Day-to-day management business

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In German local law , a business of ongoing administration is the term for a routine matter that is not of fundamental importance to the self-governing body in terms of factual, political and, in particular, financially, and which can therefore usually be dealt with by the administration according to established rules without a Collegial body must deal with it separately. It is a collective term that includes all tasks that are not specifically described and assigned to a specific body . The classification of the task under local law is irrelevant . Examples from the community level are the purchase of office supplies and the allocation of gyms, but also the issuing of administrative acts . The financial scope depends on the financial strength and thus indirectly on the size or number of inhabitants of the respective regional authority . A value limit is regularly set for this. In the case of smaller municipalities, this averages € 10,000, whereas in the Lower Saxony state capital Hanover , for example, it is € 125,000. The council (in Lower Saxony also the administrative committee ) can, however, reserve the right to pass resolutions on individual transactions; conversely, in Lower Saxony the mayor can also submit individual cases to the administrative committee of his own accord.
