After the changes in the Ministry of economy and competitiveness through the Royal Decree 226/2014, April 4 and the Royal Decree 672 2014, of 1 August, both modifying the Royal Decree 345/2012, of 10 February, which develops the basic organizational structure of the Ministry of economy and competitiveness and amending the Royal Decree 1887 / 2011 , of 30 of December, by which is sets the structure organic basic of them departments Ministerial, and in accordance with them principles of efficiency in the allocation and use of them resources public, rationalization of them activities materials of management and service effective to them citizens that inspire the operation of the administrations public, comes address in this time a restructuring of the Institute national of statistics , an independent body of the mentioned Ministry.

In the frame of the program of reforms driven by the Government of Spain, of rationalization and improves of the Administration public, the Institute national of statistics (in forward, INE) should follow producing statistics of it more high quality to the lower cost possible, deepening in the achievement of greater degrees of efficiency, being this one of them principles basic on which has of swung it production statistics official of them next years.

Key to achieving this efficiency is coordination among all producers of the statistical system in Spain, and also within the INE, avoiding duplications and taking advantage of synergies in the internal production processes.

In the line with the new model of production statistics that promote them institutions European has of tender is to a model of standardization of the production statistics, integrating is the statistics in a unique system of production, with an infrastructure technical only, stands standardized of programs computer, exploitation common of sources of data, and special preeminence in the use of records administrative , provided that this is possible.

The new structure of the INE that is approves through this real Decree not supposed an increase or of units organic or of costs, but responding to the model previously described, keeps them subdirectorates general producers of them different statistics, with light changes of denomination and of content, and transforms two subdirectorates general that integrate the model of production.

Well, first of all, the General Sub-Directorate of sampling and data collection becomes the Department of Control of the production statistics and sampling, with the rank of general Subdirectorate, which has as main task of INE statistical activity planning and the coordination of the production processes of the operations. This subdirectorate general will coordinate the Subdirectorate General of collection of data and the Subdirectorate General of technologies of the information and of them communications.

Also, secondly, the Subdirectorate-General for standards and training is transformed into the Department of methodology and development of the statistical production, with rank of general Sub-Directorate, and aims which, through the development of methodologies and design of production processes, to ensure standardization as well as the promotion of the use of administrative records.

Both the Department of Control of the production statistics and sampling as the Department of methodology and development of the production statistics will maintain a close collaboration and coordination with the address General of coordination statistics and of statistics labour and of prices.

In addition, the significance that the European component is acquiring in the statistics and their impact at the national level, appears to advise that the Presidency of the INE is in contact directly with international affairs. By this reason, is has decided the Suppression organic of the Subdirectorate General of relations international, leaving of be subordinated to an address General, and passing the Cabinet of the Presidency of the INE to assume their functions directly. Moreover, given the importance of the national accounts, the General Sub-Directorate of economic accounts and employment becomes Department of national accounts, with the rank of general Subdirectorate, although this does not alter its structure approved in Royal Decree 950/2009, of 5 June, amending the Royal Decree 508/2001 of 11 may , by which it approves the Statute of the Institute national of statistics.

Finally, greater efficiency in the Organization of the work of collection of statistical operations that perform the provincial delegations of the INE, favoured by the use of new technologies, demands not to restrict the scope of collection of statistical operations assigned to a given delegation to the territory of the province in which it is headquartered. So, it is necessary to modify provisions in the Real Decree 390/1998, of 13 March, which regulates the functions and organizational structure of delegations of economy and finance, including the powers of the provincial delegations of statistics at provincial and supraprovincial level are collected.
