTERY OF WORK and SECURITY SOCIAL for the voluntary withdrawals of its staff, in such a case, to designate the authority of application to the SECRETARIAT OF HACIENDA of the MINISTERY OF ECONOMY and ARTWS and PUBLIC SERVICES.
It is also necessary to authorize the SECRETARIAT of the PUBLIC FUNCION of the MINISTERIO OF INTERIOR, in conjunction with the SECRETARIAT OF HACIENDA of the MINISTERY OF ECONOMY AND ARTWORKS AND PUBLIC SERVICES, to dictate the complementary norms to the present.
That the present is dictated in the use of the powers conferred by Article 86, paragraph 1, of the National Constitution.
