Conclusions of the Management Board on the implementation of the Agency’s new administrative structure

2021-09-23

The Management Board was informed about the implementation of the Agency’s new administrative structure.

  • Welcoming the changes made to address comments made at the Management Board meeting in June 2021, the Management Board notes however that the revised version of the Frontex Internal Structure and Rules of Procedure (FISRoP) presented at the present meeting is work in progress to further align with the MB Decision 43/2020. Further work is needed to ensure that the internal procedures are aligned with the management and coordination mechanisms provided for in the regulatory framework.

  • In particular, the Management Board underlines that the functions of the Deputy Executive Directors must be well translated into the FISRoP, inter alia, by creating the adequate conditions to support the oversight that they are to exercise over their respective areas and the entities assigned to them. It must be the Deputy Executive Directors who will ensure the coordination of various entities assigned to them and among themselves, with a view to reporting on their work to the Executive Director.

  • Acknowledging the authority of the Executive Director to allocate human resources, the Management Board invites him to ensure that this allocation is proportionate to the functions assigned to the different entities within the Agency, including the Cabinet which should have only a supporting function, not interfering with the hierarchical structure as established by the Management Board.

  • Also, further changes are needed to adequately translate the independent functions into the FISRoP, especially in light of reporting by these entities to the Management Board.
In this context, the Management Board calls on the Executive Director to ensure that the draft FISRoP is revised accordingly, to consult the DEDs on the content once appointed and to report back to the Management Board in the subsequent meeting of the Management Board.
