The Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine has approved the «Procedure for providing local state administrations with powers of higher executive bodies and agencies.» The procedure defines the mechanism for allowing local state administrations to exercise functions of ministries and other central executive bodies, as provided by law, Information-analytical Bulletin of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine reports.

The government resolution «is aimed at strengthening the responsibility of local administrations for exercise of executive power in their territory». The measure was adopted in line with Presidential Decree No. 307 «Actions to ensure exercise of executive power by local state administrations in appropriate territory» dated May 24, 2013.

According to the decree, the nation’s regions, including the Kyiv and Sevastopol state administrations, may petition the Cabinet of Ministers, ministries and other central bodies of executive power directly.

Proposals from local administrations on transferring functions of ministries and other central authorities will be approved by central agencies, whose responsibilities are to be appropriated by local bodies. If a ministry or state agency wants to delegate grants of authority, the measures shall be coordinated with local administrations and subject to ministerial approval.

Proposals on giving to local state administrations functions of ministries, other central executive bodies, and higher local administrations shall include: legal basis for transfer, list of powers to be transferred, justification of transfer and financial and economic calculations of required material and financial expenses.

Experts say if the Cabinet reviews and approves the transfer proposal it must include clauses on providing the local state administrations with relevant financial, material, and technical resources required for exercise of ministerial functions.

Government analysts say local state administrations will report to the Cabinet of Ministers, ministries, other central government bodies and higher local administrations on use of transferred powers on a semi-annual basis.
